DEAR SLEEP DOCTORS:

We have several this week, tune in to hear the docs answer your questions.

“Molly” from Nashville, TN:

In my last consultation with Dr. Wind he recommended the use of the oral appliance and referred me to a dentist. He concluded that I was a good candidate for its use. Problem is Cigna Healthspring won’t pay anything toward it. I find that odd. Are there no other of your retired patients who have my problem? So far my PCP and I have hit a wall. Please help.

“Tom” from Smyrna, TN:

Can you tell me the long terms effects of amitriptyline? My wife, 57, has
used it for the last few years, after giving up on Ambien. Sure I’d like to
get rid of everything, maybe someday I will. She has said and done some
things over time that aren’t normal, including recently. Wish and pray
to God she’d try CBT but so far I can’t talk her into it.

“Steve” from Paris:

My son is 12 years old and is still wetting the bed…..we’ve tried everything, but he still has almost nightly episodes of wetting. Please help!

“Marty” from Franklin:

My wife and I have one child, a three year old son. He is now in the habit of coming into our bedroom and getting in our bed most nights. My wife lets him, whereas I think he should stay in his own bed. Your thoughts?


Thanks for reading our blog and thanks for listening to the show. Until next time, pleasant dreams.
