> No one seems to report success with it except me, or respond to my posts recommending it :(, but Gabitril is a good sleep drug. Probably not as good as high-dose ambien, but it's not a controlled substance and has none of that antihistamine effect that seems to perturb you. I gave 12mg to a friend once who was suffering from insomnia and she told me she had the best sleep she'd had in years, with no residual grogginess like she experienced with the Seroquel I gave her (I used to be an 1890s-style amateur pharmacy, where the pharmacist prescribes, heh, I'm surprised I didn't start handing things out in 'grains' and 'drams'). Gabitril has a 7-9hr half-life, so it is fairly well-suited to this application.

I took some Gabitril one time at around 7, went to sleep (don't remember doing this, just remember feeling like a truck hit me in the bathroom) and then awoken at 9 completely disoriented to time, place and person at the ripe age of 19 in my college dorm room. That was a year ago. Good thing I sleep on my periods of psychosis, and awaken to my same old self. Oh, forgot that time when I was psychotic and paranoid a few times from pot and Vicodin.... yes, yes, remember that night and the other night a little too well.
