... 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
I have the same problem and I never found a long term answer. In fact too much clonazepam keeps me awake. Xanax works but I quickly get hooked on it so I can't use it. If I could take it only 3 or 4 times a week I'd be fine but I can't do it. Insomnia makes me nuts so I take it simply to get some sleep. This will probably happen to you too. So occasionally I'll take Promethazine. This is like Benedryl but stronger and it feels different. But it makes me sleep 12 hours and has a bad hangover effect. But it's not addictive. I've actually stopped cold turkey several times with no withdrawal at all. It's good for a few weeks. Ask your doc.
