One of my professors who is a sleep expert mentioned that benzos can screw up your EEG for months or even years. However...

My experience with antihistamines as sleep aids is that I build up tolerance to them within a few days. And when I tried cyproheptadine, it worsened my mood. Whereas Ambien still works and I've been taking it for years, practically every night.

I think this guy sounds like he's scaremongering too.
