This is Dr. David

halcion is a short acting benzodiazepine.

it may not work as well for you, but you should try it and see

if ambien is not working for you, you need to see a sleep specialist

ambien CR could work better for you and is longer acting to help keep you asleep.

you should get a sleep study and sleep evaluation

you might benefit from more exercise during the day if you can

have you tried ambien CR before?
