Having always been one who slept very well I started to have problems this year due to circumstances in my life. Eventually I went to the doc (locum) who prescribed mild sleeping pills with a warning that they could be addictive. I only took them when desperate and they only helped a bit.
Since life has improved considerably I still can't sleep so went to the doc yesterday. He was brilliant and explained why I still had the problem and prescribed stronger meds which I have to take for 2 weeks without a break and then go back and see him.
I took one last night at 10 pm and slept until 1100 this morning! I still feel tired and 'odd' and definitely would not drive.
Am I going to feel like this the whole time? Should I just keep taking them and become a hermit for 2 weeks? Appreciate any advice from those who know.
