Halcion addiction and withdrawal

Posted by shelley on January 2, 1999, at 20:05:31

I'm reposting this message in hopes that the New Year will bring me some tips from others who've been through similar experiences.
Thanks all! I am trying to stop taking Halcion because it seems to serve no purpose,
in that it does not help me sleep. Yet, if I do not take it at night I am in agony the next
day, called "withdrawing". I have the help of a good doc who is helping me to taper
off over a period of months. She said "success" is more important than "time" and that
backtracking is okay. She says the drug may be contributing to daytime "dysfunction";
ie, anxiety, early morning lethargy, etc. She doesn't want to start me on any new
anti-depressant/mood stabilizer until we see how this goes for awhile as long as I'm
pretty well stabilized. Thanks for the input. I look forward to more.
