I know y'all are going to tell me to talk to my dr about this which I will next Fri. BUT I am on 20mg Percocet 10mg flexril. I can't sleep at night. I have been falling asleep between 3:30 and 5:30 AM and sleeping until noon to one PM. I need to get back to more normal sleeping hours. Do any of you take sleep aids and pain pills at bed time? I have some Lunesta 3mg left but it doesn't really help. Last night I took one 4 hours after my pain meds and finally went to sleep. I felt safe at that point but was wondering what everyone else was doing. I have skipped the pain and muscle meds to try to sleep with just the Lunesta and still didn't sleep and had that bedtime pain to boot.

thoughts? what is safe..
