Our expert says:
Newer sleeping meds like Zolpidem have been designed to get you to sleep, and then to wear off before morning, so you don't wake with a hangover and sluggish. Early morning wakening occurs in Depression. Trepiline is an antidepressant ( though 10 mg is too low a dose for that use ) - but it is sedative and can thus help you to sleep longer. It doesn't have the risk of dependency like Ativan has. If one is routinely taking a drug like ativan, it can affect the way your body handles other, similar sedative drugs, and might even make them less effective at the usual doses
