I'm assuming you mean what would replace halcion. There are several sleeping pills and then meds like trazedone and amitriptyline. They aren't sleeping pills but work well for sleep.

Would xanax be ok for a sleep agent. I have Adult Still's disease its like rheumatoid arthritis. I stay in constant pain and halcion was given to me so my nerves would sleep as well.What drug would you recomend?

I was prescribed Halcion in the mid 80's and it does knock one out. Surprised you found a doc to prescribe it in todays world. It is highly addictive and hardly used any more due to the fact it was linked to many deaths in late 80's. Its going to be a rough road, as they simply don't make sleeping pills with the same properties any more. I suggest tapering under dr advice and get it out of your system before trying another sleep ad. Changing straight from Halcion to another will not work. Another med could be used after the Halcion is out of system. You may need a different type of med... Been there, Halcion was the best, but, once off it, seems very hard to find same kind of med to give same results. You may have your lower your expectations of what you need.
