No, my MD here in CA did not prescribe it, she did mention it as an alternative idea, but prescribed the Ambien. I don't think I'll need it so much to go out and get a prescription for it. I hadn't touched the stuff since college, let's just say it's gotten a lot more medicinal since those days.
Again, sorry PSF if it sounds like I'm making light of your original post, I'm honestly not. It just sounded to me like we might have been in a similar situation/state of mind, and this particular "cure" did well for me. And don't worry, my hair is still short, I'm still clean shaven, and I still can't stand the Allman Brothers.
