I resumed using sleeping aids three years ago, and the Ambien I am taking does not have the same beneficial effect as it did originally. My sleep problems are affecting
the quality of my life and I am wondering if Placidyl would again be an option.

Your stuck with Ambien, Lunesta, Sonata and the benzodiazepines Halcion, Dalmane, Restoril, etc. Generic benzodiazepines may be BIOEQUIVALENT (passing the FDA's tests) to the brand, but they almost always are not THERAPEUTICALLY equivalent. Sandoz, a old and respected drug company, now makes ONLY generics. Your doc can ensure that you get the Sandoz generic (at least in my state) by writing "Ambien 10mg - Sandoz - tabs #60". Otherwise, most state laws rquire him to dispense the least expensive generic and they may or may not use a Sandoz product for this purpose. My personal prescribing experience with Ambien for "serious insomnia" is 20 or 30mg WITH trazadone (Desyrel, a lousy antidepressant, but it was noted that patients were rather drowsy) roughly from 100-300mg. Try Ambien 20mg with Trazodone 150mg first. That's what I'd prescribe.
