#041 – I’m So Tied I Can’t Sleep – Mogadone (Nitazepam)

There is a chance my sleeping issues and insomnia have been cured! Last night I had my first dose of the sleeping medication Mogadone which is a benzodiazepine and it worked wonders. Why wasn’t I introduced to this years ago. I have taken Stilnox, Imovane, Temazapem, Chloral Hydrate, melatonin and natural sleeping aids but nothing has ever knocked me out like Mogadone. I have had sleeping problems since I was a kid and finally there seems to be some hope on the horizon. I’m hoping it doesn’t have much of a half life and it continue to work for me.

There nurse asked me if I wanted 5 or 10mg recommending that I take the smaller dose to see how I handle it. Don’t be silly I thought. I have been on dozens of meds and nothing has ever knocked me out (With an exception of Clozapien – Blog #009) I took the full 10mg and withing 20 minutes it kicked in. I took it during a movie a group of us was watching and I had to excuse myself because I could barely keep my eyes open. I took it a 9pm – an hour before my Clozapine and by the time I was due for the cloz I could hardly get off my bed. I slept from 10:30 to 8:30 without waking once. No hangover either. JOY!
