Hi all. I've been on Ambien for about 5 years. I know I should only take them for 2 weeks at a time, however I have chronic insomnia and cannot sleep without it. I've tried most of the other sleeping pills, (lunesta, restoril, trazodone, remeron, serequol, most of the benzos, and the OTC diphenhydramine and doxylamine succinate) however, the only thing I've ever had success with is the Ambien. But, my tolerance has become absurd. When I first started taking it 5-10mgs would knock me out, but due to taking them for so long, I've built a tolerance. I'm currently prescribed 20mgs a night, which doesn't even touch my insomnia.. I usually have to take 40mgs or more to get any sleep. I know this is unhealthy and I want to switch to something that will still work, but that I can take a normal dose. However, due to the ineffectiveness of most sleeping pills, I've been a little discouraged. I was reading about Ambien and how it's apart of the "Z-drugs," which also listed Sonata as being a similar drug that works in a similar way. My question is: If I already have such an insane tolerance to Ambien, will I have a tolerance to Sonata, also?
