    Sorry if this is a double post, I thought I previously sent it but it doesn't show up.
    Anyway, has anyone taken Halcion? Since Ambien didn't work for me my doctor prescribed Halcion today and I am scared to take it after reading about the side effects.
    Any experiences out there?

    I will be anxiously watching this post too. I have had halcion perscribed for me for an upcoming dental procedure and I too am a bit nervous, especially about the idea of acting "goofy" on it. It does have some scary side effects listed too.

    Re: Halcion

    I've taken Halcion several times over the years. Never had any "side effects" to speak of (certainly nothing like I had with anti-depressants). Only trouble I had was that I would often awake after about 4 hours feeling groggy, and unable to get back to sleep. It doesn't make me "goofy", because if I take enough to put me to sleep I can't possibly stay awake long enough to feel "goofy".

    halcion works great, no side effects. You may have trouble a night or two after you stop taking it
