I also used to have severe sleep problems for many years but I am not sure whether it was the same problems as yours. It was very difficult to fall asleep but once asleep I could just sleep forever. And still I felt very tired during the day. Getting up in time was a major battle.

Medications that really made me sleep were Remeron and Mianserin. After taking a medium dose of one of these I would fall asleep within one hour, no matter what happened around me. They also have a very calming effect which could help your anxiety.

Taken at very high doses (above recommended doses) I experienced a strong antidepressive and activating effect but never any anxiety.

Good thing about these is that there is little risk of OD and they can be combined with most other meds.

Bad thing is weight gain. They may also impair driving until you get used to them and alcohol may hit a little harder.

Whether you choose Remeron or Mianserin is mainly a matter of price and availability. They are very similar.

I hope this can help you.
