> 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.

I thought that Roche took Dalmane off the market -- does anyone know for sure?

Anyway, my trick is to take Ambien twice a night -- once when I go to bed, and then again when I wake up in the middle of the night. (Unfortunately, I need 20 mg of Ambien -- 10 just doesn't do anything -- and you can imagine how eager most doctors are to prescribe 40 mg of Ambien per night.) Other people might do better to take Sonata after awakening again.
