  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • This drug does not help a person with social anxiety and or panic disorder. I was tired for the first couple of days but couldn't sleep due to restless leg. Now, after three weeks of taking it, I'm up til 2am. Does not help me sleep. I feel restless and tired/awake.

    The FDA has approved Ambien (Zolpidem) as an off label treatment for restless leg syndrome. Ambien is a sedative and is used to help you sleep.

    A word of caution: Although zolpidem is used as an off label treatment for restless leg, sometimes it will make little difference, and sometimes it can make it worse (this is rare though). Give it a shot. Hope you get some restful sleep.

    I sometimes get restless leg, the only thing that helps me (oddly enough) is to sleep with my feet uncovered. I don't know why this works, but it does for me.

    To the comment: "I have been suffering from moderate abdominal pain and I feel really disconnected from reality and society."

    What medications are you taking? Are you currently under psychiatric care? Do you take opioid medications?

    There are countless reasons that could cause abdominal pain and "sensations of disconnectedness with reality". Starting an anti-depressant, starting pain management using opioid medication, and drug interactions. Additionally if you have been diagnosed with depression, mania, schizophrenia, or are experiencing an acute dissociative episode, the abdominal pain may be a psychosomatic expression of the disorder. I am not saying that any of these apply to you, I am simply pointing out that more information is necessary to accurately explain your symptoms, and to point out that any number of factors may cause them.

    I would suggest that you see your doctor. If (and I stress the word "if") your doctor refers you to a psychiatrist, don't be afraid, and don't feel embarrassed (you don't have to disclose to anyone that you are receiving mental health treatment). Our brains interpret the world around us, and we react based upon what the brain tells us. Seeing a psychiatrist does not diminish you, and can have a positive effect on bettering your life.
