I’m currently going through a phase where I just cannot sleep. Be it with, sleeping tablets (Zopiclone), benzodiazepines (Lexomil, Xanax) or a tablet we call in France; Tercian which is an antipsychotic with a tendancy to reduce anxiety and send you to sleep.
I’m just going to go over my psychological history in a flash.
I was victim of an armed robbery at gunpoint for my mobile phone whilst getting the tram. From that day I’ve been on Paroxetine (Paxil, Dexorat etc). Brilliant for social anxiety etc. But god all mighty the withdrawal is 100x worse that the initial problem (but that’s another story).
Another weird time of the year came around and I got put on Olanzapine (Zyprexa) needless to stay that it cured obviously « the problem » which I’m sure could have been corrected with CBT but yet again that’s another story. I just had a psychiatrist that had me try all the tablets known in that domain.
So to put things into perspective I just lay in bed, wait, and watch the clock go by. I’m starting to believe that I have got some sort of psychological sleep disorder and that I’m scared of falling asleep or something. I have developed an anxiety it seems at bedtime when I need to close my eyes, I’m just scared of how long it’s going to take etc. Urgh sick of it.
Has anyone else ever gone through this bearing in mind it’s been at least two months and the Zopiclone 2x7,5mg (I know I should be taking) doesn’t even work anymore.
I do a lot of research about psychotic drugs, I love it, a bit parodoxal for someone who is the pharmaceutical company’s laboratory « human ».
Many ready might think I might abuse drugs; I don’t. They’ve just been kept in my cupboard as I was always given too much
Does anyone have an experience they could share?
