Many people enjoy drinking alcohol. Do you think some may find chloral hydrate likewise pleasant?

I liked zolpidem as well. I've never tried triazolam, but I've used another short-acting benzodiazepine for sleep (initiation), namely midazolam (Dormicum), which appears to be available in the US only as injection (Versed?).

Later, I seemed to become resistant to sleep aids, at least zolpidem and temazepam.

Antihistamines don't work as hypnotics for me, as they don't make me sleepy, but they do make me tired and/or apathetic, so I guess they help me fall asleep sooner after all -- it just takes an annoyingly long time, in contrast to how midazolam and zolpidem used to work for me.

Ah, I see. That ("based on nothing") was never my intention.

I think I was thinking along the lines of definition 2. Not "fair", not "right", not "legitimate", not "kosher".

You seem to be disagreeing based on your definition of "arbitrary". You thought I meant something else than what I intended. Maybe "arbitrary" isn't the best choice of word -- what would *you* call it?
