Can you go back and see them again if you want to try a different medication?

Does Benadryl work for making you sleepy? (I know it has the opposite effect in some people.) Maybe you could try that for the next few days? Magnesium can help with relaxation, too. Or melatonin?

Melatonin has been working for me the past week or so.

Ooh, i think im watching the first Gunsmoke with Burt Reynolds!!! He was a regular for a season or so.

Eta - i always wondered about his backstory, how he came to be in Dodge. It was pretty good.

Getting ready to take diabetic cat to the vet to check his blood sugar since we increased his insulin dose. I am hopeful that it's helping at least a little, as he's still been spending more time out in the main part of the house rather than hiding in the closet. I wish it would help him walk better, but maybe in time.



ETA: just got back home from vet. She actually decreased his insulin down to 2.5 units twice a day from 3. He'd been at 2 before she upped it to 3. We go back again in a week...

I would try, but I go inpatient on Tuesday. I might call him on Monday to see what he says.

Yep, I'm one of those people where Benadryl has the opposite effect. Melatonin has never done anything for me. Never have tried magnesium.
