Has anyone tried Sonata (Zaleplon)?

Recommended Posts

I am extremely curious about Sonata (Zaleplon). It has an extremely short half life, which I like, and the maximum dose is 20mg. I usually need 20mg of Ambien for it to work but my psych will not prescribe that, but with Sonata there is a chance that 20mg could work for me. I rarely hear this medication discussed...any experiences at all?

yes. Im not a fan. if your issue is u cant fall asleep. This will help. It comes in punches you in the face, knocks u out cold. But it is totally out of your system very quickly. It will not help you stay asleep. This med can be used for ppl who wake up at 3 am, cant fall back asleep and generalyl get up at 6am. thats how quick it clears..............

 

so i guess it depends on your issue.......

I agree.....I haven't used it, but according to everything I know about it, it works best for people who have trouble falling asleep, but doesn't work as well for sleep maintenance, due to it's extremely short half-life.

Guys that sounds perfect for me. I have no trouble staying asleep, the problem is just getting there. I think I might ask my psych for Sonata instead of Lunesta next time I see him. He prescribed me Ambien again and this time it made me sleep walk and sleep text. Kinda cool... But also not cool. LMFAO.
