I would like to get a medication I can take at night to induce deep sleep. Here are a few things I have tried recently: gabapentin-didn't work well. INSANE side effects. gave me panic attacks for the first time in ten years even after one dose mirtazapine- awesome for sleep. VERy potent but way too long of half life. I could sleep for days on this stuff ambien - took in many years ago and stopped working after a while. Very addictive and could not sleep with or without it after being on in a while lunesta- same story as ambien trazadone- took some of this but feels very toxic. sleep does not feel refreshing benadryl - take it all the time for allergies so it doesn't make me too tired. not refreshing sleep hydroxyzine- same as benadryl melatonin, taurine, magnesium, l-theanine, gaba - they help a bit but I need something more powerful clonazepam - was on this years ago and had withdrawal lasted for months if not years. Don't like the idea of starting it again. I'm sure i'm forgetting a few... so what other options do I have for inducing deep sleep?
