I am on Elavil and Neurontin for neuropathy. Both make me insanely tired. Before that though, I got a prescription for Ativan that I would use if I could not sleep. It also really worked for me and I still use it sometimes if hubby is snoring too loudly
I am a very anxious person by nature, and just knowing the Ativan is there if I need it helps me to not panic if I can't fall asleep. I don't think I have ever had to take more than 8 in a month, which is good as I understand your body can start to "need" them to sleep if you take them too often.
