 1  To help me sleep Horrible sleeplessness because I started itching and itching and itching. It was like being hypnotized but my mind would not shut off. I did eventually fall asleep but would wake up every 15 -30 minutes. Horrible experience. now it's 1:30 a.m. and I am wide awake! F 59 1 days

 1  Insomnia Sleep paralysis. It felt like my body was asleep while my mind was fully conscious. So frustrating! And it prevented me from falling asleep. I can't remember what the dosage was. Why is this crap so expensive?! It was a worthless waste of big money! Months after the first try, I tried it a second time, just to make sure it wasn't just a fluke, but the second try was just as bad as the first. I only tried it because it's touted as non-addictive - well, of course you won't get addicted to something that DOES NOT WORK! F 42 2 times

 3  Insomnia Took rozerem for the first time last night. Will also (most likely) be the last. Did its job, was sound asleep in 15 minutes. Also had nightmares. Woke up every hour or so, but easy to fall back asleep. When sleeping it was sound sleep. Also was very paranoid about 5am that somebody was breaking into my home. Quite groggy today as well. Not sure of paranoia is a common side effect or not. I am normally somewhat paranoid so it may have just increased that. But it did its job in putting me to sleep right away! M 26 1 days

 1  Insomnia Horrible. Did not have hallucinations or panic attacks but it did not work at all! Was afraid to take additional 8 mg since it appeared it would make me feel worse according to other reviews. Did not work last night (slept maybe 3-4 hours fitfully) from around 4 am and was wise awake at 7 am, no drowsiness the next day! No weird reactions, crap just did nothing! Ended up taking 18 mg of Silenor for 1st time (just got samples); 2 doses of Benadryl (more than 4 hours apart), Ibuprofen, 9 mg of Melatonin and 1 mg of Klonopin, and still no sleeop! Silenor sucks, too! Have also tried Trazedone, Restoril, Seroquel, other trycyclics, Lunesta, and Ambien. Beginning to think Benadryl and Melatonin work better! Am ready to try a barbituate-based sleep medicine if my Dr. will give me a few for a few nights of sleep! Only slept 2 out of the last 8 nights, constantly woke up but was at least able to get back to sleep those 2 nights. Usually cannot fall asleeo or wake up after 1 1/2 -2 hours and stay awake. I am on Medicaid, so at least I did not pay much for this worthless junk. No wonder they don't advertise for it anymore! F 42 1 days

 2  Insomnia Rozerem did not work consistently. Some nights it helped me get a few hrs. of sleep other nights not at all. I also noticed vivid dreams and fatigue the next day like many other people. I haven't found a sleep med. that works well for me yet! I wonder why one can't be developed that works better? So many of us seem to have sleep problems. F 48 10 days

When i get to sleep i usaully can stay asleep, but when i took this drug i woke up to an old man standing in front of me in the middle of the damn night. He made a suprized face and dissapeared into thin air. Im not sure why this happend, but it creeped me out a little. I was able to get to sleep though. M 16 3 days

 1  Insomnia, trouble sleeping Paranoid the next day, drowsy; tired feeling morning after, horrible nightmares, did not help with sleep. This felt like nothing more than Melatonin. It took me forever to fall asleep and when I finally did I had this awful nightmare. I woke up in tears and was paranoid the rest of the day. This drug was as effective as eating a skittle before bed and beaming a horror movie into my head, except skittles at least taste good. I wouldn't recommend this. F 19 1 days

 1  Insomnia Difficulty falling and staying asleep, "horrible" nightmares and hallucinations, sleep paralysis, tachycardia (rapid heartbeat) and lethargy the next day. I normally take Ambien, which works well, but wanted to try the Rozerem because it was my understanding that it was much milder than Ambien. I only took it for one night, but I am absolutely terrified to take it again! I had the worst nightmares that I have ever had in my life, and was imagining people/demons in my room! I almost always know I'm dreaming, and this was no exception; but this time, I was "trying" very hard to wake up or move and couldn't! The next day, I had a rapid heartbeat and difficulty staying awake and alert at work. F 41 1 days

 1  Insomnia No side effects at all. Like everyone else on here, I too was told that this drug would take 7 - 10 days to begin to work. I have been very patient and have been taking it with the same nightly routine for over 30 days now. No effect at all. I took Ambien in the past until I switched to Rozerem and I regret making the switch. Rozerem does absolutely NOTHING. I eventually had to up my Ambien to two pills per night and occassionally 3 to get it to work but it would work. Rozerem does nothing and may make it harder to sleep than without any drug. 3 to 4 hours to get to sleep. M 43 30 days

 1  Insomnia, trouble sleeping Very Very bad headaches. Vivid scary dreams. didn't get full nights sleep. woke up often I was prescribed this drug because of insomnia from detoxing off of alcohol. The onset of action could be felt after about an hour, so I tried to take it at least an hour before bed. I fell asleep, but found myself waking up frequently and in the morning, each time I had hangover type feelings. I was prescribed this drug because it is 'non' habit forming. I will no longer take it...Ill read a book at night instead. M 37 3 days

 1  have trouble falling asleep I have not had any side effects After reading the posts I see why I can't fall asleep like I do on the other sleep aids u have to take this with time. Yeah not gonna work I thought this pill was just a placebo. I was on the other one lunesta or whatever I have the generic ones so don't know exact names. I like the other one cause it makes me sleepy and have no groggy feeling in the morning. I take the sleep pills because I have adhd and take meds for that and if I take it too late then I have trouble sleeping and to make matters worse I work till 10pm and I'm tired when I get home but not sleepy takes me at least till 1-2am to get relaxed enough to sleep but I think the pill is a placebo and I told my Dr that. I do have a reasonably high tolerance for any pill. When I was in the hospital for my heart surgery, the staff was just amazed how high it is and I'm not a drug addict. Just for some reason pills don't effect me like others. Been on the highest dose of Vicodin and felt every bit of pain with no relief at all just made me sick same goes for percoset I can take so many and no pain relief just sick to my stomach. Going back to my other sleeping pills F 29 2 days

 5  Insomnia As far as side effects the only thing I experienced was dry throat and eyes upon waking up, more so than usual. I'm not sure the dosage I took, but I was told by the doctor that ROZEREM is not a one time sleep aid like AMBIEN. It contains melatonin and will help you get better sleep over time. After taking it for two weeks I was sleeping a lot better. I fell asleep quicker, didn't wake up at night and slept longer. I don't suffer from fatigue like I did and I've got more energy during the day. It works great for me, but I've read a few reviews of people who don't like it. My advice, Follow the directions and read about the drug before you take it. M 33 30 days

 4  chronic insomnia some headaches initially; eventually passed. Ramelteon is NOT the same as taking melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that affects many things and that's what hormones are; chemicals that ACTIVATE things (not just sleep way cycle). Ramelteon is a melatonin receptor agonist that only activates M1 and M2 receptors-which are the only two that affect sleep. If you take melatonin, you are affecting many systems. Ramelteon only effects sleep-wake cycle. That is why you cannot take high doses of melatonin without causing potentially life threatening reactions. F 36 3 months

 2  Insomnia Nausea; ear ringing; weakness; cough; strange dreams I understand from my doctor that Rozerem takes 10-12 days to "re-set" your body clock. I was prepared for that. The first 2 days, I did fall asleep promptly; woke up 2-4 hours later; returned to sleep & woke up for good another 2-3 hours later. However, the side effects are off-putting. Before Rozerem, I was briefly on Ambien & Valium for insomnia/anxiety/to relax my back muscles. They & Rozerem all made me nauseous, depressed & anxious the next day. Ambien first gave me dreams; then night terrors. By night 2 of Rozerem, I was dreaming that I was talking to the President - just like in the commercials. Very weird. Then I was hearing my cell phone ringtone when it wasn't ringing. And I got a cough in the middle of 90+ degree summer days. The cough may be a coincidence, but the rest isn't. F 45 2 days

I wake up usually 2 to 3 times a night but usually get 5 hours straight sleep. Also I read in my oxygen magazine 1000 mg of calcium and 500 of magnesium would help too. It does seem to help.

 5  Insomnia, newly sober Other than a bit of a headache and fatigue I feel great. I can't believe all of the comments on here about so many side affects...I have ZERO...sleep great and wake up refreshed just like this drug promises....if it's just uber-melotonin then why would people feel angry or suicidal??? Me thinks people invent things to stay sick or a victim so as not fully participate in life or address the real issues. Great drug!! You must go to bed, turn off tv, turn off lights, etc. and THEN the drug takes over...otherwise you could mow the yard or vacuum your house...you HAVE TO GO TO BED for this drug to work!!

 1  Chronic insomnia Took the pill at about 9:30 or 10pm...back up several times up for good at 2am and could not go back to sleep until my alarm went off at 5am. I was told that this drug is to "reset my sleep clock" and that it may take some time. I don't have time. I need a drug that will work. A drug that will put me to sleep and make me stay asleep. I want my life back. I want naps on the weekends and to be able to sleep till 9 in the morning when I can. I need 20mgs of ambien but for obvious reasons, no doctor will prescribe me that much. I just want to sleep all night and get up in the morning and be rested and not have to guzzle 2 cups of strong coffee and a red bull before 10am. F 36 2 days

 1  chronic insomnia Waking up more than normal. Bad dream last night. Went to bed at 9:45 woke up at 12:15. Headaches, groggy as hell. Look like hell. Big dark bags under eyes. Stepping down Xanax and was ASSURED this crap would help me stay asleep. Been up more the past 2 nights than just having insomnia. Dreams were bad. Was actually thinking of doubling the dose on my own but I'd rather go back to the Benzo's and get a good night's sleep then deal with the withdrawal some other time. This stuff sucks and is expensive. Will wait for GNC to deliver my Melatonin and will check back to let you know if that works. M 51 2 days

 1  Lack of sleep flu like symptoms(lots of internal body heat), vivid scary dreams, extreme anger out of the blue, suicidal thoughts, horrible depression, increased heartrate, feeling of throat constricting. My doctor told me to take this but the side effects are the worst ever. I had really creepy vivid dreams. I would wake up 3 hours after taking it , fell back asleep and felt bad the whole day. I had a constant feeling that my body was really internally hot. My throat felt constricted. I felt like dying. Then I visited my parants and out of the blue I started a horrible argument, with me being very angry and saying horrific things I would NEVER unless I was out of control, which I felt like. When I got home I realized that I am never like that , and my body felt extremely hot, I could feel my heart pounding really fast, my throat was feeling very constricting and I could tell this was not normal at all. I immediately went to look at the side effects of the medicine online and realized the cause, because that argument was not me, it was like some angry new person had arrived. I immediately apologized and explained the situation to my parents by the way. I would not reccomend this medication, I'm sticking to over the counter melatonin. M 19 7 days

 5  Chronic Insomnia Vivid dreams, but no nightmares Started taking Rozerem after AmbienCR stopped working. Doctor explained this med is to be taken nightly & gains efficacy over time. This explains why it didn't initially work for me. After 1 to 1-1/2 mos. it began to work. I now fall asleep within 15-20 minutes & if I wake during night I'm able to get back to sleep. So, the bottom line is that I still wake up during the night, but my sleep is MUCH better; more consistent and more restful. I will continue to take Rozerem. If you're going to try this, take it nightly & give it time to work for you. F 49 6 months

 1  busy life style, noisy roomates restless arms and legs, trouble breathiing (i weigh 120 LBs, and have never had difficulty breathing), muscle aches in morning, trouble urinating, dizziness in morning such dizziness to where i was knocked off balance, headache, very groggy in morning that didn`t wear off until mid-evening when I took prior at 7 pm, and did I mention trouble urinating, oh yes and very vivid nightmares and strange dream occurances, if you want to be the next Steven King writer I would recommend this drug. I had some very vivid dreams, I honestly thought I was in real life while I was having these dreams, and often woke up not knowing where I was. I thought the dreams now are pretty cool, but at the time I was afraid to wake up `cause of me being so frightened. I had to really concentrate on going to the bathroom and as embarrasing as this sounds before taking this no problem and after taking it i had a problem going number one. all the other symptoms are listed above, and ya thats all for now, I dont recommend this, I will stick to my natural remedies for sleep aides, I feel bad and sorry for everyone experiencing bad problems with this drug, maybe you should go see an orthomolecular doctor.

 1  15-yr insomnia due to Fibromyalgia Horrible nightmares, restlessness, feeling wired and anxious, waking frequently and unable to go back to sleep, difficulty falling asleep (normally not my problem), fatigue, flu-like symptoms I have been taking Lunesta for about 2 years but it stopped working well. I tried Sonata for 1 month and found out it is great for falling asleep but not staying asleep. I have issues with staying asleep, but usually fall asleep pretty easily. The first night I fell asleep well but woke even more than usual and had more trouble getting back to sleep. The following day I felt like I was getting the flu and felt anxious and restless. The next night I was drowsy before taking it, but after it kicked in I could not get to sleep and felt restless and wired. When I finally did, I woke up with horrific, vivid nightmares that I am still shaking from 3 hours later. I also feel extremely anxious and tearful and rather emotionally unstable. I do not have any psychiatric problems normally. I would stay FAR away from this drug and my bottle is going in the trash tonight. F 34 2 days

My doctor advised that Rozerem would not work for two weeks, so I took an Ambien CR with the Rozerem the first two weeks. After two weeks, I tried to go to sleep with just the Rozerem but couldn't. I then tried taking a 5mg. Ambien with the Rozerem and fell asleep right away. I will do this for two weeks and then attempt the Rozerem by itself again. I'm so excited to get off the Ambien so I can remember my actions. I have tried every other sleep aid there is, and have never fallen asleep with them. F 54 18 days

 1  long-term insomnia I finally fell asleep 5 or 6 hours after taking the drug and slept about 3 hours. When I woke up I felt extremely drugged, confused and felt like I existed in a fog. I didn't dare drive my car. Then the depression began. It became worse and worse and suddenly I began having frightening suicidal thoughts. I occasionally have short bouts of mild depression but do not need medication and have never felt depression like this or had suicidal thoughts. I only made it through the day by reminding myself over and over that it was just the drug and it would wear off. By evening I felt quite a bit better. I would never, ever use this drug again. I feel it is an extremely dangerous drug and should be pulled from the market. Where on earth is the FDA? Do they really check anything out? If I hadn't been a strong willed and rational person, I actually believe that I might have killed myself. F 66 1 days

 1  insomnia/trouble falling asleep and OMG! Anxiety, depression, EXTREME sadness, suicidal thoughts, hyper-sensativity, couldn't concentrate, worse insomnia I would NEVER take this drug again! I realize everyone is different chemically, but for me it was almost suicide. I wasn't sure what was happening to me so I thought about the fact that I had been on Rozerem for 5 to 6 weeks. It actually worked at first for the insomnia. Little by little I started noticing me going down hill and I just didn't know why. I do have clinical depression and as long as I take my antidepressant I'm fine. I recognized the signs and wondered what the heck was going on. The ONLY thing different in my life was Rozerem. I went off of it 5 days ago, felt HORRIBLE for 2 days post, depression started lifting 3 days post, now I am back to normal. If you have ANY type of clinical depression or major depressive disorder I would say STAY AWAY FROM THIS DRUG!!! It almost caused a breakup in my relationship with my partner and last but not least, ruined my sex drive. I wouldn't take this drug again if I was paid to take it. I am convinced that it was doing something to my hormone levels, somehow, some way. I AM in the medical field but can't figure this one out. I really thought it was just an innocent, natural sleep aid, and apparently so did my doc. Just one more detail, I am also a recovering alcoholic and haven't touched alcohol for years. I was EXTREMELY close to drinking to get rid of the HORRIBLE depression, sadness, and anxiety. F 55 6 weeks

 2  insomnia Feeling only half asleep - increase in fasting glucose. I had very high hopes for this drug since my doctor told me that it is safe to take every night (I have had chronic insomnia for most of my life). First of all, I want to agree with those who mention a hung over feeling the next day. I would feel drowsy and drained (not much different from when I didn't sleep at all). I WOULD sleep with Rozerem but it was a creepy, half-asleep feeling - almost as if part of me was sleeping while the other part was wide awake and watching myself sleep. This has never happened with any other sleep aid. I have impaired fasting glucose and I monitor every morning to be sure I have it controlled (diet and exercise work for me). So, it is a HUGE issue for me that every night that I took Rozerem, my fasting glucose level would be extremely high in the morning. No Rozerum: normal glucose. I think this could be quite a dangerous drug - I went back to Ambien! M 57 20 days

 1  Insomnia Anger, having realized that this is nothing more than Melatonin. Let me start by stating that I'm a clinical nutritionist and know exactly what I'm talking about. I have moreover researched this subject extensively. Rozerem is nothing more than an over-glorified, highly-concentrated melatonin, do NOT waste your time or money on this. Just go to a reputable health food store, and purchase a reputable 3 mg Melatonin formula. Look for one that included B6 for absorption. Start with 3 tablets nightly (9 mg) the first week, decrease to 2 the 2nd week (6 mg), and finally to one by week three. Your day/light cycle will be significantly restored and you will have saved a ton of cash in the process. M 36

 1  insomnia Feeling drowsy but not falling asleep and staying asleep. Wake up 5 to 7 times a night. Often experience "restless body syndrome" shortly after going to bed; arms and legs flailing out of control. This experience is frightening. Only way to stop it is to get out of bed. This drug is about as helpful to me as OTC Melatonin. Worked a few times and that was it. I find it hard to believe that in it's testing phases it helped a significant majority of people to sleep.

 5  early waking very few side effects. A little sleepy during the day. In the beginning I did have some side effects: melancholy, weird sleep, some dizzyness and nausea. But I think I had better advice from my doctor: Give it time, let it work. Now I sleep 7 - 8 hours most nights instead of 4 like the last 30 years. I still have one or two nights a week when I sleep less but still more than 4. I'll take a little sleepiness during the day in exchange. I find if I nap for 10 - 20 minutes even that goes away. Napping is also a blessing; I could never sleep during the day before. Plus I love the vivid dreams. Very entertaining. My advice is unless you are having dangerous side effects then give it a month.

 1  Help getting to sleep Numbness and tingling in extremities. No sleep at all. Started to panic because I felt like I was on drugs. I was afraid to try to go to sleep because the symptoms were all I could focus on. I will never take this "sleep aid" again. I wasted over $120 on this prescription. I would rather have regular insomnia than all the extra side effects this drug gave me. F 37 1 days

 3  menopausal insomnia "adrenal stress Bit druggy in a.m., but I can't say this came entirely from the Rozerem. It cleared up quickly. It works sometimes. That's why I gave it a "3" -- Somewhat Satisfied. Not sure what the key is. Perhaps sleep quality was also governed by how I generally felt that day. F 53 20 times
