my doc prescribed restoril for me (temazapam) when Ambien stopped working for me, and the restoril did NOTHING...but I was taking 15 mg. I would call the doc right away and let her know the med is not working.
As far as the Ambien not working, now, I can take them for about
three weeks, and then have to go off of them for a week, to reset my system, so to speak. During that week, I take the restoril and a flexeril and still don't sleep well, but at least I know it's just a week.
I do think quieting our minds is key. I can be exhausted, falling asleep sitting up and go to bed and I'm wide awake and my mind is just racing. Lately, I have started to listen to my Ipod. I download "quiet" music, mainly Josh Groban, or podcasts from Wayne Dyer and I barely hear the first minute and I'm out. It also pretty much drowns out my DH's snoring!
