Perinatal outcome in women treated with progesterone for the prevention of preterm birth: Optimal dose and duration is also unknown. Some consider that concurrent use might increase the risk. The main problem is how tired I get in the day due to these horrible sleeps. Therefore, the difference is that IN administration does not produce rapid high levels of the abused substance and, therefore, reinforcement leading to greater misuse such as the case with other drugs.

Ive tired it my self for sleep and i'll say this i prefer xanax or diazepam for way better sleep and longer duration of sleep.. Jan 22, 7. Hmm my main concern with Alprazolam Xanax is that it has such a short half-life. Diazepam is useless for me. I have been extremely interested in Xanax though, Do you reckon my Doctor would prescribe Xanax for hypnotic purposes? I don't want to push him too far although he doesn't seem to mind prescribing other Schedule 8 meds -- The highest schedule of drugs in Australia before completely restricted.
Reclaimer; do you think it would be worth hitting my doctor up about Xanax for sleep? To be honest I do want to try it for recreational purposes as well but yeah.. Theres been heaps of Xanax vs Klonopin threads for anxiety but i'd be curious for any experiences regarding those two drugs for sleep. I'd rather Alprazolam Xanax rather than Clonazepam Klonopin but I don't want to push my doctor to the edge..
Jan 22, 8. The short half life really isn't so short, I take one at like pm go to bed bout an hour later if that.. You may not be that lucky as your tolerance to benzos.. Worth a shot to ask. Jan 22, 9. I think the half life for clonazepam makes it not very good for sleep. You can take it and go to sleep and wake up and still be on the drug.
This can result in either a really long nap or walking around super high and not realizing it. I think that sedating antihistamines are better for sleep. Jan 22, I feel much more hung over and depressed from diphenhydramine than clonazepam. Temazepam is generally prescribed for sleep, but has a shorter half life. Flurazepam is also prescribed for sleep, but out of all benzodiazepines the hangover is the worst I experienced from this class of drugs.
Alprazolam could work, but many claim it's the most recreational, so there's that risk. Asking for a specific drug is thought by many doctors to be indicative of drug seeking. Sleep hygiene is important. Flurazepam isn't commercially available in Australia. I'm going to ask him for Alprazolam. I realise that its indictive of pill seeking but I have a pretty long and good rapport with this doctor always showing up to appointments, doing tests he's ordered etc. He was more than happy to prescribe me Flunitrazepam when I asked for in In the same schedule as Alprazolam in Australia so I don't see why he wouldn't prescribe Xanax.
I think I'm going to ask for Xanax and see how I go. Alprazolam has a much shorter half-life than clonazepam. Years ago I was prescribed both at different times. So the shorter half-life of alprazolam was better for me - I woke up feeling normal. Clonazepam worked, but it has a long half-life hours. So it would help me sleep, but I would wake up feeling drugged the next day.
Clonazepam also had a lot of nasty side effects for me when taken long-term - such as depression , obsessive thoughts and trouble concentrating. This was taking it nights a week for sleep for a couple years. Alprazolam didn't have any negative side effects for me, but I only took it for a short period of time - my doctor didn't like it and insisted I use clonazepam. Benzos should not be used nightly long-term for insomnia - they lose their effectiveness for this pretty quickly.
I found that when taking clonazepam nightly which I did at first , the sleep-inducing properties stopped working at least at normal doses within a week or two. So when my insomnia was really bad back then, I alternated between clonazepam , Seroquel and then had a couple nights a week where I didn't take anything and just didn't sleep much. In my case, I found that taking St. John's Wort daily along with kratom and some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy pretty much cured my insomnia and I sleep good most of the time now.
I'm addicted to the kratom , but I would rather take it than take benzos. One more thing- you may not realize it, but your regular use of benzos for sleep is most certainly making your anxiety worse. When taking benzos semi-regularly for sleep, my anxiety was very high most of the time. Once I got off of benzos and stopped taking them for an extended period of time a few months my anxiety pretty much went away. Clonazepam is my favorite all around benzo , followed by Diazepam , Lorazepam , and Alprazolam.
The ONLY downfall, is the onset of peak, it takes hours to fully peak. But that doesn't mean that you CAN'T dose hours before bedtime. Clonazepam is also considered a strong benzo , so be careful and be aware that Clonazepam is addictive, and gives a nasty withdrawal that can be deadly, just like most other benzodiazepines. Overall, here's I would rank the best benzos for sleep, in order. Ativan Lorazepam Lorazepam is actually Rx'd as a sleep aid.
It kicks in fast, and is very effective for sleep. It is only Rx'd as a sleep aid. I've had it for sleep a few times, it gives an excellent sleep. Xanax Alprazolam Alprazolam just plain and simple knocks you out. Alprazolam and Clonazepam are equivalent mg for mg. It also gives a beautiful sleep. Valium Diazepam Diazepam is the longest acting benzo , along with Librium.
Both have a half life of up to hours. The best part about Diazepam is that, it kicks in fast, and lasts so long. That's the only reason why I put Diazepam over Clonazepam. Klonopin Clonazepam I would've rated Clonazepam 1 if it peaked just as fast as the other benzodiazepines I listed above. For me, Clonazepam is a mixture of Alprazolam and Diazepam. Jan 23, Damn, I didn't end up getting my regular doctor.
I asked for Alprazolam and he flat out refused, which is fair enough. He reckons its the only drug he'll never prescribe. I also saw him write down on my file that I asked for it. Hopefully my regular doctor doesn't see it and question whether i'm a pill seeker.. Ended up just getting Flunitrazepam. I really wish I had asked for Clonazepam. I probably would've got it.. Thanks for all your great responses everyone.
Given how much trouble I've seen the OP report with sleep in spite of various hypnotic agents, I'd be very surprised if clonazepam happened to do the trick. I'd definitely expect alprazolam to be more effective, but I'd also expect the effectiveness to be short-lived. Especially in non-naive patients, I've seen alprazolam lose it's hypnotic efficacy but retain anxiolytic efficacy in a matter of days of normal use--definitely try to refrain from recreational use of alprazolam if your doctor is receptive to the idea of prescribing it, as it does have the potential to build tolerance quickly and that's the last thing you need if nothing else works for sleep.
It's certainly possible that the OP would find clonazepam to be a superior hypnotic to alprazolam , plenty of people do, just generally not those who struggle this much with insomnia from what I've observed. Maybe I'm biased because clonazepam was one of the first things I was prescribed for insomnia to no avail. Hey Staples, nice to see you again. I think its like a hit-and-miss with a lot of benzos for me.
I posted another thread about how Oxazepam worked so well for general anxiety even though its regarded as one of the weaker benzos. There is no point continuing Flunitrazepam if its not doing the trick. If I stopped taking it however, I know I'd get major rebound insomnia. When I was in hospital last month I was on Pethidine injections an opiate , they took my Flunitrazepam away from me but I didn't care cause the Pethidine made me sleep so well.
I wish I could get my hands on more. But yeah theres really only 3 other benzos commercially available in Australia that I haven't tried, Alprazolam , Clonazepam and Bromazepam. I'm hoping Triazolam will come back onto the market soon but I'm not holding my breath since Pfitzer hasn't really been making an effort to bring Halcion back and nobody else is bothering with generics possibly due to patents. To answer your last question, I'm having really bad nightmare and very vivid dreams so I keep waking up immediately after them.
Probably about every hour or so. I avoid checking my phone so I don't expose myself to light. It then takes me about 10 minutes to get back to sleep then at some point during the night, usaully after the 5 or 6 hour mark, I wake up completely. The main problem is how tired I get in the day due to these horrible sleeps. I never feel well-rested like I should. Even prescribed up to 3mg of Klonopin a day - if I took 3mg at once, I would most likely end up taking a decent snooze even in the middle of the day.
This time I went "cold turkey" and it almost killed me. I had over seizures and was literally bedridden for a month. But I was taking 40 to 50 mg of Xanax a day for many many years. Each time was a fatal dose. Shamefully, I died three times from overdose from all the meds and was thankfully resuscitated. I was on a ton of opiates on top of it every prescribed opiate you can imagine in mass quantaties. All the opiates were prescribed by doctors due to sport injuries, kidney stones, car accidents, anxiety disorder.
I was prescribed 12 mg a day. Look up my thread or replies for specifics. It was hard to tell what withdraw symptoms went with what med, except for the seizures. Benzos and alcohol are the two drugs you can die from if you go "cold turkey". Clean for 5 months from opiates and 4 and a half months for benzos. Two weeks ago my family doctor put me back on 3mg of Xanax a day because my body was not adjusting.
Anxiety, Insomnia, and Panick attacks was the reason I was placed on benzos, so when I quit the anxiety and panick attacks came back with a vengence. Eventhough the doctor prescribed 3 mgs I only take. So I can relate. My mind races at night. I was literally going with 3 to 5 days without any sleep. I took 3 months off of work, so I managed without the sleep.
Now that I am back I need to sleep. This very low dose allows me to get around 5 hours of sleep a night. For me that is heaven. Everyone I have ever known to take Klonopin has had bad side effects. One being that your mouth does not work. I heard Valium is not as addicting as Xanax. When I took Valium it made me feel heavy, but my mouth worked. By the way, a totem is a bar of Xanax broken up into four.
