Hi Gal.

> What do you think about all I have said???

I think it sounds like you need something to help you sleep.

If you decide to stay with medication, it seems like Ambien would be your best choice. You reported having success with Ambien without experiencing any memory difficulties, so it makes sense to choose it over Halcion. For me, I never liked the idea of using Klonopin expressly for sleep. It stays in the body too long and can be depressogenic. I think Ativan makes for a better sleeping pill.

Halcion has been used primarily as a sleeping pill, but is being used by some dentists to sedate their patients. I think the amnesia is a good thing here! I don't blame your being skiddish using it. It is probably best to use it as a last resort.

Some people on Psycho-Babble have had success using a magnesium supplement at bedtime to enhance sleep. Just don't use magnesium oxide. It pretty much just passes through the system without being absorbed. I find magnesium glycinate to work well. You should find threads devoted to magnesium in the Psycho-Babble archives using the search function.

Good luck.
