Night Terrors

Has any research been done in the area of the sleep disorder commonly
referred to as Night Terrors (Parasomnia)?

I have been diagnosed in a sleep lab and after many drugs the _only_
one to work is KLONOPIN and 2mg. per night.  This has surpressed all
abnormal behavior.  It's odd how Klonopin has anticonvulsant
properties yet with current diagnostic tools they didn't show any
seizure activity.

I'd say there's some direct cause/effect between the anticonvulsant
properties in Klonopin and the supression of my Night Terrors...but
little research has been done.

Any comments appreciated...
