 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

 1  insomnia also the benzodiazepams are GABA agonists...the GABA receptors are inhibitory and are also activated by non benzo drugs (ambien) as well...so their are many receptors that can be responsible for insomnia.... M 47

 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

 5  Insomnia Not sure what side effects I have since I started 4 medications at one time I take 100 trazodone, 50 mg Imipramine, .50 xanax and 8 mg Rozerem every night. 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

 1  insomnia very dizzy for 36 hrs after 8 mg. dose. Also woke up several times during the night. I stopped after one dose. Didn't feel safe driving. With Ambien and Lunesta, I felt groggy the next day; but never dizzy. The Rozerem after-effects were like a buzz - also hand and neck tingling. F 62 1 days
