    No it is not easy. I reduced my intake slowly by cutting the pill in to smaller pieces and then making the gaps between taking wider. 4 months later I am off the drug but my sleep problems are back to normal and I have not lost the weight I put on. Sorry I cannot give you any good news

    I cannot say I was ever anxious. My problem was and still is the ability to drop off to sleep and stay asleep for 7 hours without waking up. On a good night I manage 6 but in bits
