9. The benefits of coming off sleeping tablets (z-drugs)


One of the main reasons a lot of people
want to get off the medication is for the freedom. Being stuck on this
medication, having to take it with you all the time it gets in the way and
also people get locked into really awkward routines, you know, I’ve got to
take the medication at this particular time of the night which means I’ve got to go to bed at this particular time of the night which means I can’t do all of the
things that I necessarily want to do. So a lot of people who come here tell us
that, actually it’s very… gives them a lot of fun to finally be off the medication
and to be able to sleep naturally and people often say that they didn’t
actually realise that there are other methods other than taking the medication. Often when people are attending at this service they’re on the medication but
they’ve already hit tolerance, so even though they’re taking the z-drugs,
they’re still having insomnia, they’re still having a tough time getting to
sleep and the medication isn’t actually doing its job anymore. So when they
finally get off, and get that drug out of their
system and they’re finally able to learn to sleep naturally again it’s a really
fantastic outcome for them because previously they were not just on the
medication but they weren’t sleeping and once they get off finally they’re able
to sleep normally.
