I’m 25 years old now and I have insomnia since I was 19-20, and that’s when I started taking zolpidem. I loved it, it put me to sleep immediately. But now, I’d say these last year, I literally don’t feel anything after taking it (I don’t stay on my phone anymore, just try to sleep), like I could go for a walk after that, fully awake and aware. I do take them on an empty stomach, and follow most of the advice that’s there to sleep better. I guess I keep taking them for the hope that they will work again someday.
So my question is: since I’m on a high dose already and probably my doctor won’t suggest going higher, is it possible that other meds work for my insomnia? Or do you think it would have to be a mix of meds?
I have a trip in a couple months and I don’t want to not be able to sleep :(
