Iím happy I saw this. Iím on sonata now short term, been using it only for a few days so far and no noticeable side effects. Iíll make sure not to use it long term or use it very intermittently if I use it longer or something.

Re: Which sleep medication works for you?

Desyrel 100mg Trazadone
Ramelda 8mg Ramelteon (Turkish version of Rozerem)
I use these ones daily , if i really need sleep asap , i add 2.5-0.525mg Ativan Lorazepam

When my doctor realized , Z-drugs(Imovane,Ambien etc) are not much effective for me
He presc. Ativan
I checked benzodiazepine table and Z-Drugs are not equal to small dose of benzodiazepines
Like 10mg of Diazem , but 1mg of Ativan is equal to 10mg diazem
So when i take 2.5 mg Ativan , it knocks me out pretty strongly
