I would try Remeron again at very low doseages & creep up slowly. Another TCA worth trying is Surmontil(Trimipramine) it has very little to no effect as an NRI & no effect as an SRI, but is the most potent of 5-HT2A antagonists as far as TCA's go. 5-HT2A antagonist improve sleep overall, while benzos cause it to deteriorate.
