    I am so sleep deprived its making me a little nuts. I have had insomnia forever and have done it all. Everything but Xyrem. I am now falling asleep during the day like a truck hits me and knocks me down but even that sleep is not long and iam not fully under. I haven't slept more then 2 hours at a time in several years.
    my pain is worse, my brain is toast and I honestly feel that I won't be here much longer if I don't sleep. afraid my heart is just going to give up.
    I ve been in contact with the very nice helpful people at Xyrem . They have give me names of doctors who prescribe near me but they are far and few between and interestingly enough, when I look them up the majority have the worst reviews and health grades I ve ever seen. I already feel abused my doctors and am losing the strength to deal with a series of more terrible doc's.
    wondering if anyone who is on it saw someone in California they could recommend . I would also like to share what there experience was getting this prescribed. REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR THOUGHTS AND ADVICE!!! thank you and blessings!

    I think GHB has an bad reputation which doesn't seem to be deserved. I would like to see more knowledgeable people chime in, but every study I find is very positive. Unlike with say Ambien or Benzos you are actually asleep with GHB-induced sleep. As in you get REM-sleep and you feel rested the next day.

    I think the problem comes not from the effect (it's great), but rather from the potential of abuse. I can definitively be addictive to some people and it got a lot of bad press for being used in some rape cases in the 90's. Having something nick named the "date-rape" drug will make doctors stop prescribing it real quick no matter how good it is.
