    It has really helped my sleep, before I was getting none at all, waking up every hour. I take 1mg tablet at bedtime and I'm not groggy the next day, and I feel less anxious too. I know it's a benzo and I've never been a big fan of the benzos but this seems to work well for me. I sleep all night long, don't even move, and it's helped my teeth grinding too.

    Any body else take it??

    thanks for your kind words on the message board, I appreciate that.

    I am glad to hear the klonopin worked for you and there were no long term side effects. If it continues to work for me this will be a dream come true.

    I have had insomnia a very long time and the tooth grinding has gone on since I was a kid. How long have you ground your teeth for? do you have TMJ too? ever have a night guard made? I had three of them, bit through every one LOL so gave up on that idea.

    i know I am not grinding now because I dont wake up with that headache.

    i am having to get crowns because of all my grinding, my teeth are breaking (well I am 50 what can I expect), maybe this will help slow it down.

    be well,

    OMG the best med I ever started taking, don't know how I lived without it. 1mg here too, and the sleep is soooooo much better then when I was on Elavil.

    Good Luck
    I've been taking for about a year with no problems.
