 1  For medical procedure Anxiety Was wide awake and shaky the entire procedure F 45 1 days
.25mg 1X D
 1  Dental anxiety Dizziness, drowsiness, head ache, memory loss I was supposed to take halcion for major dental anxiety. I have emetephobia and suffer from panic attacks. I took a pill night before and 1 hour before procedure. It did not help one bit. I still suffered several panic attacks at the dental office and was extremely anxious and aware. I couldn't finish all of the procedure because My panic attacks wouldn't stop. After going home, the side effects made me sleep for several hours. Also the memory loss side effect did not work at all for the appointment as I remember everything to the detail. I experienced memory loss for everything AFTER the procedure. M 20 1 days

 1  Dental anxiety Halcion was prescribed the me for dental anxiety. Took as prescribed, .25mg the night before and .25mg one hour before. It never "kicked in". I felt every minute and was aware the entire time. Dentist had to stop and we are going to try IV sedation next. Do NOT recommend halcion. Didn't resolve any of my anxiety, was lucid the entire time. After the procedure it made me very sleepy, but did not help at all during. F 26 2 days

 5  Dental work Sleepiness, amnesia, stumbling This paired with nitrous oxide at the dentist was a miracle. I have extreme dental fear, and am a nervous wreck walking into the office. I think I slept through the whole thing because I only remember arriving to the office, taking the drugs and leaving. Which was exactly what I wanted. I got home and slept it off. Worth it! F 40 1 days
.50 mg 1X D
 1  Full dental extraction of all teeth 1 pill 1 hour before appointment, never felt any different than normal. Dentist put 1/2 pill under my tongue still did nothing. It started kicking in 2 hours later as I got home. Waste of time! F 32 1 days
.25 mg 1X D
 5  Insomnia ABSOLUTEY NONE I use a sleeping aid 2-3 times per week. Ambien (zolipidem) 10mg works fine but feels like a drug and leaves me grumpy next day. Xanax (alprazolam) 1mg left me with a slight hangover Halcion (triazolam) 0.25mg is awesome. Just like falling asleep normally. No hangover, no nothing. M 59 30 days
0.25 1X D
 2  dentist, tooth extractions my legs were weak after, hands were shaking (due to nerves or due to halcion i have no clue), a bit of tiredness I remember every moment of the dentist appointment and i think it only started to kick in after my appointment? I still remember absolutely everything that has happened today. only after when getting medicine did i realize my legs were weak ( which also might be due to them shaking during the procedure?) who knows F 18
.25mg 1X D
 1   Truthfully taking this drug is a huge health risk... it was designed for anesthesia pre-operative. If you are taking this at home and come to abuse it... well, there is your answer. I am always looking for safe sleep aids. This is not one of them F

 5  for dental procedure...3 crowns at I had difficulty walking and amnesia for the rest of the day. I was given an extra 25 mg at the start of the dental work so a total of (3) 25 mg. I was able to hold conversations that made sense but don't remember anything although I told them I knew where I was and what I was doing. I don't remember the rest of the day. I am very very anxious about dental work and difficult to deaden my mouth enough. They had no problem with me and I had no pain with Halcion and injections. F 63 1 days

 1  couldn't sleep after my mother's death I took halcion to stop nightmares/anxiety after my mom's death.i quickly started abusing them to cope.i was taking them all day long and losing huge chunks of time.i was taking 6-8 (0.25) tablets at a time and would be standing talking one minute and keel over out cold the next.im shocked I didn't die.i hit my head on the bathroom counter passing out once.i got pregnant with my daughter (and when I found out there can be missing digits and limbs from this medication...I quit cold turkey.i didn't sleep for 2 weeks.But I never took them again.and my daughter was perfect because I did the right thing.I think this medication has a huge abuse risk and everyone should be really careful with it.

 2  Insomnia Severe nightmares, continued insomnia, amnesia and depression. Didn't help for my insomnia at all, I slept for maybe 1-2hhrs on it, and that was if had been up for a couple days already. So I got a total of 4-6hrs of sleep every week. M 18 1 months

 5  Dental surgery Grogginess, some amnesia. Took one tablet the night before surgery and it helped me sleep. Took two tablets an hour before surgery and it worked great. I was relaxed and groggy during surgery. Don't drive. Someone needs to take you to and from appointment. F 60 2 days

 5  Tooth extraction and uncovering Nausea, dizziness, stumbling Felt like really hard core drowsy medicine, but I puked about 15 minutes after taking it. Luckily, I didn't puke up the meds. It did make me a big goofball. I was laughing at everything. I enjoyed my experience over all. I basically knocked the heck out and don't remember much. I had that plus Nitrus oxide plus novacaine for my procedure. If you feel nauseous, tell your doctor! Mine gave me some Zofran and I was good to go F 18 1 days

 5  anxiety,nerves,sleep no side effects I was given this drug originally for sleep. I discovered that it improved my mood and calmed me down. I then asked my Dr. for additional doses that I could take during the day and he agreed with the caveat that if called upon would I testify what it has done for me. I would still be taking it for the fact that I lost my job and insurance. Now my health care has been taken over by the V.A. and it's impossible to get from them as they dont listen to patient's who want to be involved in their treatment. Now I am back to square one and suffering while being prescribed drugs that have a minimal effect on my well being. M 65 10 years

 1  Dental visit No memory from 8 am until 9 pm. The dentist halted the procedure halfway through. I was snoring completely out. Horrible experience! I'm not sure if I was over dosed but we called the morning of the appointment to verify the dosage. It was 4/.25 mg pills 1.5 hours before the procedure then 2/.25mg pills an hour into it and the another 2/.25 mg pills two hours later. M 45 1 days

 5  Root Canal Retreatment I was super nervous about my root canal retreatment but I was in a lot of pain. I took .375 Halcion 1.5 hours before procedure and they gave me a little more when I got there. I was completely relaxed after 15 minutes. I don't remember the needles or most of the procedure! It was great! F 37 1 days

HALCION  (TRIAZOLAM):  This medication is used to treat a certain sleep problem (insomnia). It may help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and lessen how often you wake up during the night, so you can get a better night's rest. Triazolam belongs to a class of drugs called sedative-hypnotics. It acts on your brain to produce a calming effect. Use of this medication is usually limited to short treatment periods of 1 to 2 weeks or less. If your insomnia continues for a longer time, talk to your doctor to see if you need other treatment.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
