    Who takes em? What do you take? I got some free samples of Silenor and it doesn't do shit. They say take one 30 minutes before bed and I'm still up 3 hours later watching TV or posting.

    Ambien once in a while. Once it helps you get back on your normal sleep schedule you don't need em anymore.

    That knocks me out too much, 3 or 4 hours in a coma and then up for the rest of the night.

    Oxazepam and some herb. It's not that I'm not tired, just can't turn the noodle off. The Oxazepam does the trick and I wake up fine - not groggy.

    I've taken them all.

    Ambien works the best and that's both good and bad. When I first started taking it, it was like a miracle. The wonderful drowsiness would ooze over my body like a warm bath of tranquility. I would wake up ~ 7 hours later with no hangover. Finally.

    So what happens next? You take it again. Then again. and again. To the point where you find yourself more or less dependent on it. Next you build up tolerance. What used to be 7 hours is now 6. Then 5. sometimes less.

    You avoid tolerance by weening yourself off on certain days. Some weeks it's 4 days a week. other days it's 5 or 6. You always want to squeeze in more days but the problem is the days you don't take it, you don't sleep at all.

    what I've semi-figured out is that I take ambien during the week, especially Sunday nights. But on Friday and Sat nights, when I can sleep in the next days, I skip the ambien and take OTC Unisom. It too gives you a decent night sleep but you're groggy the next day until the afternoon. It's a trade off but it keeps the ambien tolerance at bay.

    good luck

    Heyooo! Its not bad. Taste wise, its incredible. Truthfully, for as much as I can smoke, Im a bit of a cheap date on edibles. 50mg is a perfect amount for a night on the couch, but I little much for social interaction (authors note: Mrs Chigs doesnt count as social interaction).
