    I have had insomnia for over 2 years now, my former doctor had me on 5 powerful medications, 3 of them for sleep, they were 3-350mg. soma, 2mg. xanax. 1-10mg. ambien all taken at night. Why was I on these 5 powerful drugs. He said I had fibromyalgia. He had been my doctor for 20 years, I was on these drugs 17 years, well he got busted and was sent to prison, he had 3 states on thes drugs. I was pretty stupid about drugs, I thought my doctor prescribed them they were o.k. Wow was I wrong, couldnt get any refills, had to go cold turkey, almost died. Looked each drug up on computer, got the shock of my life, how could he do this to me and thousands more. Detoxing was the worst thing I had ever been through, insomnia came immediately, tried everything,,I dont think the group can come up with something I havent tried but I am hoping. By the way I did not have fibromyalgia., Sorry for the long post.

    Hi Daisy!

    Sorry to hear about your experience but I’m encouraged to see you on this forum asking for ideas on overcoming insomnia. Can you describe what your sleep is like at the current time — what is an average night like? Are you currently experimenting with CBT-I techniques? If so, are you having any difficulties understanding or implementing these methods?
