Comment from: 55-64 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: September 24

I could not tell I had taken anything to help me sleep. I was very disappointed. Due to some health problems, it is critical that I get a good night's sleep. I am already feeling the results after only 4-5 days of not getting the correct type of sleep, or sleep at all.

Didn't help me to fall asleep or stay asleep. Felt like sugar pill. No help whatsoever. Waste of my money.

This is a drug to take if you're nervous about taking sleep aids. I'm taking it because I actually went to a sleep Dr and he explained insomnia can be a chronic problem and may require long-term treatment. Since Rozerem can be taken long-term (without dependency or tolerance issues) it's the safest choice. I've been taking it for a few months (it took a week or so to work for me) and I fall asleep within 10 minutes! You have to give it time and not expect to be sedated... it will feel like "normal" sleep.

It started working after about 4 weeks - but I have to be ready to go to sleep during it's window of opportunity...which for me is about 2 hours after I take it. I also stay asleep - and if I wake up - I don't stay up.

This med really helps me fall asleep every night. I take it at the same time every night and I've managed to get on a sleep schedule for the first time in a long time because of it. I still wake up during the night, but I can fall back asleep a lot easier than I used to. The only side effect I've had with it is that my dreams are much more vivid and life-like than ever before. It's like my dreams have gone from black & white to technicolor! This is not a medication that can be used once in while, it has to be used on a regular basis to be effective. I skipped a dose one night and couldn't sleep for 2 days! As long as I take it every night, I can sleep.

My doctor explained to me that I needed to take this medication every night for the first month to help reset my sleep/wake cycle. She didn't tell me this at first and when I went back saying it worked ok she explained it better. For those that expect a miracle in one or two days this is not for you. Trust me when I say it is worth the wait. You need to go to bed in a quiet enviroment which is what your body needs anyway to get a good nights rest. I still here my kids get up at night and get up to go to the bathroom when I need to. This is not meant to knock you out, just help you sleep.

I have had trouble sleeping for many years. My physician gave me samples of this drug and the first few days I could not tell that anything was different. After a week or so, it started working great! It still works great, but I am getting samples from my doctor because I cannot afford to buy it. I hope she continues to have enough samples until it goes generic (long time). I take it 30 minutes before time to go to bed as directed. I go to sleep easily. I do wake up once a night to use the bathroom, but I go right back to sleep. I wake up refreshed. No side effects, no drowsiness during the day. I think it's great, I just can't afford it.

My experience with Rozerem is that it calms down your mind, to state of being completely relaxed. It stops my Anxiety so I can actually get some sleep. It helps me a lot, since my Anxiety prevents me from sleeping. Generally when I wake up, I'm stuck in a groggy state until I have eaten.

Comment from: J, 25-34 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: October 24

This drug is the worst. I had much better luck with melatonin (and even better with ambien). Not only did rozerem give me hot sweats and extreme nightmares/paranoia, it sent me into a massive panic attack. After two nights of no sleep whatsoever, I wouldn't take this again if you paid me.

Comes on almost immediately, so I can't take it until just before I lay down. I have to take a lighter dose, but it works far, far better than Lunesta and similar
