    Well it's good that it may increase sedation if a person is not getting to sleep!
    I recommend a glass of beer + 1 klonopin + melatonin. LOL

    I am taking a benzo and I sometime take a sleep aid with a very low dose of melatonin. I do not intend to stop. I think I'll pass on the beer, though. ;) I just thought people should make informed decisions.

    I use darkness therapy to get my body to produce its own melatonin instead, and it works a treat. On the rare occasions when I need something else to help me sleep, I'm fine with a benzo. I don't drink.
