Greetings.

Welcome to the site.

Well, if your primary concern is difficulty in falling sleep then you shall ask your primary doctor to prescribe you on a sleep aid drug like ambien cr ( zolpidem extended release) at dose of 6.25 mg or 12.5 mg in case the lower dose is ineffective. In addition to this you may also seek from him remeron ( mirtazapine ) at dos of 15 mg at bedtime . While mirtazapine is an anti depressant medication which also works wonderfully in insomnia other than helping mood symptoms like irritability, low mood , lack of energy, lack of enthusiasm, lack of inferest and pleasure,which i feel you also have owing to multiple conditions that you have been reeling under. So this combination of two medications will ensure a refreshing and adequate sleep at night plus an overall improvement in your health , both physical and psychological health, thereby infusing fresh strength in you so as to endure your conditions.

I hope this helps.

Wish you all the best.

Please kindly leave a POSITIVE RATING if you are satisfied with the answer.

Regards

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
