Waking up in the middle of the night

Similar to the OP ("JJJ"), after 6 months with CPAP, I continue to wakeup up absolutely every night after about 4 hours of sleep and find it impossible to get back to anything that might be called "sleep".

I had the same problem, but it has faded away. It takes time, but it does happen.

The solution for me was to stop worrying about it. Waking up in the night is something everyone does, what varies is whether or not we have a memory of it.

I would get out of bed and read with the lowest light level possible.

A doctor prescribed trazodone, which also helped. If I have trouble falling asleep I take half a pill. If I wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep I take a half of a pill.

I only take a few pills per month because I try to take it only when I really need it.
