    Question Damn opiates

    I've been off opiates for 16 days after abusing for 2 years. I still can sleep. Last night I took my first dose of klonopin 0.05 mg. I kept me up and gave me bad body aches any ideas

    Hi Yvonne

    Welcome :-)

    Sorry about the lack of sleep you are experiencing. One of the tormenting aspects of withdrawal, huh? Boo

    Sleep was also an issue for me when I came off Oxycodone and then Xanax. Some of what helped me was a really disciplined schedule. A hot bath about an hour and a half before bedtime, take Melatonin 3mg tab, TV for an hour, and then lights off. Most nights it worked. On those nights when it didn't, I would make myself lay there for an hour and hope to drift off. If I didn't, then I would get up and wait a couple of hours before I tried again. I was fortunate in that I had retired from work and could afford to not have to get up and get ready. I did, however, always try to get up at the same time.

    I hope the Sandman starts visiting you more often. No sleep is rough to deal with.

    Best wishes
