"I don't have trouble falling asleep but 2-3 times a week get up at 3am and have difficulty falling back asleep until it's time to get up. I tried Ambien and Lunesta but with both I was still up at 3am. Dr gave me Doral because it supposedly is the best drug for a full night sleep. I LOVE it. No side effect of hang over or drowsiness the next day. I only take it every other day and only on weekdays. So 30 tablets last me sometimes all the way through 3 months. I don't feel like I have to take it every night so won't get addicted."
"Doral has been a big help for my insomnia. I used to take Ambien and it would put me to sleep, but find myself up again at around 2 to 3 am. With Doral, I am able to enjoy 7 to 8 hours of sleep. I am also able to take it only when I feel the need for it, unlike with Ambien when I would feel compelled to take it nightly because when I tried stopping it, I ended up not sleeping at all. It felt like they made it so that you couldn’t stop taking them and get you hooked on it. I’m grateful to my doctor for listening to how I felt and prescribing me Doral."
"I have no idea how it works. I don't feel much of an effect when I take it. I want it to help me fall asleep, but it only helps me stay asleep. I take 15mg a night with no hangover the next day. Don't let your pharmacy say its discontinued! I get this medication mail ordered to my house."
"After trying countless drug my Neurolgist prescribed Doral which worked like a charm so that I fell asleep sometimes with 1/2 tablet and woke up the next day rested and ready to take hotel and restaurant pressure. It is by far the absolute best sleep medication I have ever taken , for unknown reason it was discontinued, it has been a rocky road ever since for me to sleep. I am survivor of massive brain tumor which took 7 hours to remove, Doral saved my work career and family life ."
"This medicine works perfectly for my otherwise 2-3 sleepless night per week! My psychiatrist prescribes me 22.5mg, right before bed, a bit more that the recommended dose of 7.5-15mg. (I'm a big guy.) She warned me not to take it more than 3 times per week, or else dependence and tolerance would almost certainly develop. Rarely (about every three weeks) I need 30mg; my doctor knows about and approves of this. I find it especially useful after a long, late day at work. I usually get off of work between 11pm and 1am. On occasion, I have to wake up early, after a late night. Without Doral, it would take 2 or 3 hours to relax, and although I would prefer the natural route, I don't always have that luxury. It gives me a deep 7-8 hour sleep."
"I have taken Doral for a long time. My Doctor tried every sleep medicine on the market. I take Parnate, an MAO Inhibitor that affects my sleep center. When Doral came on the market I was put on It. Doral worked great. I could purchase it with My Medicare card through 2013, but no more. My doctor appealed and was denied because it was not on the market now. I sure wish It would get back on sale as I would be grateful. "
