Thanks for posting a query in health care magic.
From the description that you have stated it appears that your mother has depression
with symptom of insomnia. Clonazepam
is a benzodiazepine
and can be given in depression to correct sleep disturbances. There is nothing wrong in using sleep aids for e few months and then gradually discontinue it. Zolpidem
is another option which can be useful.
Hope I am able to solve your concerns.
