It is awful not sleeping. I am having good luck with Lunesta but I have to take it a long time before I want to sleep. None of the sleeping pills work fast on me. Ambien worked but it gave me terrible stomach problems and I already have enough stomach problems. I, also, convinced my Doctor to give me .5 Xanax but it really gives me such vivid dreams that I am worn out when I wake up and don't feel rested. If I take .25 a while before bed I can sleep and then if I wake up and can't go back to sleep I take another and that seems to work better but the Lunesta works well for me. Another thing I have found and I have no idea why this works for me is to wear a sleep mask and I sleep more soundly and don't wake up as often. My room is dark so I don't know why this works. I think it is psychological. I started wearing this when my husband died suddenly and I wanted to escape from my thoughts and it seemed to work then. Lately I started it again and it seems to be working which tells me that most of this is psychological. My other suggestion is Klonopin rather than the Xanax as they say that works better for sleep and is less addictive.
