The dr. I saw said I would slepp "well" if I worked at night, but as things are, I am a single Mom to a young one, who I have to get up with every morning. Basically, he said I would have to learn to live around my sleep pattern rather than trying to make my sleep pattern fit my current schedule. I'm not sure he's right, as I've slept soundly the past five nights with no trouble at all. Sleep is so elusive. I will never give up trying to be "healthy". But, where to next, what meds I might try....I'm not sure they've been invented yet. Meanwhile, I'm getting off the meds that have made me sick. I have not done well with Halcion and Ambien (bad amnesiac effects and withdrawal problems), but have done well with Restoril (in exceptionally high doses, not recommended for anyone). Either way, I'm hanging in there listening to other's experiences and hoping mine will be helpful to someone as well. - Shell
