I have a Rx for Clonazepam nightly for panic and it really helps. It is a serious medication and I have quarterly appointments to evaluate my situation. I reduced a lot of my medication when I got a Service Dog. She wakes me up when I have nightmares. I get up and 'break the cycle' to be able to go back to sleep. Training to make waking me up a 'task' and not just a random act was difficult, but worth it. I have had her over three years now.
Now I have more 'bad dreams' that I wake up from because they aren't 'right'. I have a lot fewer screaming, sweating nightmares - I am not so afraid to put my head on the pillow! I sleep about 6 hours before I start being awake or half-asleep and needing to stop thinking about the dreams and just lie still until the alarm goes off.
I think my bad dreams would be nightmares to most people.

Welcome GABBYABBY. Someone recently had some issues with that same prescription. I too have slept not very deeply the last few nights. Hope I can sort that out also. Good luck.

Hello team - I'm new here, but when I saw the name I just knew it was for me! I am starting to go through the "change" - and I think it is messing up my sleep big time. I was using things like melatonin or valerian root, and not getting much relief, went to my dr, who said lots of people get relief with trazodone. I did, but you get used to the dose, and then it doesn't work as well. I now weaned myself off, just went through my 2nd night with no meds - I am not falling into a deep sleep - it's very light - then I wake and lay there until I can fall back into that. This does NOT help when you are trying to lose weight!!!

All the time. Plus I have nightmares. I sweat like a pig. Don't feel rest when I wake up and never want to wake up.

And now a major event happened, again, so I am back not seeping until like 4am.....so stressed out. So bad falling asleep,so late. but I can't fall asleep, even with my prescribed medication

Help!!!!! emoticon . I need to go back to regular hours

Ive come to the conclusion that I am half asleep. I kind of sleep very lightly and I come out of sleep and drift back into it slightly.... This is usually when Im the most exhausted. Anyone else feel Iike that?
