Lack of deep sleep.
May 30, 2006

I have used ativan, ambien and lunesta for a over a peri of 2 1/2 months for sleep. It's been 2 months since i haven't used anything for sleep.. Most nights, i do go to sleep, but i don't get deep sleep, i awaken easily and am in a trance like state where i have dreams.. but it's not deep sleep.. Has anyone heard of benzo protracted withdrawl syndrome? Supposedly, it takes a while to recover from the symptoms..Has anyone has similar problem, and how long did it take for natural sleep (with deep sleep) to come bacK?
Not getting the deep sleep is very distressing, it is affecting my immune system, i have a cough that just won't go away. Thanks for any input.
My problems with achieving deep sleep was after i used sleep meds and ativan for 2.5 months..I do not have chronic pain or fatigue..Lack of deep sleep has affected my energy levels and immune system.
