I'm being taken off of klonopin , im down to .25 mgs and having trouble sleeping. Can I take the recommend dose of simply sleep? I believe it is 2 pills for a total of 50mgs..I really don't want to take trazodone, leaves me with a bad hangover feeling.
I'm taking myself off of clonazepam too and I've been researching what a good substitute would be to help me transition. I read that Lyrica is a good substitute, and is used in benzo withdraw clinics. So is gabapentin. If you research about those medications it may be helpful. If simply sleep is over the counter (I've never heard of it) it should be just fine to take. I always call my local pharmacist and they are really helpful about telling me what I can and cannot take with what I'm already taking. I take clonazepam during the day, and zolpidem for sleep. Sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night and cannot go back to sleep I take one tylenol PM and it helps me fall back to sleep. The pharmacist says that's OK, and I've never had a problem with it. I would say give your pharmacy a call if you're worried about it just to be safe.
