I have some pretty severe and chronic insomnia which makes my depression much worse (hey, eternal rest sounds very appealing when you've slept only 8 hours for the entire week). I've tried trazedone 50mg-600mg, Ambein 10mg-20mg, Halcion, Klonopin 2mg, Xanax, Chloral Hydrate 100?g - now my doc has put me on temazepam (another benzo) @ 30mg, I took it 3 hours ago and here I am, still coherent even, not tired in the least - I'm going to take another 30mg again, just to see if I'm taking snake oil. And no - benedryl and OTC meds don't even phase me, melatonin/anti-histamin, chamomile, etc. Tried thorazine for a while too - just made me drool and drag my feet around - but that was for my psychosis mainly (it's also used to tranquilize lions, tigers, and other large mamals) My family said my only option might be a frying pan - it's awful not to be able to sleep a full night and constantly feeling exaushted. Any Ideas? Anything else people know that might help in the least would be greatly appreciated - no matter how small or plain the idea might seem. PS Already tried the booze and other illicit drugs to get sleep - just made me high or drunk, no sleep though (even with chronic purple haze and jack daniels on top, if you know what that is). I've been sober for about five months now (except a morphine I took last week, my step father gave it to me cause it knocks him out, just made me kinda goofy and defintely not tired). :dry: I'm all out of ideas and sick of my blasted brain that never takes a rest. PLEASE HELP!
