Cool! I'll be especially interested to hear about the technology they use, as well as what you learn about your own sleep architecture.

Nice to hear you're not manic...though I'm sort of surprised that you had to go to the hospital for them to figure that out!

What sort of insomnia do you have? Just phenomenologically, I mean. I have mainly "terminal" insomnia - early-morning awakenings - even though I'm not depressed. (The difference is
that I can get back to sleep; when I was depressed, I would start ruminating as soon as I figured out I was conscious.)

BTW I went back and read the rest of the thread. You asked about Cylert in the first post - it's pemoline, a rather mild, long-acting stimulant. It's sometimes used for narcolepsy (so are tricyclics, MAOIs, Ritalin, and amphetamine), but it's not ordinarily for insomnia.

Getting off the Halcion was a good first step in getting the sleep disorder under control - I agree, using benzos for sleep is a trap.
