Anyway, he gave me a script and I was just wondering if it is like diazapam (valium) which I have used in the past. Where when you take it every day it builds up in your system to where you can take 25 or so all at once having no effect whatsoever. This is not a drug abuse question this is an actual question. thankyou to all that answer. Answered by Sona Katt 1 year ago.

Diazepam and estazolam are both part of the class of drugs known as benzodiazepines. Estazolam is immediate acting, whereas diazepam is long acting. This means that they will have different onsets of action and duration of action in the body. I would not advise anyone to take their prescription over the recommended amount outlined on the prescription as written by the doctor. Answered by Corrin Gutteridge 1 year ago.

Been trying to find something that will let me sleep. I have a very stressful job and cannot sleep except maybe 4-5 hours a night, but if i wake up at all, i have to get out of bed for about 30 minutes to be able to lay back down and fall back asleep. I have tried everything the doctor has prescribed and to the point i feel like he thinks im crazy. Wondering what you guys think or have any ideas on getting some sleep. Answered by Anastasia Wilkinson 1 year ago.

I have what you describe, and there are no pills that help. I have learned to go with the flow. When I wake up at 3am or 4am, I get up, walk around a bit, go pee, get a snack, and after a while I go back to bed and finish sleeping. All your doctor can do is give you pills because doctors can't cure insomnia - no one can. If the pills don't work, then the doctors don't know what to do. If you have tried doctors and their pills, then you are on your own. Educate yourself about insomnia and what works and what does not work. Don't make the mistake of thinking there is a pill that will help you - there aren't any. There is an excellent book, Insomniac, by Gayle Greene. It chronicles her search for answers to her own insomnia, and covers everything from drugs to meditation, sleep studies, herbs, and ignorant but well meaning doctors, alternative healing, aromatherapy, etc. A must-read for anyone with sleeping problems. Maybe you will find some answers there, and if not at least you will have a better understanding of insomnia than most doctors do. Answered by Corie Roddick 1 year ago.

What is the best sleeping pill/medicine for a 14 hour flight?
Asked by Azalee Curly 1 year ago.

There are two sort of options- hypnotics or anxiolytics. Hypnotics well help you sleep and anxiolytics are intended to reduce anxiety however often anxiolytics are used as hypnotics. If it is a hypnotic that you want then an intermediate acting drug is probably best. So the follow are drugs that are FDA approved hypnotics, they are highly effective, and they are used for people with trouble falling asleep and/or staying asleep so they can help you get a full "night" of sleep: Restoril (temazepam), ProSom (estazolam), Lunesta (eszopiclone) 3 mg, or Doral (quazepam) 15 mg. I would most recommend ProSom (estazolam) 1-2 mg or Restoril (temazepam) 30 mg For an anxiolytic I would recommend Ativan (lorazepam) 1 mg or Valium (diazepam) 5 mg. Valium lasts longer than Ativan and it is more sedating for most people. Both of these drugs CAN be used as hypnotics and if you use it once that is fine but they are NOT approved for sleep and it is best to avoid using them for sleep. If you are a very anxious flyer and you want medication to be working for the entire flight you would need a couple of doses of Ativan or Valium. Often what a lot of doctors will do is prescribe something like 3-4 tablets of Ativan or Valium and let you use them as you see fit. Ativan 2 mg or Valium 10 mg will typically make people sleep, Ativan 1 mg is a good dose for anxiolysis or Valium 5 mg and you can typically take it every 4-6hrs if you need to. Also if you would rather have fast acting medication so you have more control then Xanax (alprazolam) is the best option for anxiolysis and it typically works 3-4hrs. For sleep Halcion (triazolam), Edluar (zolpidem sublingual) and Sonata (zaleplon) are very fast acting, VERY strong, but they wear off fast. So it all depends what type of option do you want. Most commonly Ativan (lorazepam), Xanax (alprazolam), or Valium (diazepam) are prescribed. Also note that the drugs I have listed are schedule IV controlled substances in The US and they are similarly controlled in other countries. So if you have a history of substance abuse especially to alcohol, barbiturates, Soma, Miltown, or Chloral Hydrate then these medications may not be appropriate. Talk to your doctor about the best options for you. Finally over the counter sleeping pills (antihistamines) like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Unisom (doxylamine) should be avoided due to significant side effects and they are often ineffective. Melatonin should also not be used because it has been shown to be ineffective. Answered by Raye Cruice 1 year ago.

Best Sleeping Medication Answered by Brock Stalvey 1 year ago.

Ahhh, now be careful here. If you take something to make you sleep then you certainly will have an easier flight. However you will drastically increase the risk of a deep vein thrombosis which is something you really don't want. You need to get moving ever couple of hours, walk up and down the plane, do some squat thrusts to get the blood flowing in your legs. Knees to chin (or as good as you can manage). Anything like that to get blood moving in your legs and feet. Don't sit and sleep for that long. For 14 hours get compression stockings as well. Answered by Paulette Mauch 1 year ago.

Hi. Take the most boring book you have on the shelf. Beats taking medication on a flight. If it's just trouble sleeping... it's better that you don't force sleep through medication, you actually want to start adapting to the new time zone as soon as possible. So don't force sleep, you want to get to your destination and then sleep at nighttime there. It's the best way to fight jetlag. If it's nerves, try a relaxing tea, like valerian or chamomile. No knocking out envolved, just helps you to calm down so your body relaxes... and if you take your own tea bags, I'm sure you can persuade a nice flight attendant to make you some tea. They are very helpful for those who are nervous about flying. Answered by Laverna Rivena 1 year ago.

Depends. Are you wanting to sleep because you are scared to fly? If it is just nerves, Valium works nicely. But if you just want to sleep cause you're tired, just take some benedryl or some melatonin. Answered by Ronald Tannenbaum 1 year ago.

Serequel, Trazadone, Klonopin, Lunesta, Unisom, it just depends on how your body reacts to drugs, if you have a very low drug tolerance buy an OTC sleeping medication and if your body can handle sleeping medications see your doctor and maybe get prescription strength.

I seem to need more and more to sleep n relaxe, a mixed drink here and there, is there something stronger that I can rake instead?? I take all these pills at the same time, before bed! Asked by Alonzo Singhisen 1 year ago.

Why yes theres quaaludes for sleep, only available now in mexico, got one one time out like a light. Have you tried barbiturates? always made me feel super great, there's seconal and nembutal still i think, although you may have to deal with mexican pharmacies on these too, and phenobarbital, much weaker, also soma is metabolized a methcarbamol, it is a muscle relaxer, and butalbital. my personal fav since I haven't been prescribed seconal or nembutal. Now I got my doc to put me on prosom which is roughly the strength of 3 1mg zanax it is a benzo. I've heard dalmane is a really strong benzo too. Oh and there is the infamous date rape drugs ghb, and rohypnol (benzo), also only available in mexico. Personally in your case, I'd say quaaludes/seconal are the only thing that will put you out. But you'll have to order them online and sometimes they check packages from other countries, and if you don't get it you paid full price and lost it. The max dose of neurontin which is a seizure med for taken at once and that is 3.2 grams and. usually helps me too. also working out helps you relax, like yoga.Lunesta 3mg worked for sleep for me for a couple years. Also have been prescribed 1 1 mg sonata 3 10 mg valium 4 2mg ativan a day. They all tend to stop working after a while. Hope this helped! But 14 mg of klonopin is way too much, you better be careful with that, what the lady above said. I also have a few drinks at night to help me get to sleep. I know where you are coming from! edit: every night I take (these are all prescribed) and insurance completely pays for pays for except for alcohol, kind; 1 2 mg prosom 2-3 350mg soma 2-3 shots of 80 proof liquor or 2 7.5% beers do yoga or work out 2-3 times a week 4 800mg neurontin ! 50mg atenelol (blood pressure med also used for anxiety) sometimes a zanaflex if my back really is in knots occasionally a little of the kind occasionally a feneryl (nausea med) doesn't help me go to sleep but it makes me sleep an extra hour or two trust me I've got all this figured out (AS I WRITE AT 4:15 IN THE MORNING) Answered by Meghan Whorley 1 year ago.

Um, honey, don't you just end up running out half way through the month? You litterally cannot do that. That's also a whole lot of klonapin. Be careful. Stopping 13-14mg of klonapin suddenly could be...unsafe. Stopping more than 4mg would cause you withdrawl. That's a lot over 4. Talk to your doc. Maybe he'll just give you ambien or something. Or trazadone. however, take THOSE kinds of things as directed our you could hurt yourself. I'm a sleep tech now and the ONLY death in our whole company was someoen who went into a coma after 2 ambien. Oh! Or melatonin? Answered by Clara Binz 1 year ago.
