Sonata Sleeping Pill
With a international flight soon, i will try to get ativan for the flight. To sleep good while there, would 1-3 mg of melatonin or sonata be better ?
I would start with: Melatonin taken about two hours before your desired bedtime. If that does not work, you can use 10 mg of sonata if prescribed for you and in this situation i write may repeat x 1 if you wake up and have at least three hours of sleep time left, so you can take another and go back to sleep within about twenty minutes. Have a great flight and a happy new year. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No, I do not believe: It would work well. Work with a psychiatrist or sleep doc to transition you to another med like trazodone. You should have a psych eval and sleep to look into other causes of insomnia that may be underlying your dependence. Once off meds a trial of cognitive therapy for insomnia could be very helpful.

Do you need to?: The first question I must ask is why do you feel you need both? Have you tried either one alone? Did your doctor advise the combination? You should let your doctor know your plans since melatonin could combine with OTHER drugs you could be taking that you didn't mention and that could be problematic.
