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 (zaleplon) be better ?

In brief: Ever try Propranolol

Propranolol is prototype beta blocker used to treat anxious conditions including phobias (eg.
Fear of flying, stage fright, fear of public speaking, etc.). Would recommend a small dose trial if no contraindications (i.e. Check with your doctor) before necessarily going to benzodiazepines such as ativan (lorazepam). In some patients melatonin works well but dose sometimes needs to be higher than 3mg.
