Why don't you ask your doc for 'zopiclone' (brand name 'Imovane' (by 'Rhone Poulenc')). It works at the usual dose of 7.5mg (compared with 10mg for Ambien), is sold in 30 tabs packs (just as Stilnox(=Ambien) is here in Europe) and has a formula very different from Ambien's, though it seems to be another 'benzodiazepine-like' hypnotic drug.
Please notice, however, that although I see it advertised along with Ambien, as a product 'offered' by one of 'those' off-shore pharmacies, I don't even know if it is currently available in the US.
Hope this little helps.
