yea from what ive head, it appears to be a normal thing, this is my 1st night that i cant sleep after 13 days off pills....... hate it..., oh well, sleep will come... good luck to you
Yes unfortunately it is very normal. Try taking 2 Benadryl. Also Valerian root and Melatonin help a little. No sleep can be one of the turfiest parts of detox. It can take some time but it will eventually come.
Also try a hot bath or shower.
sad as it may sound it's good to know I'm not alone. going to give this sleep thing another try. good night
thanks everybody for great advice. i'm so sore but my brain is on overdrive. i just want to go to sleep and wake up when all of this is over. guess it's like paying my dues, ugh
Well, the heavy-duty attack is Seroquel or Zyprexa, 7 days max, but if you can get Klonopin or Valium for 10 days, that's the ticket, unless you have a big tolerance to benzos ...
The sleep thing is probably the worst w/d thing -- melatonin is beneficial (go to 6-9mg as necessary -- it's OTC) ... depends on whether you've abused benzos in the past. If not, they can really help, but hold it to 10 days max.
Have you tried hypnotizing your cat with a Filet 'O Fish on 20-lb. test-line? It's unusual, but you'll both have fun. Just something a little different ...
