I also have insomnia and have for years. I'm a night owl, since I've been a kid, but work during the day so I have to sleep at night. I've tried a bunch of drugs - ambien, lunesta, trazadone, klonopin, xanax among others, did the hot baths, meditation, and herbal remedies, and none of them work for me. I have a very high tolerance to sleeping or pain meds and always have - it's not from over-use, it's just always been that way. Currently I am taking Seroquel 50mg (which is for depression - I have bipolar 2), which really makes me sleep. The unfortunate thing, for me, on Seroquel is that 8 hours isn't enough sleep - I'm groggy and tired the next day real bad. I tried cutting it to 12.5 mg but it didn't make me fall asleep. But you might want to try it. Try using it on a night when you don't have to work the next day to see if you sleep for 12 hours, or can manage 8 and feel okay the next day. Good luck, and if you find something else that works, I'd love to hear about it.
