Hi I have been suffering from insomnia for the last 3-4 years. I have tried amitriptyline, melatonin, magnesium, zopiclone, zolpidem, oxazepam and diazepam. I've ended up using zopiclone the last year or so. I start with 3.75 mg for 4-6 weeks, then I use 7.5 mg for 2-3 months before I go cold turkey for 7-10 days. Not an ideal solution, but it has been working alright. I've never used more than 7.5 mg to get to sleep. Because of some new driving rules I may have to stop using zopiclone. Either stop taking it at all, or use 3.75 mg max. I use oxycodone for pain in the evenings. Apparently that is why I can't use 7.5 mg zopiclone any longer :/ My doc gave me Seroquel (Quetiapine, 25 mg) a few days ago. I tried it two nights. Made me sleep in 30 minutes. The problem was the morning after. My mouth was dry as Sahara. I felt disorientated, and I also felt even more physical reduced than I usually do. I'm doing shit lately, so I'm not 100% sure about my last point about muscle weakness. Can I expect the side effects to taper off? I was given Seroquel because of new driving regulations, but I can't understand why this drug is not on the same list as zopiclone. Perhaps the side effects go away if I continue, but I wasn't fit to drive at all the two mornings after I've tried it. Can anyone offer me some advice? I'm open to trying other sleep meds. I think benzos are out of the question since I am also taking oxycodone. Amitriptyline made me feel sleepy 24/7. Melatonin doesn't work. I don't feel very good about quetiapine. I found a meta study saying that it should be avoided for insomnia because of potential side effects. The study concluded that we don't know enough about this drug to recommend it for chronic insomnia.
