Update from my post yesterday regarding my weird reactions to being on Restoril for the last week. Felt so "out of it" yesterday I called my doc about 4:00 PM. Still hadn't heard from her as of this AM so decided to visit the office and give her my past week's sleep schedule. My sleep didn't improve at all with the Restoril and, in fact, got worse these last few days. I usually wake up between 3-6 times a night. Last night I decided I wasn't taking the Restoril and went to bed about 8:30 with lights out at 9:30. DID NOT SLEEP AT ALL and by 4:00 AM, I decided to take 2 Flexeril which has given me some relief in the past. Slept from 4:00 AM until about 7:00 AM. Anyway, doc's nurse called after I dropped off my "sleep schedule" and said doc would prescribe Klonopin for a month, but it was not a drug to be given over a long period so she wanted to let me know up front the doc wouldn't refil it. Hhhmmm???? Oh well, I don't have a clue if it will work or not so I decided not to argue at this point. I said I would continue to document my sleep patterns: when to bed, when to sleep, when wake up, etc. I will pick up prescrip tomorrow and try tomorrow night. I think doc prescribed .5 mg, but I might just do 1/2 of that first night. Wish me luck. I do feel much more in control today than I did yesterday. That seems so strange that a med for sleep could have made me that wired.
