After many weeks of terrible insomnia I am finally better. I originally I was taking 5 mg of Ambien, and still waking up early. The doctor added Klonopin that I take early in the evening to wind down. I only take 1/4 of the lowest dose pill and it works like a dream. Around 9 pm I take the small amount of Klonopin, then at 10:30 my Ambien. I sleep so much better and am beginning to feel like a normal person again the next day. The doctor was very reluctant to let me have Klonipin because he believes it is so addictive, but I promised I was only going to take the small amount in the evening. I told him I thought everything was "trial and error" and I wanted to try this. - I am glad he agreed to let me. For anyone else who is having a terrible time sleeping, see if you can try a little Klonipin in the evening, followed by your sleeping aid - the lowest doses possible. I know many of us prefer natural remedies, unfortunately, they do not always work. I don't believe the low doses I take are going to be dangerous.
