Comments from or about the patient:

In 2011, there isn't much assistance in the way of get a Prescription for an actual Sedative that will put you to sleep. I used to be prescribed Nembutal 100mg Capsules before the sales had fallen so low it was withdrawn from the market practically around the world. Here in North America the alternatives to Benzo's e.g. Halcion (triozalam), Restoril (temazepam), Dalmane (flurazepam), Ativan (lorazepam), Valium (diazepam)
ARE drugs that act VERY similar to the above. They are called the Z drugs, some are:
Ambien (zolpidem)
Lunsta (eszepiclone)
Imovane (zopicolne)
Sonata (zalaplon)

There is also old fashioned Chloral Hydrate, not that effective or Rxed these days, and Phenonbarbital is the only Barbiturate left, and it is prescribed for seizures . Also in the United States only there is Seconal (secobarbital) a fantastic sleep aid. However it isn't commonly prescribed and costs something like $150 for 20 Capsules. I think that taking a high dose of Miltown (meprobamate) is the most sedating drug you can come by. Apart from that I find Restoril (temazepam) 30mg x 2 Caps (60mg) at bedtime the most effective of the Hypnotic Benzos. As I already take Klonopin (clonazepam) 2mg TWICE DAILY.
