    (Accidently clicked post, I'm on phone) anyway I finished the pack and I'm back to another sleepless night. I just can't stop thinking, every little problem has to be remembered now and I have to go through every little thing about it. I got to a point were I couldnt close at all and now I'm scared and worried about 'things' showing up at my door, you know the horror movie stuff and I havent watched a horror movie in months. I don't know anymore, hearing the slightest noise makes me thing of a million things. Might go doctor and see if he can give me sleeping pills, i don't wanna be on meds and he doesn't want me to either but it could be the right thing to do now.

      Hi, I can really sympathise with you ,I dont know the last time I had any proper sleep, my doc will not give me anything, ive tried kalms a couple of times but they didnt work for me, I am like you I really dont want to be on any more meds but if they help well why not even just for a short while, take care smile x

      Kalms are US better if you drank chamocile tea with honey sainsbury's do an excellant one that I use for winding down on a night but blow me I still need the zopiclone there is doxcilamine available from Amazon but go steady with these as they are strong otherwise the herb Valerian does help but after a month of use the dose needs upping

    In all honesty gamefreak I would say your doctor is a wise person I started on night sedation while I was about 16 and then only because my mother got them for me from the doctor (I would love to know what she actually said to get them as it still gives me the creeps as what he gave me were nembutal a very strong sleeper then) I am not on those type anymore just on what they loosely call the 'Z' drugs zopiclone being the favourite and used normaly for short periods is this what you were given?

      He gave me normison, apparently it's not as addictive as the others but doesn't mean it isn't though it was good and worked really well for me and no side effects, I don't think anyway

      whoa did he actually say they are not as adictive as others he has given you Temazepam a very strong sleeper and in the form he has given you it is so widely sought after by drug abusers....take it from me use them wisely all sleeping drugs may not be addictive but they are habit forming and very easy to get into I would have advised a herbal remedy far safer.

    sleeping pills can be addictive so use them sparingly.
