Which of these two is better for sleep without grogginess: chalcion / prosom (estazolam)?

Benzodiazepine : Unfortunately, the risk of grogginess is essentially the same with either drug as they are both benzodiazepines. In my clinical experience, it is very difficult to predict which patient will have grogginess or not as we all metabolize drugs differently. ...Read more

Ambien, prosom, restoril, and lunesta (eszopiclone) don't work for me. What sleeping pills could I take that would work?

Ambien, prosom, restoril, and lunesta (eszopiclone) don't work for me. What sleeping pills could I take that would work?

Is estazolam good for sleep?

Is estazolam good for sleep?

Not good sleep med: Sleeping pills should only be taken here and there, now and then, not everyday for weeks/months/years.

A big day ahead, a lot of work, and have to get some good sleep. Is it effective to take estazolam tablets?

A big day ahead, a lot of work, and have to get some good sleep. Is it effective to take estazolam tablets?

In my opinion, no.: Estazolam or "prosom" is an fda approved hypnotic agent meaning it promotes sleep. It has a rather long half life so it is still likely to be having some effects the next morning. For this reason it is also used to treat anxiety and for the same reason you may not wish to choose this sleep aid. Sporadic use of another hypnotic with a shorter duration of action might serve you better. ...Read more
