Also put stomach asleep so swim lost weight ala phen/Fen.
Swim no longer uses Zolpidem
A few beers and 1mg gador xanax
will induce swim to sleep.
Swim did take Seconal,Nembutol,Tuinal many years ago
and they were more effective than ambien.

I fully agree with that. Temazepam
is a pretty good hypnotic as well, but after a while, or in very severe cases of insomnia, it doesn't work well enough. In those cases, fortunenately flunitrazepam
does indeed do the job. Though after a long period of use, like all benzo
's, even flunitrazepam loses it's effectiveness, not just due to tolerance, taking a higher dose still won't work after extended periods of usage. I noticed something very weird though 2 months ago when I still took flunitrazepam once in a while. When I took my dose, I felt it come up in 10 minutes and it had hit my like a brick wall in 20-30 minutes, almost making me pass out. I wasn't even capable of brushing my teeth anymore, I just dived straight into bed. But 2,5 hours later I woke up again, feeling extremely lethargic but unable to fall asleep again. I would be unable to fall back to sleep the rest of the night and morning, unless I took my dose of midazolam, which I just took as there was no other option. Really weird that it didn't keep me asleep, but instead I always woke up a few hours later, on the verge of falling back asleep again, but not actually falling asleep, especially because flunitrazepam is long acting.
