... Ambein for a little over a year, and then all the sudden I started to sleep walk and do things that I would not normally do. I have been taken off the ambien, and have a very hard time getting and staying asleep. I have thought about changing my primary pain meds, but they work and control the pain, so I kinda scared to mess with them, I have been taking promethazine, to go to sleep. Any suggestions? Im desperate and really need to get some good sleep
I'm also on M.S Contin and know the sleep issue. Temazapam. I take that and it has know ill effects. It doesn't make you tired but when you do go to sleep(at least me) your mind isn't racing,I sleep the whole night,and wake up refreshed not groggy or still sleepy. It is a benzodiazapine( schedule 3 controled substance,ambien isn't ) so you might get some probs getting your doc to write it for you,but if they are intrested in your best intrest they should. It's a sedative hypnotic and works well at least for me & I've tried other junk. They've given me serequel and when I looked it up it was a anti-pyscotic,I was so mad. You take that crap when you wake up you feel drunk. Give it a try,ask the doc all he/she can say is no.
