    Session 4

    My GP has given me a few temazepam 20mg for SOS nights when I really need a sleep. I've conducted week 1 of the course, so is it okay for me to continue with the pills as I progress with the course? I, of course, want to get shot of the pills as quickly as I can.

    Hi lacolocha, don't worry, the Prof will guide you through it! It'll be your choice though how to put the techniques into practice so they work best for you.

    The only problem I can see is that when I have had those pills you really need to sleep them off or you feel rough the next day (rougher than just tired) so might be a problem if your sleep window is too short…

    Yes I have had a few thought about going to bed later or getting up earlier, about all that lovely time to myself I would have that I don't get enough of normally!

    justrelax… great question. The Prof will guide you through this over the next few sessions. We know the course works equally well for many taking sleeping pills (and we know that the course helps many people to reduce their need for sleeping pills ultimately) but you should always check with your doctor before making any changes to your medication or if you're at all worried about your health. So as long as you've checked with your doctor this is not something to worry about at all…justrelax…

    Just completed week 1 earlier this afternoon. Really can't wait for the next installment! I'm guessing we must be at a very similar stage?
