Hello, I am so sorry that your insomnia is this bad, I can understand how distressing this can be for you. So there are a couple options that you have to help lessen this insomnia
1. Switching from Ambien to Lunesta may be effective as Lunesta lasts longer throughout the night and has been shown to be more effective in keeping people asleep than Ambien. Ambien works faster than Lunesta though, but washes out of your system within 2-3 hours while Lunesta's half-life is usually twice as long. So either switching to Lunesta or possibly adding it to your sleep aid regimen may be helpful for you.
2. For many people, insomnia can be caused by stress
/anxiety, so instead of relying on a specific sleep aid medication, switching or adding a benzodiazepine to your night time regimen may be effective for you. Benzoadiazepine lessen anxiety significantly and have a strong sedative
effect to help you relax and fall (and stay asleep) as well. Some effective benzodiazepine that are fast acting would be Klonopin, Xanax, or Ativam.
3. Lastly while the Seroquel may not have been effective for you, there is another off-label sleep aid medication known as Trazodone, which is an older TCA antidepressant, that may be effective in lessening this insomnia. This medication has a strong sedative effect and is routinely used as am off-label sleep aid medication.
I hope this answers your questions and gives you some guidance on this issue. I truly hope that these options help to lessen your overall insomnia very soon. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns as I am happy to assist and support you regarding this issue.
