I took Melatonin 6mg every night for years to help me sleep and it worked pretty darn well. Then I read a post on this forum that if you take it chronically, your body quits producing it naturally and you grow dependent upon the pills.
So, two nights ago, I stopped the Melatonin and took 1 mg of Klonipin instead, albeit at 6 am, and finally fell asleep and slept well waking at 2 pm.
Last night, I couldn’t sleep again, only this time I took 1 mg of Klonipin at 1030 pm and woke at 800 am getting good sleep.
Tonight, I tried sleeping without the Klonipin with no luck. I went to bed at 1030 pm and by 12 midnight still wide awake. At that point, I took 0.5 mg of Klonipin. It is now 250 am and I’m still awake despite lying quietly in bed for hours. I tried reading. No help. I don’t know what to do.
