Stopping Benzos

Posted by tonyz on April 30, 2010, at 20:08:30

I hope you guys don't mind been asking a lot of questions here. It's been since January that I've had a decent nights sleep. I know I am experiencing severe depression a lot of memory and concentration issues. My doc has changed my medications I am on amitriptyline but only 75mg now for one day - tomorrow it will go up to 100mg.

I am very concerned at having taking clonazepam about 1 mg regularly during this time. I read somewhere that it is more psychologically addicting than physically addicting. Additionally I'm taking 30mg of restoril. I generally try the restoril first and if nothing happens in an hour I take the clonazepam. Restoril was added about 8 days ago.

Someone suggested time release melatonin and I will be trying that tonight.

I need a path to be benzo free that will allow me to get a restorative nights sleep. Any suggestions welcome. I also exercise almost every day.

To summarize
current meds
1mg clonazepam
30mg restoril
600mg lithium
75mg amitriptyline

Thanks in advance
