> > Just tried Lunesta.... I've had chronic insomnia for over three years. My sleep neurologist used to prescribe Klonapin (2mg) and Seroquel 100mg. Worked beautifully 99% of time. I even cut myself back to 1mg of Klonapin. Sleep neurologist has moved out of state. I'm left with a psychiatrist who refuses to prescribe Klonapin for me. Now I can't sleep on just the Seroquel. I'm EXHAUSTED, extremely irritable. I've been following all the recommended sleep hygiene methods, cut out caffeine and white sugar. NOTHING WORKS!!! I do yoga every night. I stretch, I meditate. I exercise and walk during the day. I'm so fed up. I can't fall asleep.. I wake up too early. Can't fall back to sleep. Without the Klonapin, I toss and turn so much, my husband now sleeps on the couch. I'm at wits end. Tried Lunesta 2mg last night and I fell right to sleep but I was up after sleeping only 4 hours. Had strange dreams that seemed to keep my mind constantly active. It was a strange half-awake, half-asleep state of dreaming. Lunesta was less helpful than Seroquel. Has anyone tried 4mg? I'm thinking of doubling my dose...or going on the black market to get klonapin!!!!
> How long was your taper off of the Klonopin? Could you still be suffering Klonopin withdrawal?

I kind of went off Klonapin cold turkey about a week and a half ago. Could that be the culprit? Is my mind going and going due to withdrawal maybe?
