I'm so sorry  :( I feel your pain, and I think we all do. I hate when we have to experiment with all this crap and nothing works. I hope the doctor can help with some other suggestions and you can also think of some other creative ideas to help, maybe not necessarily to induce sleep but how to stay calm and pass time while you are awake and coping with/trying to deal with all this. <3

Im in the same situation, melatonin saved Me two years ago and help me get off the K but it stopped working last september and now Im back to square one . I tried everything to no avail. Im still searching for some other natural supplement . Damn benzo got back on because nothing else worked but this is a dead end street.

Well I slept last night, took nothing but an extra gabapentin

Dont do the benzos

The l tryptophan worked for me for a while. Everything works for a while, you just have to rotate them

I was just wondrring if the gabapentin caused insomnia
