In brief: No
If you have a sleep disorder, you should speak with your pmd and get a thorough evaluation.
Anesthesia is only used safely in the hands of trained professionals with the proper equiptment and medications.

this is exactly why Michael Jackson died--by use of a drug that should only be used as part of an anesthetic under the care and constant monitoring by people who know how to use the drug and know what equipment to use.

I am wondering what makes you ask such a question, i believe the answer would be logical as general anesthesia is used only in operating rooms who would anyone prescribe chloroform in these days unless you are trying to buy it over the internet and get answers from the medical profession.

An evaluation by a board certified sleep medicine physician would likely be of benefit for you!

I would look at the national media as to why that is a really bad idea.
