Anxiety Medicine - Sleep Medicines, What Can I Do?

Alexander Says:

Hi, I am long time anxiety patient - i've been on paxil, buspar, lexapro, zanaflex, remrom, flexiril, tricyciclants, trazodone - you name it. Also, with this I have had bad insomnia. I will not sleep for nights at a time, and it is affecting my work as well as my social life. I have tried (for sleep) Lunesta 2-4mg, Ambien 20mg, Sonata 40mg, and Prosom 2mg. I also aso tried restriol. For anxiety I have been on Ativan, Valium, Klonopin, and Versed. At the time, none of the night medicines work, I will even combine them. My anxiety (which is so common in my family) keeps me up.

The problem is, they tend to either prescribe one (sleep medicine) or the other (anxiety). I have insurance, and would be willing to see a doctor. MY GAD is so awful lately, it's maybe Er TIME.

So, does anyone have any recommendations? The sleep medicine helps (the non-z class) it makes me not have night terrors, insomnia and grogginess. However, it makes me tempted to take the benzos when I have my anxiety attacks (which I have had since having cancer). I try to talk to doctors, but hardly will they listen. Insisting that z class is enough and giving me large (20-30mg) doses of ambien. I need a doctor who will listen, asap.
