A.Sleep disorders expert
Usually when you want to get off sleeping tablets you need to expect that your sleep will be a little worse for a few days before it gets better. So start by going to bed much later thna you currently do - at least 2 hours later. Then drop 1/4 of the sleeping tablet. Take the 3/4 of the tablet about 30 minutes before going to bed to sleep. Expect that your sleep won't be great for the next few days but it should get better after that - usually takes 7-10 days. Because you have squeezed your sleep up to fewer hours you increase the chance of falling asleep at least for some hours during the night. After 10 days you should be sleeping fairly well - then you can decrease by another 1/4 tablet - again it will take about 10 days to sleep better. Take it very slowly but squeeze your sleep into shorter hours.
