Looking for info on tapering off Imovane or an Imovane Withdrawal program that really works? Click to see some real-life Imovane Withdrawal Success Stories from people who have used Point of Return's Imovane At-Home Withdrawal program to taper off Imovane.


It started with a visit to the doctor with the complaint, “I can’t sleep”.  He gave me the “little blue pill” and told me to take it for 3-4 days.  I did as he said and slept well and then on the 4th night did not take it and had the worst night ever.  In a panic, I took the pill again.  I could not believe it; in just 3 nights I was hooked! 

After that I tried everything to stop taking the pill.  I tried yoga, exercise, natural herbal remedies, listening to sleep CDs and half-hour sleep routines every night!  I went for acupuncture and saw a naturopath, who also prescribed this thing and that (all natural, of course).  But no matter what I tried, the “little blue pill” was the one constant.  I could never stop taking it.  If I did try, my sleeping was worse than ever.  I even went back to my doctor several times and he just told me to cut the pill into pieces to take less and then prescribed me more! 


My whole body was filled with anxiety.  I walked around with a constant knot in my throat.  I was obsessed with the pill and even more obsessed with getting off of it.  The worst part was that I wasn’t even sleeping well on the pill and I began spending my days in what can only be described as a fog.  I spent countless hours researching on-line and trying everything I could, but still nothing worked.  I was desperate! 

Then I came across a miracle; the Point of Return website.  I called them right away and after speaking with Andrea, I knew this was for me.  I thought to myself; how brilliant; someone who finally came up with a plan!  I finally had hope!!  I ordered a start up package and was finally on my way to getting off of the pill. 

The best part of it was it was easy!!  The program just makes sense and very easy to do.  If I had any problems or issues or just wanted to talk about it, Andrea was there for me.  I would email or call her and get an immediate response.  It was so nice to know somebody was there who cared, who could understand and who could offer the advice or encouragement I needed.  Now I am pill free and sleeping great!  I know, with out a doubt, that had I not found Point of Return, I would still be struggling and desperate.

Thank you Point of Return.  Thank you Andrea.  You gave me my life back and I will be forever grateful to you.

Trudee's Imovane Withdrawal Success Story

Trudee (Australia) Imovane Withdrawal Success

The 28th of April will forever be one of the most significant days of my life, and I write this testimonial on the anniversary of the day God led me to Point of Return (POR). What was meant for evil, God has turned to good because one amazing woman decided to dedicate her life to save the lives of those (mine included) who’d all but lost theirs to the destructive grip of prescription drugs.

My torment of despair weakened in the presence of the hope that came from pouring over the testimonials on the POR website. And now, with a joy I thought would be denied me for the rest of my life, I willingly share mine.

I will never forget the day that light shone on the darkness that had descended over me like a permanent shroud. I wasted no time in contacting Alesandra; who quickly became my angel-my mentor-and my friend. My first email, simply entitled, “HELP!” was answered within hours and thus began my journey back to , normality, health, joy, laughter, and fulfilment.


23 years ago I was doing night shift in a nursing home. I couldn’t sleep. My blood pressure hit the roof and despite my abhorrence of drugs, I resorted to sleeping pills after all the natural remedies proved ineffective. I needed to work, and therefore I needed to sleep but the pills only gave me an average of 4 hours sleep per day. My stress levels doubled, tripled and quadrupled as financial, health, and relationship challenges got on top of me. Antidepressants were prescribed and it was a downhill slide from there.

I lost count of the many times I tried to come off the drugs. I suffered a few cold turkey withdrawals; the most traumatic one was a period of 21 days without sleep. I didn’t understand about rebound insomnia and depression then. I didn’t know that our bodies reach tolerance levels soon after ingesting the poison of prescription drugs and I had no idea that it would be virtually impossible to be drug free until I found the answer in the form of a safe, slow rehabilitation program that I could do from home. Following the guidance of the wonderful staff at POINT OF RETURN (POR) I can now look back on this past year in awe and give eternal thanks to God for this miracle.

I am now writing my story in the hope of helping others who, like me had nowhere else to turn. It may only be one small ripple in a gigantic pond, but I vowed that if I regained my freedom (which I now have) I would tell anyone who would listen. This is my prayer. That one more pebble, reinforced by the weighty words of truth and thrown into a drugged sea of despair will cause a tsunami of ripples.

Avanza (Remeron) and Lunesta (Imovane) systematically stripped me of my personality, energy, passion, clarity, health and drive and exchanged them for agoraphobia, chronic fatigue, anxiety, memory loss, brain fog, hypertension and hopelessness. This does not equate to a fair exchange in my book. Our bodies are wonderfully and fearfully made but we cause every system to shut down by resorting to the myriad of quick fixes glamorously advertised and successfully marketed around the world today.

By utilizing the experienced, capable, and highly informed assistance available through Point of Return I have enabled my body, mind and spirit to recuperate. POR’s effective nutritional products alongside their unsurpassed support have given me a second chance.

Alesandra, Andrea, Terry, Wendy and Rachel, you not only changed my life you gave it back to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.



Janet's Alprazolam Withdrawal Success Story

Last February I went to a walk-in clinic because of some upper respiratory problems. After examining me, the attending physician prescribed Levaquin (750 mg. for 5 days). After taking the medicine, I immediately began to experience insomnia. This went on for almost a week. After not sleeping for 6 or 7 days, I began to self-medicate... melatonin, Benadryl, etc. I continued to struggle with sleep for weeks. After reading online that Magnesium could "flush out" the Levaquin, I purchased some and took it. That night I experienced a rapid heart rate and a panic attack.

The next morning I went to see my doctor thinking that I had an emotional issue. He put me on Xanax. The Xanax did help me to sleep so I did not worry about it. Some 3 months later my doctor told me that he wanted me to get off of the Xanax. I began to attempt to wean myself off of the Xanax but was unable to do so. Another doctor suggested that I wean off of the Xanax by taking Lunesta (Imovane). I managed to wean off of the Xanax but then when I tried to wean off of the Lunesta - I was unable to sleep. I knew that I was in trouble and did not know what to do. I got online to try to find out if anyone could help me to wean off of the Lunesta.

I found POINT OF RETURN (POR) . I called and talked to a most wonderful and patient woman called Alesandra. She was so reassuring, especially regarding my total sense of panic. She answered my questions and most importantly gave me hope. 

Over the next several months, I took the POR supplements. What was so critical was learning that I needed to have the Lunesta compounded. This made all of the difference. In addition to this there was a constant trail of e-mails back and forth to POR. Alesandra was prompt and patient with my endless list of questions. Her support was as critical as the nutrients as she calmed my fears of ever recovering from this mess.

I cannot thank POR and especially Alesandra enough for all of her help and encouragement. Because of her and POR, I am returning to a normal life. If you find yourself in a situation like I was in, please contact POR. And most importantly, do what they say. They absolutely know what they are talking about. I don't know where else you can turn than to a group like POR.

As far as I am concerned, besides the struggle getting off of the meds, I needed hope. And I got that hope from POINT OF RETURN. Alesandra, please know how much I thank you for your constant support, encouragement and direction throughout this entire process. I am so glad to know that you are there to help those of us who have struggled with addictive medicines.
