... Another sleepless night last night, I finally got a few hours after I took a valium, which I hate to do because I can't stand the way it makes me feel when I wake up. I tried everything before: Over the course of the night I took .6 milligrams of the catapres! Didn't work. I took 100 mg trazadone, didn't work! Only the valium, a narcotic, seemed to work. I was so frustrated, I... (14 replies)
... Mic, you have gotten some sound advice. I you are taking one a day, then now is the perfect time to stop.

... Thanks for the reply, Reach. Fioricet is a pain medication (brand name butalbital) . . . pretty sure it's considered a controlled substance but is not an opiate.
