Peter, I thought you said you weren't emotionally feeling down and depressed--are you expecting some kind of euphoria or a really energetic up feeling?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

no doc not depressed but sleepy , fatigue like , spaced out a bit like im on somewhere on the inbetween get up and go and ;pulled back to relax at the same time , just thought id be more stable after the 3 wks but it must take longer i guess

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
Why are you taking the sleepers now--I mean it sounds as though you might not need as many?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

if i dont im way way more unstable doc and if i go longer with out it then when i do ive over done it so much that it takes more to get me back again, its like the meds have still loads to do to give me a chance to function all day without the sleepers

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK--just checking since it could be that you are actually getting to the point of not needing the sleepers. You see, what you're describing now sounds like the downside effects of the sleepers
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

ok doc well ill give it a few more days try to keep to the 3 a day and see how i am, if no improvement ill cut down to 2 and a half if you think thats ok and see if i can do it from there

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
That sounds like a good idea Peter--as the meds stabilize you you may be taking the sleepers for a reason that may not be there any more--I know you worry about what might happen, but I think it's time to start working on getting off the sleepers. Stay well, my friend and let me know how you do
