As many have found out when a loved one has Dementia, the caregiver sufferes lack of sleep. I am still able to work part time thanks to 2 wonderfull caregivers that help out. But I suffer from lack of sleep now with migrains. My husbands Dr. agreed to try a sleep aid for my husband so that I may sleep. On our first try the Dr. gave him Temazepam 15 mg. It worked only his sleep apena was so bad that I had to keep wakeing him up and had him sitting up in bed to open his airway. Me no sleep again. Any suggestions. Eeker

Ambien doesn't seem to make my partner's sleep apnea worse, and since your husband is bedridden, Ambien's effect on his balance shouldn't be a problem.

Most important thing of course is to call his doctor today to ask for something else to try.

Good luck! I know you need your sleep and he needs his too.
