For the record, although it's not used much anymore (due to hangover effect), flurazepam is still one of the best hypnotics for those who have trouble staying asleep.

Cam:

This comment reminds me of my one and only experience with Dalmane. It was given to me back in about 1982 by an emergency room doc after I went there having not slept for three days (wish I'd known then I was suffering from panic/anxiety-sigh- but I digress:) Anyway, I have to agree that it was the most powerful hypnotic I ever took, but boy it did leave a hangover! The docs just don't seem to prescribe it anymore, instead they give Ambien (3.5 hr. half-life) or Sonata (1.5 hour half-life) with the result being the mid-night awakenings so frequently reported on this Board.
