Well, the dreaded thing has happened--I've had terrible stress in the past couple of weeks and Lunesta has stopped working for me. I see my pdoc this week and I'm wondering what to ask her for to help me sleep.
What I've tried:
Ambien for 2 and a half years--didn't work so well after six months, eventually stopped working at all.
Remeron--even at the smallest dose, can't wake up, makes me terribly hung over and weepy the next day. Also can't focus on anything but food.
Xanax XR--I have only taken this for the past few nights. It's worked off and on, but I don't have a scrip for it. A friend who wasn't using it gave it to me.
OTC products like Unisom and Sleepinal. Basically they have the same effect as Remeron. Not worth being useless and depressed the next day.
