Dear Jane,

I found 1.0mg of Halcion (triazolam) to work well, and I never had the slightest problem with memory.

> > 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.

> With halicon (or ambien) it still takes 3-5 hours to get to sleep by 2-3AM. I did have a very scary event on ambien of leaving the house and driving to the store at midnight. I didn't remember anything but my teenage son was frightened. Obviously I'm "grounded" at night and now I'm halicon, 0.25mg., with 25mg elavil and ultram at night but that combo doesn't "put" me to sleep or keep me asleep. Right now I'm just feel better that I can remember today on halicon; I couldn't remember this morning on ambien (interestingly I've taken as much as 40mg ambien and not been able to sleep)I haven't tried the ativan mix; that may be next but right now I just want to settle in on this drug-mix.
> thanks-jane

Try 1.0mg of Halcion + Ativan. You will fall asleep in less than 5 hours. I guarantee it. Well, no. I can't guarantee it, but I bet you do.

Just because Ambien affects your memory does not guarantee that Halcion will, even at high dosages. Halcion used to be available in 0.5mg tablets so that it would not be too inconvenient to take a couple of grams. Upjohn decided to cut their numbers in half in an effort to avoid a media blitz against Halcion for the sorts of things you describe. I think Ambien may even be worse.

I found 1.0mg of Halcion (triazolam) to work well, and I never had the slightest problem with memory.
