Reviews for Rozerem to treat Insomnia

Sort by:

"I was using over the counter medicines to sleep. I wake up after 3-4 hours of sleeping. I took Rozerem when I woke up and was able to sleep for an additional six hours. I feel great the next morning. Not groggy. I have only used it for two nights so it remains to be seen how it will work long term but so far much better than Ambien in terms of quality of sleep."

"I have been diagnosed with Bipolar, anxiety disorder and a few others. Insomnia is included in the mix. If I do not have normal sleep patterns my mental and emotional health become at risk very quickly. For the first month Rozerem 8mg worked well. I fell asleep easily within 30 minutes. I could have chosen to fight the drowsiness, but why take a medication then deliberately work against it? I found I had no side effects. However now I am into my second month and I am finding I can only average 2 to 4 hours sleep again and during the day I suffer vertigo and tunnel vision. So I am not sure that I will continue this medication. My insurance covered the medication without any extra paperwork."

"Initially made me drowsily sleepy, but did not remain asleep. Got up after two hours to pee. Trouble after that falling asleep, slept two more hours. Got up again to use bathroom. Then fell asleep again and slept for approximately four hrs. Got up and was dizzy all day long and had stomach upset and diarrhea as well."

"I'm 40 years old and ever since I hit puberty, my clocks have been backwards - up all night, sleeping until noon . I've tried everything. I've been on Rozerem for a year now and it's changed my life completely! I was reluctant at first, because it's slow working and I wanted an immediate fix. Things like Ambien did this, but only in short term. Rozerem took some time to really work, about a full month, but looking back it was so worth it! I have ADHD so deal with daytime sleepiness also. To counter that, I also take Nuvigil. This combination has been the best EVER! I'm productive and wake up easily. I'm convinced that Rozerem is the key. I couldn't sleep all day even if I wanted to - the daylight wakes me! Finally, my clocks are right!"

"I've had insomnia to varying degrees for about 12 years now (I'm 30 and the problem started in college) and nothing ever worked reliably for more than a short amount of time. I was recently prescribed Rozerem as I'd never tried it before. Bad idea. In addition to not sleeping, I woke up feeling extremely out of sorts, fuzzy, depressed, and lethargic. Half-way through the next day I'm still struggling to focus and my thoughts are disordered at best, on top of feeling totally exhausted. "

"I had a bad experience each time I tried it. I have been on Ambien for many years, but my Dr wanted to try something else. The Rozerem made me extremely anxious, and did the opposite of what I needed it for! My heart beat fast, and I had a feeling of nervousness and anxiousness. I tried it 4 times, and it was the same all 4. Maybe I'm allergic."

"I was concerned because when I take this medicine I have the most bizarre dreams. I mean they are really out there and the funny thing is I remember them, and and go back if I think about them and continue the dream. To me this would be ok if the dreams were pleasant but they are not always."

"While Rozerem is effective for getting and staying asleep, I am spaced out the next day with a strange feeling that, even though my body has had a good night rest, I still want to go take a nap at periods through the day - not a normal tiredness, but a drug induced grogginess that comes on suddenly. Also, hard to focus my attention the next day. I went on this because Ambien gave me short term memory loss though I had no grogginess the next day on Ambien. The best result for me is to just sleep naturally with whatever hours I can get."

"Rozerem has been a life saver. I have had many sleepless nights before this medicine and now I can function and go back to work, it has been great."

"Full night's sleep, but still not worth the scary nightmares experienced."

"My sleep problem is describe as: ease of falling asleep; extreme-difficulty staying asleep for more than three hours; however, mostly-pleasant dream occurences. I take Ambien occasionally in attempt to fully replenish my body's energy-level. To not become dependent, on occassion I will try Rozerem. The problem then becomes, each time I take Rozerem, it causes me to sleep very lightly with what some may consider "intense-Viagra Effect". It is only after I take some measure to resolve this effect that I then am able to obtain a deep sleep for about five hours; but this deep sleep is always accompanied by what I consider extremely unusual or unpleasant dreams."

"Tried it a few times but it gave me horrible, disturbing nightmares each time I used it! Besides that, it was not helpful in actually getting me to sleep."

"I am coming off more than a couple non-prescribed medicines and could not sleep. I didn't want anything else addicting so the doctor said try this. I take this combined with 1mg of melatonin. Seems to work great so far the only thing I don't know is whether the 50mg of doxepin has something to do but I have taken it 5 days and no problems. I take it at 11pm and am out cold within 20 minutes but I get straight in bed. Other than that no side effects. I sleep right at about 8 hours a night and wake up refreshed, maybe a tiny sluggish for 15 minutes but not really noticeable. "

"I think this medicine is a great alternative to the other prescription sleeping aids. I have had no trouble with it, and on the first day it got me to sleep through the night waking only once, and I fell right back asleep. I'm shocked the rating at the time of my review is only a 5.4."

"Rozerem has little or no effect. Woke up several times on Rozerem, took one 4 hours ago and am up and not even drowsy."

"Took Rozerem last night for the first time and got drowsy and fell asleep, but my body twitched all night. My sleep was not consistent and I woke up all throughout the night. In the morning I slept well past 11 a.m., I felt like a ton of bricks and could not get up. I am usually up and about and running around all day long. Today, I couldn't even leave the house I was so lethargic from the medicine. I stayed home, didn't even change clothes, and laid on the couch with my eyes closed for hours. It's almost 9pm the next day and I still feel really weird and tired. My mind was in a daze all day as if I couldn't get anything done as a result. "

"Tried Rozerem for the first time the other day. It definitely helped me fall asleep, and without the "heavy sedative" feelings that come along with most other drugs- such as Ambien, Lunesta, etc. closest to a natural feeling of wanting to go to sleep, very calming, also helped with racing thoughts. The letdown of this medication was the next day...could NOT get up! Felt as though I had taken a tranquilizer. All day feeling...like I had taken a high double-dose of Ambien. This is my experience though, unfortunately - seemed perfect at first. Everyone is different though, most will probably hopefully have a much different experience. I say try it."

"I have taken it at least 10 times. It is very expensive. And it worked only 1 out of the 10 doses. I am now trying to avoid caffeine and aspirin which is very difficult to do and will see if it works better. "

"I have been taking over-the-counter sleep aids and was up to taking double or triple or even more to be able to get some sleep, most of the time to no help. This is the first prescription of sleep medicines so I don't know if my experience will help. The first time I took Rozerem 8mg I slept all night and on and off all day, but I take so much pain medicines it could have interacted with them. So the next night I halved the dose and did not have the same side effects like the first dose. "

"My doctor prescribed Rozerem last week. I have taken Temazepam 30 mg for years but it had stopped being effective so we are testing alternatives. Last night was the 7th night of taking Rozerem- no help."
