We used <a href="http://www.narcomundo.com/legal-drugs/anti-anxiety-drugs/g-monster/">G-Monster</a> Saturday night; I used one serving and so did my girlfriend.  My girlfriend got totally different effects from the product than I did.  I just got relaxed and chill; as I do when I did a cap of scoop, but my girlfriend said it was too trippy for her, if we were at a club I think she would have wigged out. Should she cut down the dosage or do women feel different effects from some products than men?

Sleeping pills has lot of side effects. It causes addiction and the power of the sleeping pills reduces over time. later you mkay need high dose to get the sleep. So better not to take the sleeping pills. Try natural methods like yoga and meditation

Sleeping pills dont losse potency. It is your body that is got acusstomed to taking it and so not finding any effect. Try to stop it for a week thentake again after one week 1 tablet. it will work.

I have been taking .05 Clozapine twice a day for a year to treat Vertigo which was quite severe 3 years ago. Meclizine did not help but Clozapine does. In addition to that, I take Ambien 2-3 times a week for sleep. I was also drinking 2-3 ounces of Vodka nightly which I have discontinued. My plan is to wean myself off Ambien but am not sure about Clozapine because when I don t take it, my head starts spinning again.
