  • Everything?
    There are literally dozens of drugs that can be used to treat insomnia. If you tried one and it didn't work, try something different. If you tried Ambein, try a benzo rather than a hypnotic (valium or klonopin).
    Try valerian root and melatonin combined.

  • have you tried going to a specialist? if one kind of medicine didnt work then they need to keep tryign until they find somethign right for you. my mil had the same thing after she got cancer she jus couldnt sleep anymore so now he had been going at diferent doctors for abotu 3 years withough any diference he would go to speciallist to naturalist and just regular doctors. now he foudn one that gave her meds and send her for massages because she was very tense and so now she is sleeping
