Some alternatives: I don't understand the meaning of your last sentence; does it mean you have tried insomnia-directed cbt (as well as attention to sleep hygiene) but it hasn't worked? Sleep aids you didn't mentioned include rozerem, doxepin, and various otc herbal mixtures. Also, withdrawal from some of the meds you mentioned could interfere with sleep. And, i'm assuming you aren't using alcohol in the evenings. ...Read more

No relationship: the medications and the low antibody tigers are not related.See your pediatrician to see if further blood work needs to be done to check for immunodeficiency. ...Read more

Extra Klonopin: It is unlikely that increasing the dose to 1 mg will induce a coma. I would caution you to only take medication as directed in the future. ...Read more

Relax: Melatonin is extremely safe. Walter Pierpaoli, MD, PhD, is one of the leading melatonin researchers in the world. Dr. Pierpaoli says that "Melatonin is so safe you can take it by the pound." I would be more concerned about Klonopin. A recent report in the British Medical Journal reported that even short-term usage of the benzodiazepines greatly increased the risk of later Alzheimer's disease. ...Read more

Natural products: It would be perfectly OK, as melatonine is a natural product that helps your own similar substance work in sleep physiology and "bring down the curtains". It would also work better, if you keep your room dark when you take it. ...Read more

Yes, but: Higher doses of melatonin can actually interfere with normal sleep. Take 0.3 to 1 mg. 90 minutes before intended sleep and see how you do. There is a possible additive effect with your other meds that also can have sedative effects., . ...Read more
