RAMELTEON: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Insomnia: “I’ve been having terrible insomnia for weeks and asked my sleep doctor (neurologist) for something to help me. He prescribed this and I am incredibly disappointed, especially since I had a difficult time getting it approved by my insurance. It literally does nothing for me. I laid in bed for hours as usual and probably didn’t actually sleep for more than 30-45 minutes. I took a second pill, and actually feel MORE AWAKE. I don’t understand why this is even on the market.”

Rozerem (ramelteon) for Insomnia: “Just started this medication tonight. Have been up all night. I am sure it takes awhile to straighten out your sleep cycle. I will stay with it to see if it works down the road. Will be worth it not to be addicted to a medication to sleep. Also think I will try Valerian Root”

Rozerem (ramelteon) for Insomnia: “Took Klonopin, Amitriptyline or Xanax for 15-20 years as aids to cure insomnia. Got off all of it a month ago, have had HORRID withdrawal and INSOMNIA since. Tried everything my doctor and I could think of to help me sleep. Just started Rozerem last night. Went very well and am hoping this is IT!! Love that it’s not habit forming and I can continue to take it as long as needed. Hoping I will be able to eventually sleep on my own without any prescription meds.”

Rozerem (ramelteon) for Insomnia: “This is a terrible medication. I have been taking Trazadone for insomnia for many years. I wanted to try something different because Trazadone causes fatigue. I did not sleep one wink after taking this medication for two nights, and my body ached throughout the night. I don’t know how this medicine was ever approved for sleep. I feel terrible today. I will “never” take this drug again.”

Rozerem (ramelteon) for Insomnia: “I took Rozerem twice for sleep and it had the opposite intended effect on me. Both nights it kept me wide awake and my mind was razor sharp – Not what I needed :(“

Rozerem (ramelteon) for Insomnia: “Second time I’ve tried this and again does not work. Was hoping the first time maybe I should have stayed on it longer. Used Zolpidem which worked great but insurance wouldn’t offer it anymore so tried Rozerem for 1st time. Have tried Edluar which started working for me and the supplier is out???? Back to the only one left which was Rozerem and it’s been 3 nights of no sleep UGH”
