takeing a double dose ,,, I have been on ambian, and now im on lunesta with the same results ?
Just a suggestion, ask to try the tricyclic antidepressant Elavil, or it's generic form amitriptyline. It is cheap, very effective for sleep and most people don't experience side effects except for maybe a dry mouth. You can put something to drink next to your bed in case you wake up and need a few sips of something. It really worked for me.
I had the same problem. My physicain tried me on Restoril 15mg at bedtime and i now get an average of 7-8 hours of sleep and wake up feeling very rested. It has made a big differance for me. With your tolerance high tolerance to sleep medications, this medication may or may not work. However, it would not hurt to talk to your physician about this medication and find out his recommendation. Sandy
