    I know a ton of quads suffer from insomnia.

    Im currently taking Ambien, 10mg to help and it did a great job for awhile but has lost its effect. My dr is thinking of switch me to Mirtazapine OR zaleplon.

    Im wondering what your guys opinions are of them?

    Dual purpose? Pretty strong meds for sleep unless used for other indications also. Ambien- recommended to be used only for short term. We use Trazadone- works as antidepressant and sleep. Elavil- antidepressant and also pain properties.
    Melatonin for a natural sleep.
    For all start low and increase as needed.CWO
