I wonder if 125mg tablets of acetazolamide might have worked better. That's what I take when I'm having trouble sleeping at altitude and it works like a charm.
I made him go to the doctor and they prescribed Xanax. I found that 151 made him sleep better
Still has my whistle though.
Just because a doctor prescribed an anti-anxiety medication doesn't mean it was the appropriate treatment. I was once prescribed a tranquilizer for what turned out to be esophageal reflux. The appropriate medication that I eventually got was cimeditine, a stomach acid inhibitor. The first doctor had me (wrongly) pegged as an anxiety case.
But if 151 worked for your friend it's unlikely that his problem would have been helped by acetazolamide. I wonder what his story was?
