Hey there, I'm new here, I've only posted once over on the chronic pain board. I use to suffer horribly from panic/anxiety/depression until I started taking Paxil. Since then, I've harldy had any panic problems. I also have fibromyalgia and am in the middle of the worst pain flare up I've ever had. I've been taking pain meds non stop for about 4 months now. Last night I tried a Rozerum (sleeping pill) and today I am so dizzy!! I'm dizzy, foggy headed, and just wierd feeling. It's really freaking me out. I'm giong right back into my "panic thoughts" I keep thinking, "I must be dying or something!" I'm sure it's just the sleeping pill, but I'm just really scared now! Any words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks

Hi there and welcome to this forum
I have had sleeping pills have the dang same effect on me as I am on some heavy pain meds for Crohns and PG as well as other illnesses I have
I agree with you I believe it is just the pill
Have you ever tried "Hot Milk" before going to bed ..........I am a drinker of this every night
you can put it in the nuker for 2or 220 depending on your nuker and add just a wee bit of hot chocolate to it or cinnamon on the top for a nice tase
It has a natual ingredient that when heated is activated
Same reason we heat our babies milk ......to calm as well as feed them ya know
I know you will be fine just try not to keep thinking about it and perhaps find a cozy spot and just sit and breathe deeply knowing you will be okay
I would suggest trying something else to sleep though and not take that if you really believe it is the s/p
Of course let your doc know what it made you feel like and that you cannot take it
Post and let us know how you make out okay
We are always here for ya

take a quarter of the sleeping pill, a pillcutter from a pharmacy can be useful and you should soon get used to it

Thanks so much for your replies. I'm sure it was just a reaction to the sleeping pill. I will definately try the warm milk. I get so sick of taking drugs all the time. I'm doing much better now. The dizziness has worn off. For some reason dizziness always freaks me out!! I'm glad to have found this board. Everyone here sounds very helpful and supportive.
