I would give Lunesta a try. I have been through a lot of sleep meds. Ambien stopped working and I had to triple the dosage and take it with alcohol to get any effect (my dr was pretty horrified when I told her). But I have been on Lunesta for a year and it has worked steadily and well. I highly recommend it.

The only thing is, you *really* need eight or nine hours, and try not to go to bed without going to the bathroom. It is a struggle to get up in the middle of the night! I am a smaller person though (105 lb) so it might affect you differently.

Also, your insomnia might lift if it's simply a side effect--with many meds, it's a start-up effect and lessens over time.
