Mirtazapine

Mirtazapine (15mg) for insomnia

Mirtazapine helps me fall asleep and it also helps to keep me asleep. As for side effects, i've felt dizziness, as well as a lightheaded feeling and balance problems.

Zolpidem

6/5/2018 | | 30moderated by Susan
Zolpidem (10mg) for insomnia

At first i thought this was a kind of placebo drug, only after taking four pills did i actually feel any kind of difference, so i concluded that this medication is not for me. sleeping pills don't have much effect on me and i have tried loads of them, the only thing that would help was muscle relaxants.

Temazepam

Temazepam (10mg) for insomnia

A kind of wonder drug for me, i sleep right through the night. It almost feels like nighttime didn't even happen. No dreams, just a dark void.

Zolpidem (10mg) for insomnia

hi, for years i have had trouble sleeping or i haven't slept at all! Many periods with temazepam, bromazepam, etc. in combination with alcohol. Since two years ago I've been using zolpidem, from 12 till now 1 1/2 10 mg, i sleep well or it's more like i go into a coma. This is for very bad sleepers but do be careful, it is very addicting!

Diazepam

10/3/2017 | | 47moderated by Charlotte
Diazepam (10mg) for insomnia

I was once given this for severe stress and insomnia, been taking it for so long (50 mg as 1 x 10 mg and 2 x 20 mg for 30 years) that I can't not take it any more (been off it twice for long periods of time and they were pure hell). I just decided for myself that I need to keep taking it, after all it does more good than harm and I can sleep..... But think long and hard before you start taking ...

Flurazepam

Flurazepam (15mg) for insomnia

After the sudden death of my partner in 2000 I started taking this drug. And stayed on it for about 14 years thanks to repeat prescriptions, until my doctor realised! And that was only because I had to extend my driver's licence. Switched after talking to him.

Temazepam

Temazepam (20mg) for insomnia

I can only sleep with heavy sleeping agent. The side effects are severe: I'm blurred, depressed, suicidal, have concentration problems, very dry mouth, it gives holes in the tooth necks, dry skin, eczema, unstable movement, I fall fast. It is like poison that is being stored in the organs.

Zolpidem

Zolpidem (10mg) for insomnia

This medication was prescribed to me against sleep disturbances. I couldn't sleep at all. So I followed the directions of the doctor, I took this medicine just before I went to sleep. On the first day, no worries, I took the pill, I lay down and 10 minutes later I slept. At the end of the second week, I started to have a very serious side effect. Hallucinations, I still remember seeing a bear i...

Zolpidem

Zolpidem (10mg) for insomnia

Three hours after taking this drug I woke up in a total panic. Sitting on the couch for a while I could recall what it was all about. Something on my to do list had apparently turned into a gigantic nightmare in very clear and scary detail. Frightening.

Mirtazapine

4/17/2017 | | 50moderated by Henry
Mirtazapine (15mg) for insomnia

I was prescribed this to help me sleep better and finally actually start feeling better. I still sleep very irregularly and wake often during the night. During the day I am ridiculously drowsy and must seem like a zombie. I struggle to concentrate and often find myself nodding off.

Oxazepam

4/17/2017 | | 62moderated by Charlotte
Oxazepam (10mg) for insomnia

I've used Oxazepam from Sandoz and Centrafarm for years, as needed and without any kind of addiction. All of a sudden I got Oxazepam from Accord, small tablets without grooves so not easy to break in half. I might as well not be taking these Oxazepam, they do so little for me! It's basically a placebo.

Seroquel

Quetiapine (50mg) for insomnia

It helps to get a clear mind and stops brooding. Side effects I had are a dry mouth, waking up very drowsy and bellyache.

Mirtazapine

3/28/2017 | | 59moderated by Philip
Mirtazapine (30mg) for insomnia

First started taking Trazolan for insomnia in 1985. Then it was Remeron with mirtazapine as the basis. In 2014 I switched to mirtazapine lozenges because the Remeron wasn't helping with stress and insomnia. In 2015 I developed serious suicidal side-effects, got help from the mental health team… But I was still prescribed them. In June 2016 I stopped taking the antidepressants after another atte...

Seroquel

12/6/2016 | | 20moderated by Philip
Quetiapine (25mg) for insomnia

To start off with I had temazepam for my insomnia but because you can't have it for the long term, the psychiatrist prescribed me Seroquel. It's an antipsychotic but sleepiness is one of the side effects and he had had good experiences with it. I started on 25 mg but this worked too well, I could hardly wake up at all. After a few days I started taking just half a tablet (easy to cut with a pil...

Trazodone

12/2/2016 | | 64moderated by Philip
Trazodone (100mg) for insomnia

The first 7 days I was a bit dizzy and not feeling quite awake. After that no more side effects. I also take Lormetazepam without any problems. My nurses told me this is for staying asleep, but here I read its an antidepressant. I would like to know which it is.

Seroquel

9/30/2016 | | 50moderated by Henry
Quetiapine (25) for insomnia

I was prescribed 25 mg Seroquel for insomnia (chronic) the number of side effects I experienced was enough to stop. As an apnoea patient, as far as I am concerned, this is not the best choice, my breathing was affected so much that it was not good for me and this was just from 1 x 25 mg tablet. I also got a banging headache and was really dizzy, to which they said: Persevere! That's the marketi...

Sertraline

Sertraline (50mg) for insomnia

From pill 1 I had peace in my head. Tried everything else so now it's antidepressants. I should have done it a lot sooner. I struggle to fall asleep but I have so much more energy that the side effect is negligible.

Diazepam

9/8/2016 | | 49moderated by Henry
Diazepam (5mg) for insomnia

Easily manageable works a bit longer, sleep very well on it, more calm during the day, for example on long-haul flights etc. Recommend it for now and then, up to two times a week. Take zolpidam once a week on a Sunday to get me ready for the new week.
