Of course as I'm sure this is a main topic for so many and is often discussed, but I need to try something else for sleep! Sleep's gotten so backward I've been sleeping like 1hr at night, then unable to again until about midday till 5-6pm. Its horrid, cant function in the least. I hate phenergan but I used it last nite, and finally slept from 2am-8am for once. Needed more but coudln't sleep again till i crashed for 2hrs at 6pm. However phenergan is the WORST. Like many sleep drugs it stays in my brain for at least 24hrs. Have the worst, groggiest heaviness in the head, brain and body all day off it, and thats only 1/4 of a 10mg tablet. So hard to find anything that doesnt give worse side effect than benefit. Been on valium for years, its one of the only things I tolerate for some reason. Only on 1/2 a tab still though, which doesnt put me to sleep. Sometimes 1, even that doesnt work well. I'd have to keep raising it to get the sleep effect, which I won't do. Anyone had success with certain drugs that don't leave you non functionally hung over all the next day? I've tried Ambien, unisom, diphenhydramine (benadryl) and some others, all have intolerable effects i.e. complete zombie brain flattening the next day. Melatonin is pretty much just as bad. My personality and communication with people just leaves the building for about 24hrs. All herbal sleep remedies are completely useless. Let me know! ~C.
