30mg works well when I can devote 8-9hrs of sleep during the night, still feel a little drowsy when I wake up, but it wears off fast.

After years of insomnia, I tried many grugs including ambien which had me sleep-cooking and driving. Dalmane works for me, no hangover but i do wake up sometimes depressed to dispair. It passes after i get up and move around. I wonder if it is the Dalmane ?

Started off on 60 mg, first night I slept 8 hours, which was good for me. The bitter taste in your mouth doesn't seem to go away. Second night on 60 mg, I only got 5 hours of sleep....not impressed, maybe tonight will be better. My Dr told me to give it about a week.

I take 30mg of dalmane a night. I still wake up periodically but am usually able to go right back to sleep after a couple of minutes. I find that it does cause some crazy off the wall dreams but I can't sleep without it. I used to have to have the tv on every night to fall asleep but since taking this medication it doesn't matter if the tv is on or not. Most nights I can fall asleep within 10 minutes of taking this drug.

Very ineffective in comparison with barbiturates

Comment from: Tom, 45-54 Female on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: January 03

i work night shift so when i go to sleep in the morning, i can only sleep 3-4 hours. I take Dalmane only on occasion and it works perfect! I sleep 6+ hrs and wake up very refreshed. I HIGHLY recommend it to night shift workers who cannot sleep long periods during the day

took about 3 hours for sleepiness to kick in after taking it. left a metal taste in my mouth the next morning. i can deal with the odd taste for a goodnights sleep.

I took Dalmane for the first time last night at 9:00 p.m. It made me vert antsy and I was thrashing around in my bed a half an hour later. After that I slept very sound until 9:00 this morning. Haz anyone else exhibited thsws side affects. Ambien does the same thing.
