I've been on benzos, Ambien, Sonata, Trazodone (eww I HATE Trazodone), Chloral Hydrate (long time ago), Seroquel, Atarax, Benedryl, etc etc.
The problem is either the med is too weak to get me to sleep and my docs are too conservative to increase the dose - or the med is too sedating and I'm late to work.
I bring up Nembutal (barbiturate) and there's no way they'll prescribe it for me (although I've been on it before when I lived in a different state - different doc) and it's the BEST sleep I've gotten EVER.
So, yeah, I need to have a sleep evaluation - but what to take to help me sleep in the meantime?????
