Reported Results
Benefits:   Fell asleep easily without feeling drugged the next day.
Side effects:   None, but the drug didn't last long. It guaranteed I'd get about 5 hours sleep, no more.

Sonata review by 63 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   wakefulness -- difficulty falling back asleep
Dosage & duration:   10 mg taken once a week for the period of last 5 years
Other conditions:   osteopenia
Other drugs taken:   Boniva
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   I was able to go back to sleep after waking and then to get up in two hours without any grogginess or after effects. The sleep I had as a result of the pill was very restful. This drug allows you to take a pill in the early morning hours, go back to sleep and then get up at the normal time without any sort of hangover. It is wonderful.
Side effects:   Better sleep.
Comments:   Upon waking and not being able to return to sleep, one 10 mg dose of Sonata will return the patient to sleep. If used too frequently, I understand that the product will be ineffective.
