Just a few thoughts...

Both Ambien (zolpidem) and Halcion (triazolam) are extremely short-acting, yet powerful hypnotics. They are like getting hit over the head once with a baseball bat. They put you down very quickly and definitively. However, there is nothing to prevent you from getting up again because nothing is holding you down. You may need to use something that is longer acting, like Ativan (lorazepam) or Restoril (temazepam). An effective strategy is to take both Halcion and Ativan. The Halcion knocks you down and the Ativan holds you down.

Interestingly, it is amnesia that has been one of the most damaging complaints directed at Halcion. But I have seen many people complain about Ambien as well.

Good luck.
