Rozerem 8mg???? sleep medication.?

Asked by Erna Kube 6 months ago.
Rozerem is the first and only prescription sleep aid that is not a controlled substance Controlled substances are drugs that have government restrictions placed on them partly because of their potential for being addictive. And the fact that Rozerem is not a controlled substance makes it a one-of-a-kind prescription sleep medication. Rozerem is not classified as a sedative, so it's not likely you'll feel sedated after you take it. Instead, Rozerem helps you sleep by working with your normal sleep-wake cycle. So you may feel like you are gently drifting off to sleep. But since Rozerem works with your internal sleep clock as called the biggest side effect that most patinets experience the first few days/weeks is being constantly tired/fatigued. Since your body has lost so much sleep with rozerem it tries to gain back all that lost sleep you had. I've seen in several clinical trials here in the hospital that we have had that its work for many patients but they do complain a lot about being chronically tired.

Try this to help sleep: Yes it's an answer I gave another question but I just find it works so well. During the day, keep your activity levels generally high. Get plenty of exercise, at least an hour or an hour and a half. Do not do exercise in the latter parts of the evening, and definitely not within the 2 hours before you go to bed. You must avoid having any naps during the day, do not go into the bed for any reason - reading or otherwise :-) Your body needs to learn to associate bed with sleep. Ensure that your sleep environment is good, minimise any lighting, sound, and disturbances, and have the temperature a couple of degrees cooler, so that you're relaxed but not shivering. Lastly, drink a cup of hot milk, with a little bit of cinnamon sprinkled on the top. Try to avoid adding any sugar if possible, but if you really have to, use some honey. It's extremely rich in tryptophans which are excellent hypnotic agents. Now go to sleep... Sleeping tablets are, generally speaking, not addictive if you only use them occasionally, that is for no more than 2 days in a row and less than once every 2 weeks. By the way, if you want to adjust for the next day, your body needs 25 hours notice because that's the usual sleep/wake cycle - meaning that, for example if you've got a 4am flight on Monday, you need to start getting to sleep early on Saturday, not just Sunday. If you try to get the extra sleep on Sunday, you'll just confuse the body clock. If you force yourself to do so with sleeping aids, you'll just be even more tired plus with extra sleep. Be nice to your body and it'll be nice to you :-) Answered by Jen Walson 6 months ago.
Ramelteon (Rozerem) is a melatonin receptor agonist. Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone that is released by a gland in your brain in response to darkness. You'd save money by just buying Melatonin at your local pharmacy, unless you have great health insurance. Rozerem does basically the same thing as melatonin. It doesn't work for all people, but one big plus is that it does not cause dependence like other sleeping medications. My advice would be to try the melatonin before giving Rozerem a shot. Talk to your doctor if you have any more questions. Answered by Ali Lue 6 months ago.

If you're taking Rozerem, the newest prescription sleep aid, or if you've taken it before, I'd love to know what you do or don't like about it. :) I've been thinking of asking my doctor for it, as it apparently has zero capacity to become "addictive". It also sounds like the most "natural" drug in how it works. FYI: I don't need sleep help all the time. I only need help when I have to go to bed abnormally early on a particular night, due to having to rise abnormally early the next morning. My normal "sleep onset" is somewhat late, but that's OK usually, since my work schedule is flexible and my commute is short. HOWEVER, if I need to be up super-early to catch a plane, leave for a roadtrip, etc., I'd ideally like to go to bed extra early the night before. But, no luck!! :( I've tried chamomile, Benadryl, melatonin, meditation, warm baths -- I just can't fall asleep at a time my body &/or brain perceives as "way too early". THAT'S when I hope a pill like Rozerem can help! :) Answered by Chance Paxson 6 months ago.
Rozerem is a different option for the treatment of Insomnia. It works on the body's normal sleep wake cycle with an affinity - or attraction - for the Melatonin Receptors in your brain. It binds to the Melatonin 1 and 2 receptors helping the body to first fall asleep and then resets the body's circadian clock. It is unlike Ambien and Lunesta in that it will not make you feel sedated nor is it likely to cause cognative or balance impairment. It is working on different receptors than those associated with the side effects with the more common sedative hypnotics. People that have experience with other sleep agents should be aware that Rozerem will not make you feel groggy or sedated so don't expect to feel much after taking the 8mg tablet. Rozerem helps you to drift off to sleep, so practice good sleep hygiene. If you currently take Ambien or Lunesta or some other sleep aid that causes rebound insomnia, talk with your physician about the best way to successfully switch medications as stopping an older sleep agent will cause rebound insomnia. Rozerem can be taken as needed - so take it when you need it and stop when you don't. I hope this helps. I found www.rozerem.com very useful. *** I want to add that Rozerem does and will not make you sleep drive or eat or any other activity that you are unaware of while you are sleeping - - the reason is simple.... Rozerem does not work on the receptors within the brain that are associated with any of the CNS Depressent side effects like cognative impairment or balance issues or sedation. Rozerem works on the body's Melatonin receptors and the normal sleep wake cycle.*** Furthermore, Rozerem was included in the same basket as the other sleep medications simply because it is a sleep medication. I can almost assure you 100% that Rozerem will not have a Black Label Warning as I'm sure the others will since they work on the receptors within the brain that cause CNS depressive side effects. RESEARCH and you will find the truth... hope this helps. Answered by Ivy Coatsworth 6 months ago.

I tried Rozerem when I worked night shifts in the hospital. It worked pretty well for me. I was not able to get my 7 or 8 hrs of sleep during the day, but at least I did not have any unpleasant side effects. I think it is a good choice for occasional use. Answered by Shaquana Dundlow 6 months ago.

On the drug rozerem . .?
anyone know if its effective?
Asked by Felice Parriott 6 months ago.
Rozerem is high powered melatonin basically in prescription form. It can be for some however due to expense, your better off with 3mg of Melatonin 1 tab before bedtime, stop caffiene and excercise. Try to read, relax, no video games or action movies, that my friend is what we call poor sleep hygiene. I would use something else that actually works better. Now, dependence is not an issue or addiction with this med but it can make you groggy the next day, or hangover effect. Have you tried Trazodone before? It can be helpful, but still the hangover effect can linger like a bad Benadryl day, but it's dirt cheap and is a prescription. As far as efficacy is concerned, I don't use it as a first line choice. Trazodone, Gabapentin, and short term benzodiazepine's like lorazepam, Clonazepam, or Temazepam are much better as far as efficacy is concerned. Lunesta, Ambien, which I feel is the worst sleep med you can take, Sonata are non-benzodiazepine's but hit the same receptors in the brain and you can become just as dependent as the old tried and trusted benzo's, discuss with your physician. Don't let them talk you into taking Seroquel or any other neuroleptic's, it's no worth the side effect profile and damge to your body, take care. Answered by Audria Hatchitt 6 months ago.
Rozerem Sleep Aid?
My Dr. prescribed me Rozerem today, to help with my occasional insomnia. I have not taken it yet and would like some feedback from you guys regarding it's effectiveness and any side effects. Thanks!
Asked by Lissa Paino 6 months ago.
Rozerem is not classified as a sedative, so it's not likely you'll feel sedated after you take it. It is a completely new class of medications that are used for insomnia. Studies have also shown there is no scientific evidence that Rozerem will lead to abuse or dependence. So you can take Rozerem as long as you need to and stop when you don’t. Unlike say Ambien or other sleep, aids you will not be depended on the medication. Your interactions are your usual, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and constipation. Do not take if you are on Diflucan Answered by Autumn Sienkiewicz 6 months ago.
I'm sure each person has a different reaction to each medication. I, however, did not do well with rozerem. It actually kept me more awake. Now I just take two Benadryl and sleep like a baby. Answered by Christen Dilthey 6 months ago.

Asked by Shelton Feuerborn 6 months ago.
Rozerem is probably the mildest prescription sleep-aid on the market. Xanax is a pretty heavy anti-anxiety drug, but because Rozerem doesn't contain any narcotic ingredients and mostly just mimics natural brain chemicals (opposed to the other prescription sleep aids), it really shouldn't be a problem. There are also no known interactions between the two. I'd say you're fine to take it tonight. However, consult with your doctor or pharmacist if you plan on continuing this combo.

I have just been put on Rozerem and i have took it for the past 2 nights and i will fall asleep pretty fast but will wake up about 10 times during the night. Im also taking Alprazolam and the dr. said to take 1/2 alprazolam and the Rozerem. Both nights have happened like that so i guess my question is has anyone else experienced this? Answered by Daniel Widrig 6 months ago.
I took Rozerem and I hated it. I had horrible nightmares! If you're also taking xanax you should be able to sleep comfortably. But my experience with Rozerem was horrible. I told my doctor about it, and she put me on Ambien CR. I still find the best thing that helps me sleep is a supplement called melatonin. But be careful with the Rozerem. I'd NEVER go on it again!

Asked by Candida Trible 6 months ago.
Rozerem is not meant to work each night as ambien or lunesta do. It works in a similar fashion to melatonin. You have to take it routinely for it to work. It has to build up & maintain a level in your body. Other sleep drugs actually get you to sleep that night, but are more likely to be linked to addiction, so maybe its your false expectations that are hendering your sleep. Check with your Dr. If you need something more effective in a shorter amount of time. RN & Rozerem user (have previously tried Ambien too!) Answered by Hien Panaro 6 months ago.

I am wondering if anyone has experienced memory loss with Ambien and not with Rozerem. Do I have anything to worry about? Answered by Keli Kuy 6 months ago.
Absolutely. Ambien and Rozerem are a part of a drug class known as sedative-hypnotics. In either case, they cause what is referred to as anterograde amnesia, as opposed to retrograde amnesia. In other words, you sometimes won't remember things that you do after you've taken the medication. It's a rare side effect, and is not considered a "high risk" side effect because Ambien and Rozerem are so powerful and fast acting that people are usually out cold 30 minutes after they take it. However, there have been known cases of sleep driving, etc, like with yourself. Rozerem is in the same class, it's a hypnotic and it absolutely can cause the same type of reaction. However, some people react differently to different meds, so it may not affect you the same way Ambien has. Answered by Karen Juckett 6 months ago.

Lunesta vs. Rozerem?
I have a sample pack of 8mg Rozerem and a sample pack of 2mg Lunesta. Which one have you guys had success with? How pronounced are the differences?
Asked by Kacy Miron 6 months ago.
Hello Mike, goooo salukis! I've sampled both, the Rozerem and the Lunesta. I found that the Rozerem kept me asleep for a full normal sleeping period (6 to 8 hrs), however I woke to a very groggy almost hangover feeling. The Lunesta on the other hand didn't keep me asleep long (maybe 3 hours), so I was forced to double the dose (4mg) to achieve a normal sleep phase sometimes?. Upon waking I felt refreshed, though major cotton mouth is a problem. I don't feel that either of them do a wonderful job with my diagnosed insomnia, i'm looking to try ambien cr next. Good Luck to you. Answered by Shameka Rhodd 6 months ago.
Rozerem Vs Lunesta Answered by Xiomara Wygand 6 months ago.
Lunesta works better for me. Rozerm didn't work at all. Careful though...when you take Lunesta, be sure you get a full 8 hrs of sleep otherwise you'll spend the first waking hour not remembering anything you do, conversations, doing things, etc. Quite freaky! Answered by Adena Gasaway 6 months ago.
i've never taken either, but I know Rozerum has no risk of dependency. if I were you, i'd steer clear of perscription sleep aids. I have terrible hypersomnia and the best thing to take is an over the counter melatonin supplement. melatonin is the chemical that your body releases when it's time for you to sleep, and some people's bodies don't do it in a very timely manner, so the best thing to do is take it yourself. most drugstores will carry it, just ask the pharmasist. I use "Mid-Nite" but it is not a very large dose. But most drugstores also carry straight melatonin pills with a larger does. Trust me, if you're going to try a sleep aid, make a perscription your last resort. melatonin works better than any sleeping pill I know. Try it. Answered by Isreal Pinley 6 months ago.
Street Value of Lunesta and Rozerem?
Are they worth anything? Thanks.
Asked by Leah Mcdevitt 6 months ago.
Lunesta and Rozerem are prescription sleeping pills, also known as hypnotics. I am not sure what you had in mind, but I doubt they are worth anything on the street. These meds do not make you high or very calm and dreamy. They are very different from meds like valium, klonopin, xanax and ativan. All lunesta and rozeren will do is put you to sleep. I have a doctor's prescription to klonopin, which I take at night to help me with insomnia. I was getting addicted to klonopin, so I asked my doctor for lunesta. Recently, I usually take klonopin abouot 4-5 nights a week. The other nights I use lunesta so I dont get totally dependent on klonopin. My plan is to increase lunesta and decrease (and eventually stop) klonopin. Answered by Heike Rastogi 6 months ago.
