I have resigned myself to a 10 mg ambian,  Generic brand is Zolpidem....10 mg..It does not always work though... but when I am really on the edge and its been horrible thats when it kicks in and works good.... I do not take it nightly or I would be quickly hooked....Cause i do treasure sleep and it feels so good to get to sleep....

It can leave you with the hang over effect but les then other things at least thats my feeling.. I tolerate this better.

Thanks Karen...got given Diazepam...havent given it a go yet as i want to take when i know i dont have anything planned the nxt morning as i really struggle from hang-over effects too. I think i tried a similar one which was Zoplicone which didnt work for me.

Hi Neil, sorry to see that u had a bad night last night...hope u finally managed to get some zzzzz'ss

Well, I hope you get some sleep Karen. I'm off to bed, no need for socks or water bottles here :) It's a mild 22 degrees Celsius (~72 F).

Hello everyone, I know I am reviving quite an old topic but I am looking to ask something.

Does anyone know anybody who finds it hard to sleep at night in London?

Or anyone with Insomnia?

(I am working on a project and would like to get more people involved)

Thank you.
