I went off Provigil because I thought it was increasing my depression. Now, I'm less certain. There were some situational factors that may have been the actual culprits.
As for Ambien, it's supposed to be taken when you go to bed. NOT when you start thinking maybe it's getting to be time for bed. It sounds as though your husband is not taking it quite as directed.
By the way, I found an article about insomnia recently that said the first question to ask about insomnia is "are you in bed?" Seems a lot of people complain about insomnia, when the real problem is that they don't get into bed in the first place. If I get some time later, I can try to find it and send you the link.
Hope that helps. I'm pressed for time, but will check back later if you had any other questions.
