Today I found a notice at my visit for therapies to hospital, the notice was asking people who take sleeping pills:-

"Are you trying to ween yourself off sleeping tablets?- here are some important things to look our for whilst you do.

1, Absent mindedness. 2. Forgetful. 3.Confusion. 4.Unable to string a sentence together. 5. Light headed and prone to bumping into things. 6. Feeling like you might have early stages dementia?

How many of us feel these things and like me have recently stopped taking prescription sleepers like zopiclone OR only take them periodically! Food for thought! Are we sending ourselves into this state? I,d love to know if anyone else has this experience.

  • Hi

    I don't take them because of that, I take the herbal ones hoping that they might help. 😊

  • Yes I only take a sleeping tablet zopiclone when I have had no sleep for a few nights -yes it takes me a while to get myself together the next day 😒

  • My goodness I have most of those and only take them when I haven't slept for a few nights,but they don't always work.

  • I don't take any sleeping tablets but I still have all of those problems :(

  • Hi caz-54

    I sincerely hope that you are feeling as well as you possibly can be today? And that your hospital appointment went well for you? I am another respondent who has never taken a sleeping tablet but can relate to all of the symptoms! I never know what to do for being right or wrong anymore over medication? Please take care of yourself my friend.

    All my hopes and dreams for you


  • I'm like that even without sleeping pills!

  • Ahem! I feel like all of those and I've never taken a sleeping tablet in my life !
