Just have to jump in here as a fellow insomniac. Battling it for over 10 years. Did the sleep clinic assessment and was diagnosed as depressed. Sure, depressed from not sleeping but otherwise fine. Initially put on SSRIs with the predictable consequence...greater insomnia. Went through a bunch of other stuff until, about four years ago, settled on Kolonopin which I self-administer from 1-2mg/nite. Generally works quite well, so it seems its plain vanilla anxiety that got/gets me up at 3:00am.
Ambien, btw, is very tolerance sensitive; probably won't work for more than 2 weeks.
Currently going through a complicated accupunture treatment from highly trained MD. Not working yet but it's been an interesting experience.
