Sonata doesn't show up in a drug test. The drug works by making someone fall asleep. It doesn't prevent them from waking up during the night. It should not be taken unless someone has at least 4 additional hours to sleep. People have driven in their sleep, walked in their sleep, etc. while taking it. It is a Schedule IV Controlled Substance (others are phentermine, Ativan, Klonopin, Tramadol, Valium). Do be aware that it is illegal to take someone else's prescription medication.
You may want to try something like melatonin (available at every drug store or big box store). It is a natural hormone that helps a person fall asleep.
