It's like they lose there effect overnight. I remember taking Ativan the first few times and .5 MG's would put me to sleep! No I'm on 1mg of clonazepam and I don't feel any relief anymore. Totally have got use to it. I tried taking 1.5mgs to see if thathelped and even upping the dose sis nothing.. not a good sign and needing more treatmentent options. Haven't had luck with the ssri's so

Have you had mirtazapine? That helps with sleep.

Sleeping tablets or benzodiazepines are for short term use only. I take a couple per month.
