Hello everyone, this is my first post.

I'm male/36, and have recently started experiencing issues with sleeping.

I've always had some OCD/anxiety, but nothing that really changed or affected my life.

In the last 6 months, I've gotten married, bought a home, moved in with my wife, and also had a lot on my plate at work (I'm self employed).

My doctor initially prescribed Zopiclone (Imovane) and I was taking 2.5mg. It was working, but I didn't feel fully rested and also did not like the groggy feeling.

I went off it after about a month, and started laying there night after night not being able to fall asleep at ALL. Not even a minute.

I tried one of my father's Lorazepam (Ativan) 1mg, and it really put me out, without the nasty hang over.

My concern was the dependency of both of these drugs. I tried going back to 2.5mg Zopiclone alone, but no affect. Even went up to 5mg with no luck.

So 3 days ago, I started taking 1.5mg Ativan, and 7.5mg Zopiclone together. Two nights in a row, it knocked me out good.

Last night, I cut back to 1mg Ativan (so cut out 0.5mg) and 7.5mg Zopiclone. Lave there for 3 hours without sleeping. Took another 1mg Ativan and 2.5mg Zopiclone and finally went out.

I hate the ideas of meds, and of course, how they make my head feel.

Has anyone been here, or can any suggest or comment?

Thank you so much in advance :)
