Saw my pdoc on Thursday and asked for trimipramine. Am having endrocrine testing done soon and so he said no: trimipramine decreases cortisol and increases prolactin.

Maybe after testing is all done. I really need to sleep well and I have a hunch trimipramine would do it.

Came away instead with ambien and vistoril (the name sounds like it ought to keep you up to see the vistas). Ambien is like sonata for me except lasts 5 hrs instead of 3.5. It also, at least on the first try seems to have less of a drugged feeling the following day. Vistoril is just hydroxyzine a sedating anti-histamine and that is weak weak weak, but not as drying out as benadryl and I did actually sleep for 7 hrs last night with it so I can't say it doesn't work, it just didn't have much kick to it.

I'll be trying to rotate ambien sonata benadryl and hydroxyzine to avoid becoming dependent on sonata or ambien (which are enough like benzos to have at least some dependency potential, despite all the advertising that says they aren't benzos.)
