All of the meds tried get me to sleep, then I'm up pandering around the house for an hour - tired of no, still cant sleep. seroquel wotked well till I had some kind of super nasty tardive reastive. I am NOT a drug seeker, but when I do need help, temazepam and nitrazepam got me to sleep and kept me asleep. Felt wonderfully rested in AM

Did you see the list of meds I've tried before?
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 2 years ago

Thanks for your reply. I did see the list. Is there a specific question that you have? Wondering what medicine may work best for insomnia in light of what you have already tried?

I don't know what else is available. I'mwelll aware theres reluctance to prescribe scheduled meds, but I'm at wits end this is literally making me old fast. ambiean and the like dont do aything to me, at all
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 2 years ago

I would be happy to suggest some alternatives to what you have already tried if this would be of interest to you. We cannot prescribe on this site and controlled medications cannot be prescribed anywhere on the internet (legally).

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
