> Hi, I wanted to see if anyone has ever taken Halcion (Triazolam)??? I was given it in the hospital in May and my psychiatrist then was a little leary about giving it to me, but I was having a terrible time sleeping-terrible. She gave me a prescription when I went home and I have been leary of taking it ever since. However, I haven't been sleeping very good at all and was thinking about taking one tonight.

I don't think I've taken than particular benzo for sleep, but I take benzos for sleep *every* night. Apart from a period of time where I did a trial of Remeron, I've been using benzos to get to sleep for years now. The one I use is Restoril (temazepam), but from the research I've done, the difference is probably pretty slight. You may have a slight hangover effect (residual dopiness) in the morning, but you get over it quickly, especially if you just decide to get active.

There is a slight reduction in dreaming on benzos for sleep, but that might be a good thing for some people.

I've been steadily improving in emotional strength, resiliency, and cognitive functioning ever since I started using the benzo, because good restorative sleep is a key component of my well-being. It just took me years to get my doctors to take my complaints of insomnia seriously enough to get them to enter "benzo-land" with me. I really don't understand why the medical establishment has demonized benzos. What should I do, return to alcohol abuse instead?

Just my opinionated concluding my remarks,
Lar
