I have been given a presciption of the dreaded rohypnol, the date rape drug, as i have tried everything. The first time i took it i thought wow im going to get some good sleep tonight. It made me groogy but 2 hours later i still couldnt sleep, it just wouldnt turn the switch off, so i had a small dose of mirtazipine with it and slept great. Mirtazipine was also a new med for me, although i have used it in the past, on its own it makes me abit groggy but doesnt turn the switch off but works well with a benzo. So now what i have up my sleeve is mirtazipine with rohypnol or imovane/zopiclonex2, or i take rohypnol or mirtazipine with a antihistamine so theres about 4 different combo's i use, plus the occassional seroquel. Last night i took 100mg of seroquel and slept 1 hour then added another 50mg and got nowhere and then took 1 imovane and then slept well, so what started as an 8 o'clock bed time turned into a 1am bed time, lol. Im suprised how poorly the seroquel worked although i had a very flat day that day, maybe my body had alot of viral crap floating around stopping me from sleeping.
I have tried all the natural stuff as well and found it was really hit and miss and not that effective for me, then i decided to jump ship and go the drug route, i know without these meds i would be feeling even worse. sleep is my achilles heel, aaarrrrggghhhhh!!!!
