  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Insomnia)
  • Side effects
    None

    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I was prescribed this by my PD doctor for insomnia and it worked if I took it about an hour prior to going to bed. I had to stop taking it because I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis and put on a medication for pain that prohibits me from taking the sleep medicine with the pain medicine.

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Insomnia)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 30 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I began taking this medication (Restoril) to help me sleep through the night. It's a cheap alternative for Lunesta and Ambien, which I couldn't afford. But, something's better than nothing. Besides, I'm an extreme morning person, so waking up at 3:30 a.m. is becoming my new norm and I'm adjusting.

Jun 8, 2009 (Started May 15, 2009)

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Insomnia)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (Waking up during the night, Hangover effect)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 15 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I just started taking this medication on 5/15/09. I am not sure how well it is working because I still wake up during the night and still don't feel rested. It has helped a little but I wish it helped more. I will ask the doctor when I go back but that is not for a couple of months so I will keep taking it and see if it improves. I have noticed that if I am woken up (by say my kids) I am very groggy and can't mentally focus on what is going on or being said and then I usually don't remember it in the morning unless it is brought up to me by someone else.
Side effects: Slow to wake in morning, Waking up during the night, Hangover effect
