This happened to me with trazedone. No fun. Sometimes I use benadryl just to take the edge off, but there's a good chance you wont really feel it if you've been on heavier meds.For a little while, I was taking sleeping pills pretty comfortably. Then I found they actually gave me intensely vivid nightmares. There was one week where every morning I woke up freezing and covered in sweat. Plus the other side effects aren't fun, so, no but thank you.
Damn, thats quite a messed up reaction - I always thought it was a very safe drug. I'm sorry you had such a bad experience with it.I've tried melatonin, some of my friends take it and it works for them, but when I tried it, first of all it knocked me out for about half an hour and then I woke up with the horrible panicky feeling that my skin was crawling :um and I had to distract myself until the pill wore off.
