I have tried trazodone, ambien, amitriptyline, and others. I have insomnia. My doctor recently put me on Trileptal. It is the only thing that seems to work, but makes me sleep for two days. I'd love to find something to make me sleep for one night. Anyone having the same problem as me or have any recommendations?
Hi, just a few more i could recommend are: Clomipramine, Doxepin, Imipramine, Nortriptyline, Protriptyline... these are all in the drug class Tricyclic antidepressants - as is the Amitriptyline you tried. Not all medications in the same class work exactly the same, so just because you have tried one unsuccessfully, another one might work out for you. Good luck
Hi ive been on a few different ones myself .i find antitripline best as there s no grogginness the next day .im on 25 mg s .to benified from a good sleeping pill .i stay away from them for 2 or 3 nights .so they work for me when i do take em . As the body gets used to them and they wont work if used every nite . Hope this helps you

I am trying to taper off 13 years of Ambien. Do I need amitriptyline to build up to help with sleep?
