Glutethimide Is The Best Hypnotic

Sadly Glutethimide (Doriden) was discontinued by the last remaining manufacturer Halsey Drug (HD 550 on white round tablet) in late 1992.

sleeping medication ## My husband almost died after taking Dalmane. I believe the doctor is at fault. From my research Dalmane was contraindicated.
