Well there you go.........I will have to try that too. As for Ativan I used it but in a big dose and did not wake up, slept like a baby. I suspect you are not getting good enough sedation from your dose to keep you sleeping. You might ask to try Valium as it is a longer acting. Depends on your schedule too. Ativan is often chose for short acting and wears off before morning so you can go about your day.
I used to get nightmares but I just ignored them. They were not so frightening as theme repetitive.
Ask you physician if your not gettin rest too.
