Exclamation Insomnia for 2 years...going crazy!!!!!! HELP



Ok, i guess i'll start from the start. 2 years ago after a very stressful event, i developed insomnia. I am currently diagnosed with a grocery list of problems. here we go: Insomnia obviously, ADD, Panic anxiety disorder, depression, chronic daily migraines, and recently seizures yay! . I have been on too many meds to keep track of. every migraine meds, antidepressents up the ying yang, insomnia meds, anxiety meds, pain killers, and a bunch of others unrelated meds, just so they could see what happened. I've had tests after tests, and so far im in perfect health. my main concern is that I just want to SLEEP!!!!! I've tried ambien, lunesta, antidepressents, benzos. Restoril worked for a little bit, but no longer. Can anyone please tell me something that will just knock me
out!!! please.. any feedback is greatful. Thank you

Have you had an overnight sleep study done (also known as polysomnography)? Ask your primary care physician for this test. i had horrible insomnia for years. After a sleep study I was finally diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea. Now that it is being treated with cpap my insomnia has improved.

Clonazepam can help you to sleep. I was on 4 mg and it helped to sleep.
It relaxes the muscles and allows you to sleep.

I've never add insomnia but my hubby as had it since a teenager and like yourself it drives him nuts...he's took sleeping tablets to even the heart of an onion which is surposed to be the best and like yourself nothing works.

So i do sympathize with you...myself i take diazepam suffering from seizures, depression etc 5mg and my god after 20mins i'm out for the count.

I really hope the doctor or specialists you see can help you regarding this issue. x
