> How peculiar it's not marketed in the US? I assumed all popular benzos available in the UK would have been available in the US at some point for obvious reasons. I never had any particular trouble getting a script for nitrazepam in the UK though, there were no parallels drawn between that and Rohypnol since nitrazepam is so much weaker. According to Ashton's chart flunitrazepam is ten times more potent than nitrazepam, which is the same potency as Valium/diazepam. Half lives are:
> Nitrazepam 15-38h
> Flunitrazepam 18-200h
Thanks for that extra info, I'm just so glad I can get it in Australia but I have to admit I find it much, much stronger than valium even though 5mg of Mogadon and Valium are considered equal. Rohypnol is still prescribed here too but it's impossible to get. I tried to find info about mogadon on nearly all the US medical sites. Particularly for drug interaction but it's not listed anywhere because it's not available. I have used it on and off for years and it's a hands down winner in the sleep dept. Nothing else has ever come close except for seroquel but that was just horrible for next day sedation to the point where I couldn't function at all.
