What happened ??????

wave: .....I have been on benzo's for 5 yrs due to panic attacks and insominia. Started taking xanax 1 mg in am and 1 mg at bedtime, this went on for 3 yrs then Dr. wanted to switch to something else because I thought they weren't lasting long enough. He put me on Dalmane 30 mgs at am and 30 mgs at bedtime let me tell you was I wiped out told Dr. that was way to strong so he cut the dose to 15 mgs twice aday. Well that worked better but one day I missed my am dose and no panic attack just took 15 that night so I tried it again the next day after I told Dr I had no aniexty attack during the day he told me to be careful and not go c/t.... but he wanted to try something he gave me rozerem 8 mgs at night to take for sleep and just take dalmane during day. Well I tried it and slepted all night , so I started taking dalmane [ Flurazepam ] every other day then every 3 days to make along story short I haven't taken a benzo in over 4 months and haven't had one withdrawal symptom yet...... just take 1 rorzerem at night for sleep..... Go figure....

Wink Re: What happened ??????

j2006...... I take my lil sleeping pill around 10:00, go to bed at 11:00 and wake up around 7:00 in the morning. I try to stay busy but, can't do much since I'm disabled from chf but I find things to do when I start to feel nervous and I have a reason for that since my only child is in Iraq . Talking to friends on phone walking around yard , anything but, sitting still If I did it without even trying maybe you can too.Just remember the pills are there for you if you need them but, have mercy from God above I feel like a new woman. I'm also going through perimenopause and I'M also 1 year clean from a being a morphine dependant lady . Dee
