... Well, I think it was for the sleep. I have heard that older antidepressants like Remoron and Trazadone are better but nothing is guareentee and all drugs for sleep have dependancy/tolerance/withdrawal issues!

... Hello. Let me start out by saying I'm sorry you are going through this. I have zeroed in on a few things that might help you. 1) just last week I had a sleep study and it was determined I have severe sleep apnea only in REM sleep. This seems a likely cause for this sensation because these shutting down episodes seem to happen when im dreaming. I will go from a vivid dream to... (2 replies)
... I am concerned about becoming dependent on these benzodiazepines for sleep, as I know one has to just keep increasing the dosages in order to sleep. ... (0 replies)
... I'm a 31-year-old man suffering from frequent and severe anxiety while sleeping. Also sometimes when I'm awake, but my main concern is my most frequent and severe NOCTURNAL ANXIETY/PANIC ATTACKS! Everyone has tried waking up from a nightmare gasping and sweating. But that's not very often, a least not for "most people". More often that not I wake up that way. Wet with... (5 replies)
... You could try a sleep med such as ambien - it has a lower risk of dependence than benzodiazepines, and has shown it self to be effective long term. If you feel your not sleeping is effecting you during the day, it might be worth a try. Doxepin in low doses (10-20mg at night) is a totaly non habit forming sleep aid, might be worth a try if you want to avoid benzodiazepine... (14 replies)
... The body will become tolorant to the effect of Seroquel in the doses used for sleep (where it acts as a very very expensive antihistamine, like benadryl) The studies on benzodiazepines such as Klonopin are conflicting, some show tolorance develops, others do not (one conducted by the british medical Journal on a drug closely related to clonazepam called nitrazepam showed no...

... It appears that people may be confusing "sleep paralysis" with one or more other disorders. 1. "Sleep paralysis" generally refers to a condition wherein one's brain "wakes up" to general alertness yet most of one's *body* seems to be still asleep. During such states one may be able to hear, but generally can NOT open one's eyes or move. This is due to the different rates at... (10 replies)

... There is actualy good evedence that benzodiazepines and Z drugs keep helping sleep long term - trials have lasted 8 months in sme cases, and peoples sleep was still improving.

... Actually the strongest and most potent benzodiazepine is Flunitrazepam also known as Rohypnol.. 7 to 10 times more potent than (diazepam/Valium).. I have been on Klonopin/Clonazepam for over 2 decades.. With all due respect I dont know exactly where your research was done, concerning Clonazepam.. (21 replies)
... I have done research on this out of curiosity, and the one that is the strongest is Klonopin. Klonopin is normally given to people with bipolar disorder and people with epilepsy. I think there is some controversy about Klonopin and Xanax. I have taken most all benzodiazepines, and Xanax makes me the sleepiest and it is addictive, because the affects of it are short acting. It... (21 replies)
... Tolerance issues of benzos, side effects of SSri's all can lead to sleep problems. People definately become dependant on sleep meds to the point that they will take whatever they need in order to sleep and avoid any tolerance withdrawal symptoms that come with tolerance to effects of normal doses. Tolerance withdrawals are actually withdrawal symptoms that can occur without... (1 replies)
... Benzodiazepines are dose dependent, in other words at certain doses they are equally as strong, the only difference between some is duration of action. In my experience I have noticed Xanax to be the best choice, but at 2mg. which is a high dose. Regardless, I would strongly recommend staying away from them when needed for chronic sleep problems. They are just as addictive as... (21 replies)

... I think it's a good idea to see the doctor for a physical to rule out any physical conditions, but that's all. Take it from someone who's been there: the high-end , prescription stuff for sleep is far worse to take than the OTC stuff in the long run as they have issues of severe dependancy, tolerance withdrawals, protracted withdrawal syndromes. Most prescriptions are... (4 replies)
