 1  insomnia I became anxious and tense all day, began having tremors, started losing 1 to 1.5 pounds daily, went several days with 0 sleep near the end of taking it. Increasingly got worse daily. Still have lasting effects even after quiting the med. My doc kept telling me to wait that it takes time to take effect. When I told her what was happening she said it was in the book couldn't be true. I am still seeking medical for long term damage I feel came directly fromthis drug. F 36 14 days

 1  Insomnia Trouble staying asleep. Extremely tired during the day and unable to function. I've taken this drug for 9 days. My doctor said it would take 2 weeks to work effectively. I can't stay on it for this long because always the next day I am so tired that I can barley function at work and have no desire to do anything but lay around. It just zaps your energy. I also keep waking up during the night and feel worse than taking no medication. I am going to stick to tamazapam, it works great compared to Rozerem. It feels like your taking a placebo. Don't waste your time. F 45 9 days

 1  insomnia Having trouble staying asleep--so the doctor gave me samples of rozerem to help me relax. I got LESS rest after taking it. I took one but won't take anymore. I had a miserable night after taking rozerem---was awake all night, could not even relax---I get more rest taking a 10mg tablet of Flexeril at bedtime. F 59 1 days

 1  Insomnia I was prescribed this when I was coming off of a SSRI and went through the insomnia/Zap episodes. It worked once in a while. Took 1 tab after having a sleepless night a few days ago and the zaps came back? Trying to think of the best way to destroy $112 worth of this crap. I'll never take it again. M 46 1 days

 1  insomnia insomnia, anxiety, restlessness My doctor gave this to me as a sample because I was experiencing insomnia and body aches. My other doctor had suggested benadryl awhile back, but the benadryl had lost it's effect. The first night I took the Rozerem, I didn't even get tired. I was up all night and could barely function the next day. The second night, I fell asleep (only because I was so exhausted) but still had a hard time staying asleep. The following nights were terrible as well. I eventually gave in to Tylenol P.M. and discontinued the Rozerem. I'm convinced it's a sugar pill. F 35 6 days

 1  Insomnia My body quivers deep down inside. I can't explain it, almost like restless leg syndrome. It makes me very anxious, not tired at all and my whole body hurts the next day. I am an incurable insomniac: I have haluccinations with ambien, I hate the after taste of lunesta, and I'm still breastfeeding so I can't take Restoril (which is the only thing that works). Rozerem is worthless, it doesn't knock me out...if anything it keeps me awake. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this drug is a crock! I thought I was having a bad reaction to coming off of my pain medication but quit taking the Rozerem anyways. Tonight I was desperate for some sleep and here I am, wide awake...it was the Rozerem all along! F 28 10 days

 1  Insomnia I was awake until after 5am the next morning. This stuff does not work. It was a doctor sample as he doesn't believe in benzo's. Why is it that so many doctor's don't believe in older, cheap, meds with a proven track record, but they are quick to give samples of the newest drug releases? Reminds me of a song that goes "Money, money, mon-aa". M 1 days

 1  insomnia, frequent waking horrible side effects-following day felt like I had a combination of the flu, the worst hangover I've ever had and exhaustion as if I'd run a marathon the day before: ever joint ached, muscle aches all over, incredible headache and just generally horrible all over feelings. Was so bad, I could not believe one small pill could make me feel so awful. could have handled side effects a little bit if Rozerem had given me any help on the insomnia: absolutely no difference on insomnia symptoms...same as before taking it: fell asleep within 1/2 hour, woke up 2 hours later (wide awake & tired), then dozed off & on rest of night for three nights in a row. At which time I was so wiped out from 3 days of horrible side effects that I called doctor & switched F 50 3 days

 2  Chronic Insomnia slight nausea if taken very late, and on a empty stomach. I have been a Lunesta fan for 9 months, but my doctor decided I should try Rozerem in order to reset my sleep cycle since I want to become pregnant in the next 6 months. As mentioned in one other comment, my doctor also mentioned that Rozerem may take up to 2 weeks to kick in, so I was advised to continue the Lunesta as well. It has been 17 nights and I'm not sure I see the benefit yet. I've been giving the Rozerem over an hour to kick me into sleep mode, but I end up taking 2mg of Lunesta because I don't feel anything at bedtime. I will give it another 2 weeks to see if there is improvement. However, I am also weaning off my anti-anxiety med (Lexapro) by 10mg at the same time, which could be part of my problem. F 35 17 days

 2  Insomnia Insomnia! Rozerem kept me from sleeping. I wish it worked for me as I have chronic insomnia, but it looks like I'm stuck with Ambien (stops working after a while) or Lunesta (gives me headaches and a bad taste in my mouth). I would love to be able to sleep with something milder like Rozerem, but this stuff actually worsened my insomnia. Very disappointing. F 38 7 days

 1  Insomnia Hallucinations, trouble going back to sleep. I took for one night. It put me to sleep fast but when I woke up a few hours later to use the bathroom I was hallucinating. My face was morphing in the mirror and the walls looked like they were breathing. It took me three hours to go back to sleep and by then I only had 30 minutes before I had to get up. I found a new doctor and am now on temazepam. M 36 1 days
