- Support group for people who have Insomnia
Hi Everyone - I am desperate to talk to people who suffer like me. I have RLS and insomnia. I take Mirapex, Gabapenten, and have tried about 6 different kinds of sleeping pills and for the last 3 years I sleep about 3 to 4 hours a night. I can fall asleep but I cannot stay asleep. I am so sick of living like this. Nothing helps to keep me asleep. I go to bed at the same time every night (9) and around 1:00am, I wake up to go to the bathroom then the nightmare begins.... I cannot go back to sleep. I feel tired, depressed, alone and desperate for help. I have been to the Mayo Clinic twice and to numerous doctors and although they try, I can't get better. I exercise everyday for 1 - 1&1/2 hrs a day. I do not have any other health issues at all. This is a real big problem and a awful way to live. I just feel so alone and sad.

Any advice for a taper withdrawal, im currently going through 130mg per day.:(
Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

- Severe insomnia and anxiety/panic attacks
I was prescribed Augmentin for a sore throat. The doctor did not do a Strep test to determine if I had a bacterial or viral infection. She must have assumed bacterial. For three nights I had severe insomnia. I was only able to get about 2 hours sleep every night during a maximum of about 20 minutes per sleep session. I didn't realize that Augmentin was the cause. My sleeping environment was perfect for sleep except I would lie there awake. Eventually panic would set in if some nasal congestion or stoppage manifested itself. I'd jump out of bed and turn on the light. If I could not get relief, I found myself walking through my darkened house turning on lights. But nothing seemed to calm the situation. I also had severe panic or anxiety attacks. I had to escape darkened rooms at night. I could not sit still throughout the day. I felt jumpy, terribly fatigued, unable to focus, and anxious. I stopped taking Augmentin and I finally was able to get almost seven hours of sleep although I did wake four times during that period due to congestion. After some local remedies, I was able to fall back asleep. The anxiety attacks have stopped. I can now focus again and have some energy to read or do work. For completeness, I took Augmentin three years as prescribed by my oral surgeon when he had to remove a tooth. I did not experience insomnia or anxiety/panic attacks on that occasion.
- Diphenhydramine and mental acuity
For at least 10 years, I have taken diphenhydramine 50 mg. at bedtime for insomnia and allergies. The results have been that I sleep well with no hangover or any cognitive impairment. If I experience vertigo from allergies, I may take an additional 50 mg. but never exceeding 100 mg in a 24 hour period.
After reading the report regarding an Alzheimer's study finding that after taking as little as 4mg diphenhydramine daily for more than 3 years, dementia rates were high.
I stopped the diphenhydramine one night. I experienced symptoms of deep brain pulsating pain and severe insomnia. After 4 hours, I took 50 mg diphenhydramine and slept very well. The next night I took 37.5 mg. diphenhydramine, slept very well. However, some of my tasks require layers of mental challenges in which I became slower.
My question is how did the study recipients obtain 4 mg doses of diphenhydramine when the standard over-the-counter (OTC) availability in tablets is 25 mg? How reliable is the information submitted from the study subjects? What manufacturer's diphendramine was used, or were there several?
I felt sharper mentally when on 50 mg daily than so far on 37.5 mg.
- Dymista gave me insomnia and nightmares
I have been taking Dymista for two weeks and it is fantastic for clearing up allergy symptoms. However, for the past two weeks I have had an extremely hard time trying to fall asleep; it is like I have insomnia. When I do fall asleep which usually last around an hour or so either day or night I have very vivid nightmares
- 13yr old autistic daughter diagnosed with cerebral palsy after taking seroquel
My beautiful 13yrold daughter who was diagnosed with Autism at 2 yrs old, never suffered from ANY physical disabilities prior to being put on a very large dose of SEROQUEL at age 11. Within less than a year, she went from running and jumping on her trampoline to being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy!! She now has to be cared for in a facility, relying on being pushed in a wheelchair for outside transfer, and wearing a foam helmet to protect her from injury during her daily falls. Two separate neurologists label her with cerebral palsy and will not go any further in diagnosis. Genetic studies show no explanation, and the children's hospital are the only one willing to indicate the possibility of the medications she was put on by a mental health facility as the possible cause. I have long avoided placing her on heavy medications for the 11 years that she was in my care, and this did not occur until she went into her father's care temporarily while I had major surgery. Over a period of6-8 months, she began to develop a limp and became so unsteady she could not walk 5 feet without bumping into things and falling. When I cared for her again and saw the medications she had been placed on, I am not ashamed to say I not only researched them, but took one of the Seroquel to see how it affected ME! I was over 80 pounds heavier than my daughter at the time, yet found myself completely incapacitated for almost 48hrs!! I immediately took her to the children's hospital in our area where she was hospitalized for over a week and treated by a TEAM of physicians ranging from Orthopedics to Neurologists. From CT Scans, complete blood work, MRIS, etc., nothing could explain any cause for her issues except "the possibility of the medications". They began to lower her Seroquel dose then sent her to the state mental hospital 4 hours away where she stayed for 2 months while undergoing the genetic studies and another neurologist who continued to lower the Seroquel and completely take her off it. My beautiful girl is now left with a lifetime physical disability.
- Took buspirone once and got a blister
Took Buspirone 5mg once and a few minutes later felt a bubble on my lip. The next morning I check and sure enough it's a blister on my top lip. Called a nurse and she said I had an allergic reaction.

From this study (11 months ago):
I have lost almost all memory while on these medications and I cannot remember that part of my life while on them I can only remember bits and pieces. I was on all this medication due to my drug induced psycosis and to stop my paranoia and wanting to harm myself and others. This was over 12 years ago and approx 4 years I have lost but happy to say that tis present day life is great.
