I am so sorry that you can't sleep. Have you tried the time release ambien? I never have, but I do take ambien to sleep and it works well for me. I am sorry that it doesn't work for you.
Have you tried meditation? That also works well for me, as my mind wanders sometimes and that keeps me awake. I ran out of ambien this past month due to a change in the doctor's schedule. So I took an extra xanax at night and did meditation. That did help me fall asleep. Though I get a more restful sleep from the ambien.
I hope that you can find something that will help you. There is a medication called risperdol, that is often given to people who can't sleep at night, it shuts down that part of the brain that keeps thinking about
things. You might want to talk to your doctor about
Best wishes to you.
