I was taking 5 mg Clonazapam for 7 years to help with sleep issues. It began to create other issues for me so I decided it was time to come off of it. I never realized it would be such a difficult process. I have been off Clonazapam for 7 months. However I have periodic bouts of insomnia and slight nausea. My doctor has prescribed 20 mg Amitriptyline to help me sleep but the dosage was far too strong so he cut it down to 10 mg. I am determined not to take the 10 mg dose unless I absolutely need it. My doctor said it was alright to use it on an "as needed" basis. My fear is that I will become dependant on it. Has anyone had a similar expereince and how did you deal with insomnia?
