Sarah - I think the sleeping pill Carol Ann was taking about is Imovane (zopiclone). It is basically non-addictive (but can be abused). Another prescription medication is Desyrel (trazodone) at low doses is a good hypnotic with little chance of 'hangover effect'. It is an antidepressant, at much higher doses. Non-prescription sedative/hypnotics are chamomille (tea), valerian, or kava kava. You will probably only need a sedative until your body adjusts to the ADDeral (hopefully). Used short term, the herbs mentioned are safe and effective. Ask your doctor about these first, before trying them. Good luck - Cam W.
