I am currently prescribed Ambien, but find that it really doesn't help too much. It helps me get to sleep, however it only keeps me asleep for about 3 or 4 hours. After that it's tossing and turning for the rest of the night as usual. I was curious if anybody has tried any ambien alternatives (i.e., Sonata), and I was wondering if you could tell me how they worked for you, and if you thought one drug was better than the other. Thanks.
