Hibee that's sort of funny as at my worst I was taking restoril. I went to my first ever neurologist/sleep Dr and he told me my bank accounts were both bankrupt. It's just funny how all of our bodies are different.

I have never found any single med that actually worked like it's supposed to and I have taken a lot over the years. My Dr. just tries to choose drugs that I need anyway that have sleepiness as a side effect. It's not perfect but it's the best overall.
