Yes, Mike is able to sleep laying down - the gravol really does the trick for him.
So sorry to hear you are both going through this hell but good for you for trying new stuff. Hey, if Greg wants you there with him GREAT! It just seems to be the norm in this group that most folks would prefer to deal with it alone. The key is doing what HE wants - whatever that may be. So if you being there helps him, that's the ticket.
Now you say he's drinking LOTS of water....like, are we talking 8 oz every half hour? That's what he should be doing - or at least every hour if he can't stand that much. If "LOTS" means 6 - 8 glasses a day, that's not enough. Just make sure you check with your doc if he has underlying kidney or liver probs or if he is on lithium. Complications can happen if you flood the body under those conditions.
Thanks for keeping us updated and keep trying to find that magic control....it's there somewhere, but it is different for some everyone.
If the gravol isn't helping, try benadryl...
