What do you all think about using Oxazepam for insomnia? I'm so tired of trying these "sleep meds" Ambien-worked for two weeks then stopped, Ambien CR--never worked at all, now using Rozeram--has worked but I need special permission from my insurance company, in fact, they made me get a scrip for Sonata first -- which I have and only have taken it once so I'm not sure it did much ... but now I have to have the doctor re-request the Rozeram since I did get a scrip and tried the Sonata ... crazy insurance rules ... I had taken Oxazepam in the past -- two times for narcotic withdrawl weandown program ... I know I slept like a rock while I was taking it ... was curious if I should just ask for this one instead of all these others? thoughts?

Personally, I wouldn't because oxazepam isn't used for insomnia; it's actually a benzo that is used for alcohol withdrawl and for anxiety. One of it's side-effects is drowsiness. There are other sleep meds you could try, however. Lunesta, restoril, melatonin, and silenor are just a few. Good luck.
