    I took half a sleeping pill about half an hour ago, and they're supposed to take like 10 minutes to kick in so after 15 min (75 min if you include the hour before i took the pill) of lying in bed I got up and came online to look stuff up on Google that I couldn't stop thinking about.

    Suddenly I realized I was hearing music. Not loud music, but as if playing faintly in the background. I tried turning my computer volume up and down, but nothing changed. I thought maybe somebody was playing it outside, but I live in the suburbs and practically nobody is out past 9pm.
    Then I remembered that a side effect of the sleeping pill if you don't fall asleep right away is that you can hallucinate mildly.
    I've had a couple of visual hallucinations that were kinda freaky and scared me, but this one isn't that bad.

    Have you ever had hallucinations?
    What were they like?
    Did they scare you?
    Were you expecting to have hallucinations when you did?



    in b4 anduru is crazier than ever

    Have you ever had hallucinations? Twice
    What were they like? Heard a horn, and my name being called
    Did they scare you? It was odd
    Were you expecting to have hallucinations when you did? Not at all

    DARHHH ANDURU IS CRAZYERR THEN EVER

    The above were in the daytime.
    I used to take an antidepressant that made me see scribbles on the walls when I woke up. It was like I was still seeing dream remnants after I woke up, but it faded after a few seconds. It was unpleasant because it looked like bugs and I would just shut my eyes until it went away. On better days it was crossword puzzle grids on the walls.

    I wonder what med you're taking. It's not good to lay in bed for 75 minutes. There's like a window of sleepiness and if you lay in bed too long, it's like your brain stops trying to sleep. In any case, try taking the pill 15 mins before going to bed.

    If you don't fall asleep within 30-45 mins, get up, read or check emails for 10 mins then try bed again.

    Novo-Zopiclone.
    I went back to bed and almost fell asleep a couple of times but haven't slept yet, it's pissing me off.

    This is a bad idea. I've read that light from computers and televisions screws up the body's natural ability to sleep, confusing it to think it's daytime. Shut them off 30 minutes before bed and read a book or something.

    This would explain why I never sleep. Makes sense. I'm addicted to the computer though so I literally cannot put my laptop down.

    oh zopiclone, it is my friend. I rarely see it, but it helps me when I do. When we meet, I get in the mood to play Bob Marley's Jammin', (and I don't like reggae normally), and then I drop off to sleep tout suite. DOn't think I've ever been awake through pill taking.

    I've heard conflicting reports about its addictiveness. I really only take it if I need to sleep at a different time of day, just in case.

    Tomorrow if you can't sleep on your own, get up, do something mellow, take the pill, go to bed exactly 15 minutes later and see how it goes.

    About the computer screen: it may be bad, but since it's all I look at all day, x 10 years I don't think it affects my sleepiness. But I'm a freak.

    Maybe...

    The wind blows pretty constantly out here. When you're tired, you can sometimes hear music or voices in the wind. The mind tries to make patterns out of the chaos.

    When I'm pruning fruit trees all day - exhausting work, looking up at the bare branches against the sky - I close my eyes to sleep at night and see the branches spinning around my bed.

    A couple of other times I had weird experiences while in bed, trying to wake or sleep, which were probably more like lucid dreams. After one episode of multi-day sleep and exercise deprivation, I could clearly feel and hear the (deceased) family dog climb up on my bed and curl up against me.
