    well americas number one perscribed is ambein ha. In personal
    experience, me being a chronic insomniac, the best i have tried was
    probably ambein. Thats if you are only counting things made for
    sleep, otherwise i would say this seroquil (anti psychotic), or vals
    (benzo). The one with the best results as in side effects,
    hangover the next day, and effects (recreational) would be
    ambein. Even though i have some crazy ambein mishaps. What
    do you mean though as in best sleeping pill for fun, or best for
    sleep? I answered best for sleep.

    For me , it's Zopiclon.

    Never liked Ambien, made me feel all weird and have freaky dreams and shit..

    Zopiclon is a great sleeping pill and fun for recreational use IMO.

    Ambien is good, but I always felt groggy the next day.

    Right now I'm perscribed a bunch of seroquel. This helps me sleep,
    along with other problems. It feels like "real" sleep, too. And I'm
    very refreshed in the morning.

    i too am on seroquel right now and i agree it works good. Just
    got it perscribed a few days ago so i cant really speak from too much
    experience. I never felt tired with ambein the next day thought,
    but i guess thats just me.

    Zopiclone is great, minus the metal taste the next day... three 7.5mg knocks me on my ass fast. I have a chat log and in 9 minutes I went from totally comprehensible conversation to mashing the keyboard trying to talk about my dreams I was having (I was having micronaps and waking up and trying to tell what I dreampt about but it was just garbled crap)

    damn that stuff sounds good. I might ask my doc about that if i
    find my sleep med isnt for me. How is the following morning,
    drowsy? I need a sleep aid that will make me wake up refreshed
    and alert, because about 30 minutes after i wake up it's lifting time.

    It definately makes you tired the next day.. the half life is quite long. Also, it's not available in the states... well legally anyways.

    diazepham & melatonin for me!


    Not sure ifit is goodcombo for that get psychotic episodes. Melatonin does not connect with the dopamine receptors - but do not know if it triggers a cascade of other hormones that then eventually will trigger more dopmine release - so something to look into before trying - or take it up with your psychiatrist.

    I think ambien has the best after effects profile. What I mean of course is the best LACK of hangover effects if what you really want is just to sleep. I really don't see Ambien as a recreational drug

    If you feel tierd the next day make sure you get a good 8+ hours of sleep. other sleep aids like Sonata work for around 4 hours so it will get you asleap but wont keep you asleap as long. it also dosent work as well for getting you to sleep as ambean eather, but i think it dose a good enouph job. you cant really tell the diffrence on quallity of getting to sleep between 10mg ambean and 20-30mg sonata other than sonata takes awile to kick in.

    Trazodone: 300 mg, Trimiptrimine: 300 mg, Oxazepam: 60 mg, Seroquel: 100 mg.


    Seroquel works the quickest, however, Oxazepam is the only drug out of the four that I have found that can actually provide you with a recreational high. Personally I love Oxazepam, but my doctor is reluctant to prescribe it.

    The most powerful hypnotic still in use is clomethiazole AKA
    hemineverin. It's a glycine receptor agonist rather than a GABA
    agonist. Downside is histamine release. Upside is it feels like
    your drunk!

    1.GHB, works incredibly well and it doesn't feel like a deliriant just
    a slow euphoric nudging to sleep if you keep the dose low, you wake up
    feeling like a million bucks. Very natural feeling, not like a drug at
    all.



    2.Phenibut, relaxes you so you're able to go to sleep naturally, this
    will not put you down you have to be willing to try and sleep.

    GHB! My favorite incredible sleeping aid.. no hangover and it works real quick.

    Only accident i had with it, resulted from measuring my regular dose
    from a glass which was standing at my desk for about a week.. OPEN!

    Half the water must have had evaporated. Woke up flat on the stairs 5 hours later [​IMG]

    Some people seem to find it addictive but i never had any problems with that.

    If GHB was commercially sold in pressed tablets, perhaps the non sodium
    forms which aren't hydroscopic you would not see so many problems with
    accidental OD.



    How is valerian root? Anyone used it?

    i have a polyneuropathy called guillian-barre swim possibly contracted
    from heroin use. it is an auto-immune disease which means, bascially,
    my immune system attacked my nerves to the point where i have no
    sensation. its been a long road but everyday my nerves feel a bit
    better.

    last night after snorting up all my ambiens, i was forced to take a
    seroquel 100 for sleep. it worked great for one hour but i was woke up
    with sensation shooting up the right side of my body. i felt the worst
    i have since ive gotten sick, almost to the point i wanted to go to the
    emergency room, but what the hell would they have done for me though,
    so i didn't go. if you're one of the 100,000 that becomes ill with an
    auto-immune disease jesus don't take seroquel
