I have had insomnia for 4 years (cannot fall asleep) and have relied on Ambien past 3 plus years. I had mild amnesia symptoms in the morning so am needing to change. I tried trazodone, it is not effective (2 plus hours to fall asleep) and dry mouth follows in morning. Now I am trying hypnotherapy and need other prescription in meantime. Rozerem and Lunesta are next in line to try.
