Yeah I just took a 7.5mg. I may take your advice and take just half a pill and see if that helps. If I wake up early I could always take the other half. All I really need is 5hrs sleep and I am OK.

I did take tamazapam for a while during an earlier stage of withdrawal from the zispen (22.5mg - 15mg. That helped slightly but no more than this med. I had no trouble coming off that after over a week of use at 20mg, and slept more naturally afterwards. After a week of sleeping 5 - 6 hrs a night I decided to come off the zispen completely and this is where I am now.

So I hoping I know what to expect, although I would imagine 15mg to nothing is going to be a different kettle of fish.

But the last few days I have been yawning at night so perhaps that is a good sign, although my mind is still on overdrive.

I haven’t experienced the metallic taste that you talk about as of yet so that is good. But once it got to about 9am I noticed I was more anxious than usual, this off coarse could be to do with the lack off zispen, but now I am back to my usual anxiety level.

I think I may just take the tablet tonight and maybe tomorrow, and I will then see if I can sleep without it as I am worried about becoming dependant on another drug. But I think nothing will beat the insomnia of the zispen. While I think some of this is withdrawal I think rebound insomnia and mood (slightly) is the main cause, hopefully it is just rebound!!

I am also on lamictal which I have found activating ever since I started but it does help with my other problems.

This insomnia is reminiscent of when I tried to come of cannabis 3 yrs ago which although I was not a heavy smoker I did have a joint before bed each night. I think it’s in my head about I need a night cap to finish the day off more than anything, but alas the warm milk doesn't work for me.

Sorry if this post is a tad confusing I don't yet know how to quote, is it just a simple case of copy and pasting?

Thanks again your advise has been really helpful and reassuring.
