Hello flowergirl. I would ask your doctor to put you on another benzodiazepine, but from the sleep family. Either Dalmane or Halcion, will give you a deep, restfull sleep. Diazepam, although also a benzodiazepine, was created for anxiety disorders. Best of wishes along with good health to you,pledge
