hi, we had the same problem with Dad, he was prescribed both temezepam and zopiclone for sleeping but they were too effective and left him sleepy all day, herbal remedys did not work either. In the end it was the community matron who sorted it by pointing out that it was anxiety and depression that lay at the root of the problem. Trying to knock out an anxious person is difficult. She phoned the doctor and told him what to prescribe (she really did; we were in awe). He now takes antidepressants and his sleeping is much much better.
