    Howdy All,

    I've tried ambein, klonopin, and trazedone and they either made me physically tired or I became dependent on them to sleep. Anyone know of a god sleep med that just quiets the mind and phsyically wears one out?

    (Note: I'm on 1200mg of Seroquel and still not tired - I know, my insomnia is freakish)

    Obviously not everthing works for everyone, but I have been on Clonidine for years. Its real purpose is to lower heart rate, but in smaller, healthier people it doesnt affect you. It's been working well for me for years.

    Have you tried Remeron? I take it every night before I go to bed and it really helps me get to sleep, BUT I get a fair number of really freaked-out/bizaar dreams.

    wow i sure wish i could pass one along. i've been on trazadone for about 3 yrs and it has begun to not work. i have been trying so many things my friends are giving me to try and nothing is working. i guess you could say my isomnia is freakish too.

    imovane has always worked the best for me, it puts me to sleep but I don't wake up groggy in the morning.

    I have pretty bad insomnia, and I was prescribed Temazepam, a benzodiazepine.

    It's of the most potent benzo's out there. US pilots in the army use it to sleep. It's a tranquillizer. When you take 30mg, it's nice. It just makes everything quiet and soft. Your footsteps (Impairs motor function though). You just close your eyes and drift to sleep because everything is peaceful, quiet, and soft.

    Can be habit forming, if taken for more than 3 weeks.

    Id vote for Remeron too. Just be careful if you have RLS. Made my RLS act up something FIERCE! And its a notorious drug for weight gain, but sedation, it does do the trick for that. At LOWER doses tho. You probably want to be on 15 mgs or less for sleep. Remeron gets LESS sedating at higher doses.....sounds weird I know, but it just is. Seroquel is the same way. Just a thought
