i have sufferd from lack of sleep for twenty years,the doctors used to give me dreadful pills that ended up down the loo, weladorm filled me with wind, anything with antihystimine in it had the opp effect made me wide awake, they gave me anatriptilin once - i gave them hell, they were nasty, i slept on them for two nights but did not feel good in the day, like a zombie. the next thing was zopiclone about three years ago and great - they were perfect - i woke in the morning as fresh as a daisy. after a time i had to take two 7.5mil - the doc was ok about it as he understood my problem. i moved house and my new doctor let me have two a night as he had read all my notes and agreed. we moved again and i have a new doctor who has instructed i only get one a night and have to only get 14 nights at one time. so i take two at night as one is a waste of time with no effect, and spend the next two weeks without sleep. they try to tell me i am depressed, i am not depressed. They gave me some dreadfull pills to take which went down the loo, why can they not leave me as i was? now i am suffering more than ever. ps. i did purchase a pack from the internet, cost a fortune. at one point i got a private prescription and the chemist charged me £4.28 for 28, when i get my two weeks worth off the doc i pay £6 odd for 14. i think it is time the pills were licenced for two a night and not one, and the doc should listen to us and not play god. i was given a sleep diary can you believe, waste of time.
