    Re: Scared to take my first dose :-(

    I hope it is good for you x

    No I won't be trying anything else, I was given it for insomnia but tbh I'm quite scared of meds so maybe I've sort if made it not work if you know what I mean!

    Anyway keep me updated with your progress and I'll do the same! Xx

    Have you tried everything herbal?

    I like falling asleep to hypnotherapy relaxation apps xx

    Re: Scared to take my first dose :-(

    I did try herbal stuff when this all started in Feb. I also listened to Paul McKenna Plus a whole host of stuff from a hypnotherapist I was seeing.

    Last night I did some yoga stretches which were good. I didn't read in bed which I normally do so I don't know if that made a difference or if the CBT I've just started is working. Or if it was a one off I don't know but whatever it takes I'll try it!

    Try having an Epsom salt bath before bed.. Stay in for at least 15 mins .. Sip a glass of cold water while you're in there as it can dehydrate you.

    It's meant to be very good for sleep. Always makes me tired afterwards x

    Hi yes have tried Epsom salts too.

    Slept well last night after some yoga stretches, hopefully it will continue!

    How are you feeling today? X

    Ah I'm pleased you're feeling a bit better!

    I slept well but woke up a little anxious as I had my CBT session today, and although I always feel better after it I still worry about going!

    I'm fairly calm now though and the Trazodone startup headache seems to have almost gone too.

    Can't believe the difference it's made in just 3 doses! Xx

    Great, seems like it will really suit you! Funny how things work for some and not others.

    I went back to the doctor this morning to let her know about all my side effects. She said this is really the only way to do it... So a few more weeks of feeling like cr*p....

    So hard! Especially when you have a child to look after! :(

    It really is, isn't it!

    I'm a single mum to a 4 year old little girl & there have been times where I've been quite snappy with her, which I now feel really guilty about :-(

    Do you think this might be the med for me then if I'm feeling like this already?

    Has your Dr suggested anything else? Is it simply for insomnia or do you suffer from depression/anxiety too? Xx

    Re: Scared to take my first dose :-(

    Hi I know the guilt feeling, my son is 10 now so not quite as needy but when he doesn't listen or do as he's told I have to really take stock so as not to lose my rag. It isn't easy especially if you're on your own and going through a hard time!

    You should probably give it a couple of weeks to see if it's still ok for you. I can't remember if I had side effects from day 1 or if they kicked in later but you'll soon know. So far so good though!

    The doctor basically said I have to ride it out. I started with insomnia out of the blue in Feb but I had been having a tough time just beforehand so it was definitely anxiety although I hadn't really realised I was that bad.

    I'm dropping down to 30 tonight, just need to hurry up and get off it and its going to take so long! Dreading more side effects though!

    Hope you have a good sleep and are anxiety free in the morning! Xx

    Oh bless you - I hope you manage to get a good night & feel a little better in the morning.

    I've just popped a pill not long ago and am turning in for the night now. Fingers crossed for a no more panic morning xx
