I have suffered for many years not being able to sleep. For several years now I have been taking either valium, clonazapam, diazapam, usually 30-40mg. It was suggested to me by my daughter who takes care of autistic children, that I should try Melotin, but I am on other medication, like anti-depressants and seroquel to name the main ones, and I am worried that I will either have a seizure (again), or go through the withdrawls.
Any opinions would help, or if you have changed over to natural medicial sleep aids, please let me know how it worked out for you.
I can only suggest if you come off any meds to do so under your doctors supervision and instruction. I quit a med once abruptly and it turned out to not be a wise choice. I take Melatonin, but only a small dose as anything more than 1.5 mg makes me sleep worse and have bad dreams. Start small to see how much you can tolerate and slowly increase. Has a sleep study been done to try to identify the cause of your sleep issues?
