It has been 10 days on the med. The dreams aren't as scary, and I have gone from 4 hours a night to 5....

I used 10 mg zopidem for 7 years. It worked like a charm. I went from 10 to 15 to 20 mg of this new stuff. Nothing. I'm just going to have to go one week Belsomra and 45 mg mirtazapine and one week zolpidem. I had such high hopes. But doesn't get rid of my sleep anxiety.

The pharmacist said the only side effect was vivid dreams. It is going down the Alice in Wonderland's rabbit hole. It is supposed to get better after a week. Here's hoping the pharmacist is right.

My insomnia is invincible to matter what I take. Or build tolerance quickly. Tried Belsomra 10 and 20 but it doesn't do anything.

10 years suffering with insomnia, tried over the counter sleep aids, then Ambien and Lunesta and still couldn't get the sleep I needed. Dr prescribed a new medicine Belsomra, started on 10mg for a week and pushed up to 15, then 20 mg. It works hands down. Such a relief. I'm not staring at the ceiling for hours between 2-4pm every night, I am actually sleeping. Mild grogginess the first few days but seems to have disappeared.
