I have been taking restyl 0.5 mg*2(Alprazolam) tablets for over 20 years, I am 50 years old now and recently my doctor advised me to switch to nitrest 5 mg*1(Zolpidem). Would you please let me know if the dosages are one and the same.

I've read that if you have lupus, that because Rozerem acts in similar ways to melatonin, that it should be avoided. I have SLE (lupus) and like to study various sources, check with a variety of doctors, check with my doctors - I haven't tried Rozerem, but only because my doctor prescribed Zolpidem for me when I need it and it has done well for me. Thanks for this comparison post. I deal with anxiety as well, so this is helpful info!

My weght loss doctor prescribed this to me to help with sleeping. I found for me personally I sleep walk with this medicine. I have conversations with my kids and will not even remember the next day. My daughter says she knows when I take the pill because my face looks different...like my muscles are relaxed. I stumble like im drumk. For some reason I feel the urge to sleep coming om but for some reason I fight it and find stuff to do that needs to be done around the house. Like I have anxiety about going to sleep. I sleep eat...which defeats the whole weight loss attempts. Sorry for any misspelled words. Typing this on my phone. I should be sleep now cause I took a pill...but once again I found something to distract me from falling asleep.its weird and hard. Its like I jave to allow myself to fall asleep but I was so use to falling asleep where ever or when ever I wanted to. Mow taking the pill is a form of adding structure to a sleep pattern and I rebel necause its new to me. Cutting off the t.v. causes anxiety somehow. I guess we have to train our bodies to a routine so eventually we wont need the meds. Just my thought
