Since I feel like we have some symptoms in common, namely anxiety, insomnia, and late-night racing thoughts (correct if I'm wrong about this), you might want to look into Seroquel at a pretty low dose, like 25mg to start, as a possible plan B or C. It's predictable with inducing sleep onset and it acts all day to calm anxiety.
The thing with benzos especially is that you don't know you need one until you are already pretty uncomfortable. I found myself carrying a few .5mg lorazepam pills on me "just in case". That's no way to live. With one dose of Seroquel at night, as long as I don't overdo the caffeine I am mellow. It also has a definite antidepressant effect, which is probably enhanced by my taking antidepressants.
Don't be frightened by the "antipsychotic" label or anything else you might here. Just keep it as an option, that's all.
