I give up completely!! I have suffered with insomnia for over a decade. Tried ambien, sonata, lunesta, klonipin, ativan, xanax,valium, valerium, benedryl, sleepaid, and almost every other sleep remedy under the sun. At first a few of them work and then back to the same old sleepless nights. I am tired of taking drugs, suffering from side effects and still not being able to sleep. I stopped the drugs a few days ago, and I actually slept last night. (not great..but better than before) I think stress and anxiety contribute to insomnia. I have been reading a book written by Dr. Claire Weekes called "Hope and Help for Your Nerves". She gives great advice on controlling panic attacks and anxiety and there is an entire chapter on "sleeplessness". I feel that if the anxiety decreases, sleep will definitly improve. Any input??
