I couldn't take Neurontin made me uncontroulably depressed suicidal this was the drug Robin Williams was on. The doctor didn't mention it when he gave it to me and I was desperate to sleep with Restlees Leg Syndrome. So for years went down crazy leg nightmare with no sleep. Then mentioned it to my new dr. he gave me Ropinirole .5mg. The silver bullit for me. Snoreeeeeeeeeee Love it! Now at first it hurt my gut have to take it with dinner real food and then sometimes have to take an antacid in the middle of the night. I cannot take prevacid, or any of the stomach pills.
I take Melatonin which is all natural and not addictive. It is over the counter and my Dr. didn't have a problem with it at all. It comes in different strengths. I take 3mgs.
At night, I take Tizanidine (muscle relaxer), Trazadone (sleep), and Tramadol (pain) and I'm out in 5 minutes. I sleep for at least 4-5 hours.
I take Neurontin and i still dont sleep more than a few hours a night i think it depends on the person, my doctor put me on Oxycontin for other pain but it seems to work somewhat its not the best answer but i have some relief from them and they help you to sleep (but not me) lol
