Has anyone heard of new sleep med, Quviviq

I’ve been on a benzo flurazapam for 3-4 years. Now they don’t manufacture this drug anymore. So, my psych doc prescribed a new med for sleep called Quviviq. Has anyone heard of it? Can you give me some feedback? I’m a little concerned about benzo withdrawal.


My insurance doesn’t cover that one. With a GoodRx coupon it’s over $483 per month

Sorry I posted this, never hear of that med


Daridorexant at a dose of 50 mg (the maximum recommended dose) showed significantly greater drug liking than placebo … in recreational sedative drug users.

Have you ever tried melatonin with L-Theanin? Just wondering.

Hey @rosyd734 Welcome to the forum! Glad you found us!

I use Solgar melatonin 10 mg. It helps a bit.

A few tips on things that confuse newbies:

Cake day is the anniversary date of when you joined.

The 1515 or other numbers at the end of peoples posts are because there’s a 15 character minimum to post. So people put 15s after until they get to the minimum characters to post.

I take Quviviq.

It’s very similar to Ambien without the weirdness.

It just makes you sleepy.
