Hello and thank you for your question. Ambien is only supposed to be used temporarily as it is a physically addicting medication which is why it is meant to be used only for a few weeks at most. If the Ambien is no longer effective for you than it would be wise to taper off that medication slowly and consider using the Neurontin (Gabapentin). Neurontin can be used in an off-label fashion as sleep aid, and is not physically addicting like the Ambien, so this can be used in the long-term at the appropriate dose to help you sleep at night.
I hope this answers your question and gives you some guidance on this issue. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns as I am happy to assist and support you regarding this issue.
