I've been having trouble sleeping for quite a while. First I was on Lunesta which worked well but gave me a horrible metallic taste in my mouth which was not worth it to me. Then I was on Ambien, but no matter how much sleep I got I was still tired all day the next day and could fall asleep at any time during the day. My doctor gave me some samples of Silenor which has worked really well!

I've tried them all and the problem with Ambien and Lunesta is that I was loopy the next morning. At least with Silenor 6 mg here I stay asleep for around 8 hours and wake up without the nasty baggage.

I was given a sample of Silenor after talking with my doctor about my problems with the generic I take for Ambien which was only being able to sleep 4-5 hrs and not being able to fall back to sleep after waking. I took Silenor on friday nite knowing I didn't have to work the next day. Well, Silenor did not help me fall asleep and then when I finally did fall to sleep I had nightmare after nigh ...

Comment:
I tried Silenor after taking Ambien for several years. My problem is actually falling asleep, rather than waking up in the middle of the night. Using Silenor to try to fall asleep is futile. I did not notice the drug helping me at all with my insomnia. What it did do was make me groggy the next morning for several hours. It said not to eat anything for 3 HOURS before taking Silenor; how reali ... Show Full Comment
