I was on ambien for several years before the VA stopped prescribing it to me. Since then, they have been playing wack-a-mole with various anti-anxiety, anti-psychotics for sleep instead. I recently tried a lunesta from a friend and it was amazing. I slept so well. I tried Klonopin and it worked a little too well.
Do you have a script from the va for a real insomnia med that works?
If not, how do you get it? I would hate to go out of pocket for a civilian doc only to get turned down for a script.
