I am on Lorazepam for a number of years and it is not working as well as it was and I am thinking of changing but need something to also help me sleep too!
Xanax - Does this also help you to sleep better if taken at night before bedtime?

I’ve taken Xanax in the past and it made me sleep, but not sleep well. I’d wake up still feeling tired and drugged. I took it at night before bed, usually. Klonopin, which is another benzo drug, works fantastic for me. Good restful sleep and and no drugged feeling. I could take a half dose during the day if I needed to without feeling drowsy. Everyone has different reactions to benzo drugs. Klonopin (clonazepam) is what works for me. I hope this helps.
I was addicted to Ambien and Xanax for some time now and there's no doctor who's willing to continue you on these types of drugs. They going to refer you to a psychiatrist and to take an antidepressant like trazodone or mirtazapine for sleep. Just being honest and hope this info helps.
All benzodiazepines are mild sedatives so it should help you sleep.
