What a horrible predicament to be in. First, have you tried Remeron? Second, do you feel your insomnia is biological, or complicated by anxiety or stress about life issues--or, of course, about not being able to fall asleep?
I've had insomnia my whole life, and luckily Xanax is working for me now, but I do remember one particularly bad bout in my mid 20s, when the only thing that worked was not sleeping in my bed. It had become so associated with freaking out about not sleeping that I just had to sit on the couch in the living room, which helped me not think about it, and then I'd magically drop off.
