Our expert says:
Stilnox is one of the newest and safer variety of sleeping med, which is just as well ! The older varieties of sleeping med were much more addictive and caused more broad problems than Stilnox is likely to do.
Stilnox is designed to dissipate its effects early on, and thus not to have the long hangover effect of a Dromicum or other older varietal.
The good news is that you're almost certainly not a gonner for sure ; though, if you consider the folks you work with to be monsters, maybe that's not such good news for you ? What can happen, and may have happened here, si that you can become chemically "used" to the effects of the drug, which may actually be having relatively little actual cemical efect , but psychologically dependent to the extent of (a) expecting not to be able to sleep without taking the tablet, and (b) sleeping better after takling it because you are convinced that this will happen.
Wouldn't first Prixe in this, be the ability to sleep well without any tablet or other med at all ? Maybe try skipping a night now and then, maybe Friday or Saturday, and see if you don't sleep as well without it. If so, skip another night a week, each week, till you're clear of them. If you find you really miss them, then they'll probably do you no great harm, though uit might be worth discussing this in time with your own prescribing doctor, to check this out in the perspective of all he/she should know about your physical and health situation as a whole.
