> Please help with any suggestions. I am withdrawing from Halcion. Eeeks. Over a period of months with my drs. guidance but would like to know if others have had problems with this drug and what can be done to 1) sleep without it, and 2) alleviate the distress related to withdrawing. I really just want some sleep. Thanks.

Have you tried cleaning (I mean like your ENTIRE house or apartment). In otherwards a good physical workout. But the cleaning offers the bonus of seeing what you've accomplished, and having a cleaner environment.
I find that an hour of hard aerobic exercise goes a long way for stress (or distress) reduction and subsequently or additonally for the sleep. My advice would be to start exercise program, 1/2 hour 3 days a week, preferably aerobic because it has much added health benefits (especially for heart and lungs). I think it has also been found to promote sleep (not necessarily right after the 1/2 hour) but through the release of body chemicals, but I'm not positive of this, you should read-up on exercise and anxiety/ sleep problems on the web.
I hope this is a helpful suggestion!
