I'm going to see the GP on weds...she wanted me off the Zolpidem which had appeared to reduce effectiveness (something to do with with removing hydroxyzine which aslo helped with sleep and anxiety) Anyway, she gave me Zopiclose (I wouldn't take Tamazepam)a dn now have I had problems. night terrors, lack of sleep like youwouldn't believe...I've taken in early before bed and lie awake, I've taken it late just as I go to bed nd I like awake. I awake several times in the night and feel grim in the morning and am not functioning properly. I also take 900mg Valerian...don't drink caffeine etc... Any suggestions which way to go....will even consider anti-depressants ...they started up the night terrors years back so survived for a bit on St John's Wort. But the anxiety and the depression as getting more in evidence...as is the rotten pain taken a hold.... Advice that I can present to this women who last said to me: Perhaps you ought to accept that sleep is not part of your life...at least if you are resting! Yeah right!
