Customer Question
If you went to the...
If you went to the ER is it possible that they would give you just one pill while you were there to help with insomnia? I asked the question because I haven't slept in three months since my mother died and I've been on restoration and it's not working that my psychiatrist prescribed and I thought maybe if I went to the ER and they gave me one pill of something different that would possibly work I could tell my psychiatrist when I saw them? And if I went to the ER and they just gave me one pill I know I would have to bring somebody with me and would I have to show proof of some kind to my psychiatrist because generally if they just give you one pill they don't give or have any evidence that you got that medication. Also, the hospital I would go to is the closest one and it's not the hospital my psychiatrist is connected to and I would have to go to the closest one because I'm so sleep deprived. So basically what I'm asking is what they prescribed just one pill for the night? Also, what I have to show some kind of evidence that they gave me that pill for the night?

Hello again. I am sorry that you are still struggling with your insomnia. The ER will most likely not be able to prescribe you a Controlled Subdtance like Ambien, but they can prescribe you a Non Controlled Substance like Trazodone or Seroquel at a low dose to help you sleep. You can also show the prescription for Restoril as proof that you are being treated for insomnia.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
