mamadweezil Posted June 18, 2012 Share Posted June 18, 2012 hi, i have permanent insomnia. without all my seroquel and remeron i won't sleep a wink. very few things work. that said, i'm stuck on trying to help my friend. he takes effexor for his moods and anxiety and i notice his anxiety is still quite high (he dumps his breath, shakes, has restless legs, gasps on occassion) but he also has impossible insomnia. if he takes some kind of over the counter sleep aid he might get some sleep. he's tried tryptophan, and melatonin with little success. like me, he waits to get drowsy and then never ends up falling asleep. i've suggested that he take his meds and then go to bed at a set time, instead of waiting to be drowsy. i'm not sure what else to suggest since i have no luck myself. he can't afford much, he's on welfare so prescriptions are covered up here in canada. thanks.
