    waking up around too early time and can't fall back asleep?
    An_267365 posted:
    please, please someone reply. i'm asking around in different sites because i dont have access to physical doctor atm.

    whats relevant- i'm 20, female, have ADD, don't take meds for it, have struggled with sleep difficulties in the past.. but not like this, which has been happening for almost a week now: i wake up around 3-4 am but can't fall back asleep. ive been taking an antibiotic to get rid of a dental abscess which i don't see why it would do this to me if it were the case.

    is it insomnia? medicinal side affect? or just ADD being a pain? is this happening to anyone else? please reply.

    (if i posted in the wrong section pls forgive me, i literally joined just now and i am also not familiar with forums of any website...)
