Another disturbed night of sleep!

I’m sure it has something to do with my reduction of Lorazepam. I’ve just started my third month of gradually removing my bodies need for Lorazepam; now only one tablet at night.

I’m noticing that I am irritable, lethargic, have a constant dull headache, have aching limbs, and know my arrhythmia during the day. Strange, but during this first week, I seem to be taking more GTN! However, I’ve had this before when I started each monthly reduction, so although I’m sure this is related to the decrease, I feel confident it will pass.

Nights are bad. It’s this constant drifting between being asleep and awake or more that I’m not aware of those times from one to another. It feels as if I am on the cusp of being asleep all the time. This is undoubtedly impacting my day, but again, I have experienced this at the start of each reduction, so fingers crossed it will get better.

Please comment on anything I have said. Thank You!
