> It takes me about 2 hours or more to actually fall asleep and then I wake up two or three time a night. I've always had mild insomnia, but it is getting worse. I tried Trazadone about 2 years ago and, 1/2 of a 25mg pill worked, but I was a total zombie the following day. It took until noon the next day for it to wear off. And, it made me feel very depressed after a few days of use. I figure if I can just get 2 or 3 nights of good sleep, then I will be fine for awhile again.

After a few nights of insomnia, I like a high(er) dose of Ativan 1.5~2 mg. I find it has a really good kick on the front end that puts me right to sleep, but it is short acting enough that it doesn't leave me groggy the next day like other benzos. I also find that it helps to "normalize" my sleep patterns -- after 2 or 3 nights I am able to fall asleep and stay asleep through the night without it.

Good luck!
