Insomnia Support Group

Insomnia is a symptom, rather than a disease, and is characterized by inadequate quantity or quality of sleep. People with insomnia complain of difficulty falling or staying asleep, which results in significant impairment of daytime functioning. Insomnia is categorized as transient (shorter than one week), short-term (one to three weeks) or chronic (longer than three weeks).

    Rehab

    Does anyone know if rehab facililities help someone get off of ambien? I know that sounds like a crazy question since there are much worse prescription drugs that people are on and need help with but i dont know what to do as far as my sleep. Ambien works for the most part but not alone. It is in addition to melatonin and zquil and sometimes two ambien if i have a lot of stress like last night...

    I Cured My Insomnia 3 weeks ago, maybe you can too

    See if this sounds familiar.  My sleep has been bad as long as I can remember. Some of the things that happen to me are: getting tired at random times during the day like 3pm, wanting to go to bed at 6:00, and then not being tired anymore at bedtime. At bedtime, I watch the clock and seemingly fall asleep right before the alarm goes off. Oh, and if you wake me up right after I get to sleep, just...

    Any sleep aids that don't affect seraton?

    4
    I am wondering if there are any OTCs for sleep that don't affect seratonin.  5-htp has helped me a bit, but sometimes it is not quite enough, but since 5-htp affects seratonin levels I worry about taking anything else the same night because I don't want to get seratonin syndrome.  Any ideas?

    Seroquel for sleep....Worth the side effects?

    8
    HI all, I've had sleep issues for 30 years and nothing has ever worked except Seroquel. However, the side effects for me are weight gain, depression and general lethargy. So, Im beginning to wonder if I would just be better off getting sleep just once or twice a week rather than being a lazy zombie. Any thoughts, experiences?
