Sleeping Issues

Streroids are amping her up in the day and keeping her up all night. Is there something that has worked for others to make her sleep at night?

Hi Matt,

I found that there was nothing that I could do while on the steroids to change their effect but it was only temporary. Once the round ended, I was fine until they begin, again. I learned to adjust to having that crazy energy and not getting much sleep. It is not ideal but it does not last. Perhaps someone else has some thoughts as people are different in what works.

What time of the day does she take the Dex. Some patients change up the times that they take the meds. If she takes it in the morning, try taking it at night. That will change her sleep patterns and may be helpful.
