Was not sure where to post this, so I guess this seemed the best choice. I thought there used to be a health forum or something like that? Anyways...

I've seen my general doctor yesterday about sleep medication and he was reluctant at first until he heard how many hours i've been sleeping the past few weeks (3-5 hours or nothing).
So from what I understand is that most sleep medication is highly addictive and only works for a couple of weeks?
He mentioned a couple of names like Temazepam and Zolpidem if i remember correctly.

Does anyone here have experience with this stuff? Or knows of a good site where I can read about the pro's and con's of every med? It would of course be preferable if it doesn't make you drowsy during the day...

Any advice is welcome!
In the howling wind
Comes a stinging rain
See it driving nails
Into souls on the tree of pain
From the firefly a red orange glow
See the face of fear
Running scared in the valley below
