After we get home from the doctor's visit, we are planning to get dad outside today and sit in the sun for a awhile. Our goal is to get my dad on a regular, some what normal schedule. In the recent past, dad will stay up until about 2 or 3 in the morning watching TV or reading. This means he will want to sleep most of the day. Staying up late with dad has cut into my normal sleep schedule and I am definitely suffering from lack of sleep.
At dad's doctor's visit yesterday, we consulted with his doctor about using Melatonin to help my dad sleep through the night. He said that was okay for us to use. Last night, we gave him 5mg of Melatonin at about 10:00 PM and it worked like a champ. Dad slept ALL night which meant we ALL slept all night. I am feeling pretty good today. Definitely better than the last few days.
******Due to a scheduling error, we go back to oncologist tomorrow.******
Have you hand any experience using Melatonin to help you sleep?
