... insomnia for at least ten years now. My doctor does not want me to take them anymore and has me taking 1 mg of Silenor before going to sleep. He said if I wake up in the middle of the night to take just half of the clonazepam but it does not work. I can't sleep at all. He won't prescribe anything else and I am not getting much sleep at all, maybe 3 hours a night if I'm lucky. I so want to get off of the clonazepam but I don't know what to do.. Any help would be wonderful and thank you
