I didn't realize sleep problems were so prevalent among celiacs. There is a word of caution about Ambien. There have been a few cases of people eating during the night (even preparing a full meal) and then not remembering. This is a real concern for those of us who have "forbidden food" in the kitchen or family room.
There have also been warnings about the amnesiac effect of Ambien and other sleep meds. I have experienced episodes of walking & talking in my sleep (with eyes wide open) and then not being able to remember all or parts of what happened. Try explaining: " I don't remember saying there were dogs and cats and Dick Cheney in the rocking chair" to someone who thinks you were hallucinating. Thank goodness they publicized the warning. I should note this was Ambien CR and could have been helped along since I was extremely tired and had an infection when it happened. I'l like to hear from anyone who has had a similar experience.
I know what it's like "When sleep won't come the whole night long".
