If a thread exists that already covers the subject of Insomnia, someone please tell me where to go?:Retro smile: My main symptom is Insomnia. My symptoms came on very gradually over a number of years. I have had a number of diagnoses, and have endured many treatments for the condition. Including, antidepressants, Parkinsons medication, Ambien, Xyrem, Lunesta, and every benzodiazepine in existence. As the fall out of Michael Jacksons death escalated my doctor refused to continue my Halcion (Triazolam), one of the few medications that actually worked for me. I had to go under medical supervision to safely manage removal. I strongly advise against this experience. Experiencing with drawl while having CFS is a horrific experience, but worst of all I have no effective remedy anymore, and after four months I still havent recovered. I am wondering about others observations and experiences, maybe the discussion would help others too. I read references CFS familiar doctors make that treating the underlying immune disorder will restore sleep patterns; I am wondering if anyone here has experienced that recovery? Severe Insomnia should be avoided, it leads to hallucinations; and then the butterfly bus comes.
