Other people might do better to take Sonata after awakening again.

Hi Elizabeth,

Roche no longer makes Dalmane. However, Mylan is making generic flurazepam and it is available. I was given flurazepam in the early 80's and it worked great-especially if you have trouble with early morning awakenings associated with depression. The "hangover" wasn't that bad actually. However, beware of alcohol! You can drink a beer the next day in the afternoon and it will knock you on your ass!
