Insomnia - Pregabalin/Tysabri

Hi,

Does anyone know if either or both of these drugs cause insomnia.

I have monthly tysabri infusions (on 4th) and take 150mg or pregabalin twice a day. I used to be a great sleeper but I now start wakining from 3-4am and then struggle getting back to sleep.

Any advice would be appreciated

Pregabalin is definitely causing me sleeping problems, I find it is worse when I have just increased the dose. Have you just started taking it?

I’ve never had sleeping problems in the 18 months I’ve been on Tysabri. On the contrary, nearly went on Modafinal recently because I was sleeping so much (seems to have been sorted by the Fampyra, at least for the moment).

Same for me with Tysabri, feel tired more than anything else x
