> > As best I can tell, we have just scratched the surface on the so-called "side effects" of the various psychiatric and sleep drugs. If you want a wake-up call, read Breggin and Cohen's book, "Your Drug May Be Your Problem" and Glenmullen's "Prozac Backlash." Over the past 7 years I have taken at least 16 different prescription drugs for depression and insomnia (that I remember) and I am absolutely convinced that they created much bigger problems (for me) than they solved. But I believe it is a Catch-22, because once your brain chemistry has made adjustments to the drugs, those changes may be permanent and going back to "the old days" may be impossible. I have tried EVERY method suggested in the insomnia books to get off Ambien and have failed. The only one I didn't try was staying up until 4 a.m. and sleeping about 2 hours every night for a week, followed by 3 a.m. for a week, etc., until you sleep through the night. Great plan if you have won the lottery and don't need to be able to tie your shoe laces the next day!
> You may want to go to the post I just placed on the Psycho-Babble Psychology board. The post subject is "Insomnia study."
I hate to be stupid, but how do you get to your new thread, Insomnia Study? Are the more recent responses from Marsha on this thread also there? I guess I don't know the "ins and outs" of Psycho-Babble yet.
