I started taking 7.5mg in November and got a decent sleep for the first time in years. Started taking x2 7.5mg per night to help through a tough period at work. This caused me some anxiety in the day and nulled the effect if the Sertraline I am taking. Was gutted to find out I could not take Z long term but I took them for longer than I should to keep myself sane during a stressful time.
I went cold turkey last Wednesday and am now in the depths of withdrawal today being the worst. Sleep has been intermittent, luckily I am not working at the moment so I can keep sleeping all morning.
The anxiety, feeling of indigestion and general feeling of confusion and surreality is awful. Am hoping it will pass soon as I am keen to avoid going back I onto the drug again.
I have colitis which is flaring up too due to the anxiety. Am hoping this will calm when the side effects does down.
Cannot sleep tonight so happy to chat if anyone has any advice x
