For well over a decade, I have had to be on something for insomnia. I also have been diagnosed with anxiety , depression and PTSD. (Traumatic child and young adulthood ). Recently, I was prescribed Temazepam for my insomnia. I've always had trouble concentrating and a brain fog type symptoms. I have definitely noticed that after my Temazepam has kicked in, my entire thought process changes. I feel like I have clarity and can process information a lot better. Things make sense to me, were as, my thoughts are jumbled and I feel as though I just exsist. What would cause this? Why does it affect me this way? I'm puzzled.I have taken my nightly dose and I'm able to ask my question in a way I hope you understand. I would like to keep my current thought process all of the time. How can I stay out of my fog?
I know it sounds unusual but some people have paradoxical reactions to medication. Sometimes that in itself is a useful diagnostic symptom. I used not to be able to sleep as my brain was like a whirlwind until my Psychiatrist gave me Thorazine (an older 'typical' anti-psychotic). It created order from chaos. Wonderful. :-)
Good luck, Steve
