I’ve been having trouble sleeping and noticed some things that have helped me sleep. Basically my body temperature needs to be colder to get to sleep than before finasteride. Thought it might be a common occurrence.
My mattress traps too much body heat now so I’ve been sleeping on an $8 blow up/air mattress. It traps no heat and if it’s too cold I just throw a blanket on top. For my pillow I bought a $100 Buckwheat pillow, it’s the coolest pillow on the planet, takes some getting used to because it’s really firm but it’s totally worth it, I can’t sleep on any other pillow now. Generally if I’m not yawning or seeing white lights/figures when I close my eyes then I’m too hot and won’t be able to fall asleep.
Another thing, it helps to have the AC on blowing even in the winter, the cold air on my face helps me get more tired. Sometimes it’s not enough for my face to be cold though, the whole body needs to be which is where the air mattress comes in handy. It’s tough finding a balance sometimes though.
I’ve been in bed for hours figuring out why I can’t get tired and I’m pretty sure it’s because I’m too hot. I can’t fall asleep anywhere in any conditions like I could before finasteride.
