Comment:
I'm probably the only one here for whom triazolam worsened his insomnia (in ways)... although it'd knock me out just fine, within 2 hours, I'd wake up partially and have parasomnias (i.e. abnormal sleep -- this includes sleep paralysis, open-eye hallucinations, and other not-fun stuff). I would also have extremely vivid dreams (occasionally nightmares). My liver and kidneys run throug ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I've had sleep problems for 14 years. Avoided prescrip. drugs for years then finally tried: diazepam, rhohypnol, Ambien CR, Lunesta, Trazodone, Elavil.

I've been taking .25 mg of Halcion for 3 nights and still wake up in the night but less and ... Show Full Comment

I am not a fan. I f ... Show Full Comment
