... I've been on Ambian, and then Ambian CR, both only kept me asleep continuously for about 4 hours at night, I'm recovering from an auto accident, and have ADHD, and am staying with family that is loud and in a cold house, the conditions are so that I need to stay or be on something to sleep better and tune out sound/light, I'm going to ask my Dr. to shift me to a 100 trazadone,...

... Thanks for everyone's replies. F or the past 2 nights my trazadone dose has made me sleep (100mg). I (for whatever odd reason), seem to build up a tolerance to sleep meds quickly so I hope this 100 mg dose keeps working!!:) (12 replies)
... I will try the Trazadone and hope it helps. If not I will ask the dr. about Lyrica. I tried for months to not take anything for sleep except some melatonin now and then. It did not work. ... (12 replies)
... why trazadone? try a different medication for sleep. any benzo derivative will help i guess but then you need to increase and increase the dose. lyrica also suppose to promote sleep, it just stopped working for me. my doc increased my lyrica dose i'm now on 150mg...it still doesn't work. without sleep i just cannot function.

... Do you know anything about the half-life and how long it works in the body as compared to Ambian, or a true short-acting sleep aid? (12 replies)
...

... I was told I could take 50 mgs to 150 mgs. I tried all 3 doses and I found out 100 works best for me. 50 wasn't enough and 150 made me too tired the next day. If you can take Trazodone it is good. My doctor says it's a mild prescription. (12 replies)
... Some time ago I was prescribed temazepam for my insomnia and it worked well for me, but after awhile the daytime after effects bothered me too much so a different doctor prescribed ambien which was designed for insomnia relief (unlike many for which sleep is a side effect). I used it sparingly and now I fall asleep easily without medication. Things change, luckily. But... (12 replies)
... I take 50 mg. It doesn't make me fall asleep; it just helps turn my brain off for a while so I can go to sleep. I think it takes a while to get used to the meds. The first night I took it, it took a few hours for me to fall asleep. Usually, it takes 1-2 hours for it to kick in, at least for me. (12 replies)

Any input would be appreciated. (1 replies)
