I can't get any of my meds anymore, including the ritalin...because i can't go in to see the doctor without insurance. So i did a bad thing, i accepted some sleeping pills that someone in my family was not using. It is the one called Rozerem.
I just want to say they are awesome and work almost as good as Xyrem for me. They are supposed to be prescribed for insomnia, but most people blogging or writing comments about the drug do not like it. Lots of them say it is keeping them in a 1/2 sleep state, or giving them nightmares, or making them groggy the next day. Perhaps because it should be prescribed for narcolepsy instead. I hardly dream at all on them, and they put me to sleep for almost 4 hrs. and i am not groggy the next day. If i could take 2 per night, it would be basically like xyrem for me.
I only had 12 of them though, and took one per night...Too bad i only have one left...boohoo.
