As odd as it sounds, when I can't sleep I "trick" myself my telling myself that I went to be earlier and for some reason I don't feel as nasty the next day. Say I go to bed at 10p and don't fall asleep until 1a. I will just keep telling myself I fell asleep at 11p.
Not sleeping is hard on a person. Another thing I do is try to accept it, I tell myself the next day is going to be hard and I go over what I will need to do to get through it and that helps me fall asleep instead of laying awake stressing about
how I cannot sleep.
As for meds, nothing puts me to sleep anymore. I can take my pain meds and my anxiety meds at the same time and be wide awake. I have yet to find a sleeping med that works either.
Have you tried a valarian/meletonin suppliment? My husband takes one when it is his bed time and he swears by it. (make sure tocheck with your doc that it is safe to take though, valarian interacts with many things)
Take care and I hope you sleep well tonight.

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz
