Does drinking pepsi max cause insomnia?

Do you think Pepsi Max could cause insomnia? I am 39, no major health issues, fairly healthy. I recently begin drinking pepsi max to cut cals, carbs and sugar. I have drank pepsi since i was a teen and could drink it right up until i went to bed with no issues sleeping. I have also had some trouble sleeping through complete night recently. I am not sure if its just a concidence, or when it started really. Tonight after an entire night of insominia i am wondering if it could be related. i just assumed they had the same level of caffeine in them....but not sure.

I HAVE BEEN SUFFERING HORRIBLE INSOMIA FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS, NOT EVERY NIGHT BUT AT LEAST THREE OR TIMES A WEEK. MY DOCTOR HAD PRESCRIBED TRAZADONE 100MG AT NIGHT. THAT SEEMED TO WORK FOR A FEW WEEKS AND THEN I WOULD WAKE UP AT 3 OR 4 IN THE MORNING NOT BEING ABLE TO GO BACK TO SLEEP. HE THEN PRESCRIBED THE GENERIC FOR AMBIEN AND IT WORKED FOR 2 TO 3 WEEKS VERY WELL AND NOW I M WAKING UP AT THE 3 OR 4 HOUR OF THE MORNING MY FRIEND SUGGESTED THAT I TAKE BOTH THE TRAZADONE AND AMBIEN AT THE SAME TIME AND I WOULD GET THE RESULTS HE DID WHEN HE DID THE SAME THING. MY CONCERN IS THAT I DRINK A HALF PINT OF VODKA BETWEEN 3PM AND BEDTIME WHICH IS MIDNIGHT. I AM CONCERNED THAT THIS MAY CAUSE MAJOR PROBLEMS. MY DOCTOR HAS MADE SEVERAL LIFE CHANGING SUGGESTIONS WHICH I READ IN READERS DIGEST SOME TIME AGO. I TRY TO PRACTICE ALL OF THEM. WHEN I WAS IN THE NAVY I WAS TOLD THAT NOBODY EVER DIED OF LACK OF SLEEP. I DISAGREE

my husband has terrible insomnia (from fibromyalgia) He takes benadryl, 5htp, melatonin, magnesium, lithium salts, eats low carb, drinks hydrogen water (diluted 35% food grade). Are any of these causing too much serotonin or interacting negatively? He also ordered blue ray blocking glasses. He and I have both researched and tried a ton of stuff! Also substituted L-tryptophan for the 5htp and sometimes interchange the melatonin with valerian root. He does not take any prescripts. That what put him in this mess to start with....

My friend has been being drugged by her husband nightly for 8 months. He has been crushing up 100 mgs of Trazodone (Don t know how many pills each time) with unknown amounts of Ambien he has been putting this mixture into a glass of red wine. She noticed the wine was cloudy and was eventually told by her 13 year old stepdaughter that her father was putting white Powder in her glass before pouring the drink. He filled these 2 Rxs at an alternate pharmacy from the one they normally used. He weighs 220lbs she weighs 95lbs. 1) Could this Cocktail Cause death over an extended period of time? 2) Can the ICD9 code for insomnia be used for both prescriptions or would a doctor by law have to use a Separate Code of depression to write for the Trazodone to be taken in conjunction with the ambien? The dosage of ambien was so high that when they did the UA 5 days later it was still very high. Thank You for your help

I took two Mucinex Ds last night about 10 pm… took care of my congestion very nicely, but I was awake for a good portion of the night. I read several reviews and many people seem to be affected this way. What exactly causes this sleeplessness? Is it dangerous to my health? In other words, am I somehow kind of allergic to this medicine? Or could I use just half doses?
