Chronic Insomnia for Years
by Madelene White
I take over the counter sleep aids, at first I did this to abuse the medication, to help me deal with many losses in my life.
It also let me sleep better.
A few weeks ago I stopped using over the counter sleeping pills and had dreadful insomnia which made me feel mental.
I then started last week and my sleep is fantastic. i don’t take the recommended dosage, I take 150-250 mgs. I do suffer overdose side effects for a few hours and then I can go to sleep. The recommended dose is 50 mg. I don’t wake up drowsy, I feel refreshed.
I hate to say this but I will continue in this way if it means functioning better during the day because of a good nights sleep.
I had gone for treatment to treat a possible drug addiction and was told I don’t have a drug addiction, of course I now believe differently.
Due to unfortunate circumstances I can no longer access drug addiction treatment.
