It has a half life of about up to 1-5 hours, its very short acting normally for sleep, Halcion should dissappear fairly shortly as Ed says.
But I disagree on opiods for dental pain. Percocet, or was it Percodan... oh my god was that stuff hilarious, and probably the only psychoactive drug I've ever taken in my life with the exception of my first experience with Ambien that I enjoyed. 4 wisdom teeth under local bupivocaine (remind me next time to actually have something to eat, I almost fainted from the blood... but back to something more pleasant...)... 50 minutes later and at home, for about 3-4 days, it was the ****, I tell ya! Cartoons were oh so funny before I passed out. No dental pain afterwards.
Some people don't respond to opiods, or certain opiods due to genetic reasons. And for small dental operations, 800mg of ibuprofen t.i.d. to q.i.d. is allright, but wisdom teeth -- give me percocet!
