You could take temazepam (Restoril) instead of lorazepam if you find it more helpful. I doubt you will find a doctor willing to prescribe triazolam, though.

I would be concerned about sleep quality with benzodiazepines. I forgot the details, but I think most benzos inhibit REM-sleep. In my personal experience, sleep on midazolam (Dormicum; a short-acting benzo like triazolam) was worthless. Z-drugs (eg. zolpidem) have less adverse effects on REM.

As for anti-histamines (like quetiapine), other options are cyproheptadine (Periactin), doxepin, and trimipramine (Surmontil); they last of them has been reported to increase REM-sleep.

Much needed in psychopharmacology!
