Yes please stop taking these on your own. You may want to reduce your dosage over several weeks slowly to avoid any withdrawal effects. Some people under a Doctors supervision have been prescribed these for insomnia but at night only.
Try melatonin from any pharmacy or health food store before bed. No rx needed
This is a dangerous medicine with very bad side effects. If You cant tell Your Doctor please taper very slowly! If You start feeling sick while withdrawing please go to ER! Not a recreational drug either. The side effects have made Me soo ill that I think of it as evil! I would rather go without sleep than losing My bowels, my memory, speech or words plus chronic infections! Mostly upper respiratory but recently bacterial menegitis! That's just the tip of My side effects. Excruitiating pain in pelvic region. The longer I take it the more side effects I get. It does cause fatigue! Good luck! Rener
