    Hi Everyone,


    Just a short question for anyone who knows if there is any difference in the sleep med, dalmane and restoril?
    Are they the same and if not what are the differences?

    Thanks alot,
    Hugs to all,

    I know that restoril is a benzo (valium derivative), but can't remember what dalmane is. It's an older drug,and not many prescribe it anymore.

    I used to alternate the two, and found Dalmane to be stronger; sometimes I would add restoril & got too many nightmares with it, so have stopped.
