Thought I'd check in on some of you all who have shared about insomnia and trying different medications or other strategies to deal with it. It would be great to hear an update.

@pastore – how did your taper end up for the lorazepam (Ativan)? Are you taking something else now for sleep, or using another tactic?

@sleepy0 – I noted that you talked about trying clonazepam and your doctor telling you about a trial and error process with finding the right medication for insomnia. Have you found something that is working effectively for getting some more sleep?

@rachel123 – you mentioned going for an overnight sleep study. How did that go?

@kdel – what have you tried lately for your sleep? Is anything working well for you?

My last appointment the doctor said to take a Cloneazepam when I go to bed and another when I wake up which is usually 2-3 hours, then restless the rest of the night. He said to try this for six months and if it does not work we will try something different.
