I find that this is one of the worst disease to treat. Most drs do not want to prescribe sleeping meds for fear of addiction . even if you do get sleeping meds, you begin to develop a tolerance for it. These sleeping meds eapecially ambien are suppose to be short term so eventually the dr will stop prescribing it. So the drs will try to prescribe off label drugs for sleeping such as trazadone, remeron, and neurotonin so these can be for long term use. I am doing biofeedback and counseling with lunesta for sleep. My anxiety has worsened due to lack of sleep but I do not want to depend on drugs because the side effects sometimes outweighs the benefits. I am hoping to get to fall asleep and get some deep sleep even if it is 3-4 hours. Insomnia is torture epecially if you are young, you just do not have the energy to do anything. The key of insomnia is finding the root cause and getting treatment for it. Drs prescribe sleeping meds as temporary solution . Best wishes to all.
