I have an allergy to codeine and certain types of morphines (past surgeries) that causes me to be more awake and hyper. Since taking zaleplon, I have had a similar reaction. Is it normal for the medicine to take two hours to kick in? I love how you don't feel groggy in the mornings but it would be nice to sleep some too!

Hello onlyadaydreamer. I was reading up on the drug, zaleplon and several people also seem to have the same problem. They lay awake a bit before actually falling asleep. Most all say that they awaken with little if any side effects. Top of this page if you like, enter zaleplon, then once on the following page, you might click on user reviews and read up on thier comments. Best of wishes,pledge
