drug is safe long term.

Your doctors can easily switch you back.

There is no reason not to if one works better.

However, they should find out what the underlying problem is, for example, with a sleep study.

Ambien is more for falling asleep.

Termazapam is more for staying asleep.

They should consider this as well.
