My stupid neurologist STILL hasn't gotten back with me nor has he called me in anything to replace the Restoril. I'm ready to find a new one, but I think I've been through the entire phone book of them already. Why are there so few neuros? I ended up calling my PCP again and he's giving me samples of Sonata? I think is what they're called. The Lunesta he gave me to try just keeps me up all night. But that's better than the horrid leg cramps. So, here I go to the clinic once again to pick up some samples. I'm so tired of this routine, I'm tired of hurting all the time and I'm just plain old tired. How's that?

Went and got the Sonata last night and OH MY GOSH.... I fell asleep so fast. I usually can read in bed for at least 30 min to an hour before I can fall asleep. I couldn't keep my eyes open for 5 min. It was great. Now if I can get a perscription for it....

Thanks for the support!

Hi Chelle,
Just curious why you need the Sonata if you can fall asleep by reading w/i 45 mins? i would loooove for that to be the case for me. It can take hours for me to fall asleep and since I can't stand laying there and thinking, I just watch TV or read til the wee hours. I only mention it because all of these meds can weaken your immune system over time so the fewer the better. :)
