2 Things in common

Karla, we have a couple of things in common…I’ve been on clonazepam for over a year. I started at 0.5 MG once at night. It seemed to lessen the zings, zaps, and twinges that kept me from sleeping. I did start to sleep better. After about 6 months my Dr. increased the dosage to 1.5 MG once at bedtime. She explained this is a medication that you can become used to. That increased dosage was about 4 months ago and I now fall asleep about an hour after taking it, but am up after about 4 hours. I hate to continue ramping up but everything I’ve read says this is still a very low dose. Haven’t had any other side affects, so for now I’m grateful for the 4 hours of sleep.
Where are you at in Illinois. We are in the minority here.

You have a good, positive attitude. That helps a lot.
Take care, hope you find the right mix of meds.
