Fell asleep quickly but only for 3 hrs. Then unable to go back to sleep. Next day had "drug hangover"...nauseated, headache and felt miserable all day. Everyone's system is so different...what works for one doesn't work for someone else. If it works for you...you are fortunate.

I was on Ambien and doctor changed to Sonata. First first dose I could not sleep and experienced bad headache. Worst was the hallucinations. This is not for me.
