Hi everyone.

I'm already on antidepressants and sleeping tablets but my insomnia has gone insane.

Any tips or prescriptions that worked for you?

I find that a combination of cannabis,alcohol and my meds taken at night are enough to send me to sleep without any problems.
Sleeping tablets stop working eventually.
I think escitalopram helps.

between my pdoc and GP i get Zopicline 3.75 although i am able to double dose to the 7mg and Promethazine.

The Zipiclone helps me to fall asleep, although doesn't keep me asleep. The Promethazine really helps that.

The combination of the two allows me at times to get a good nights sleep. Some GP's are reluctant to perscribe Promethazine so I hope you have an understanding GP.

I hope you manage to find a combination that helps you.

I am currently suffering from insomnia...

My solution is simple... stay up all night and day, and by the second night you will be so exhausted that you will sleep naturally. Actually this has more to do with circadian rythms and notwhat!!!

I think my insomnia is due to stress. Once the stressful event has passed I will be ok, and hopefully back to normal!
