Sorry to hear about your pain...not getting any sleep because of pain only makes it worse!
I have migraines and sleep deprivation is a big part of my problem. I was given Sonata one time to take and it would give me 3 hours of sleep and that is it...the only way I would get more is if I took more when I woke up, doubling up on the dosage before going to sleep would not help one bit. If it has not given you any sleep then I would stop trying, it's not going to. Are you on any medication for the pain that may be blocking it? Well, the ONLY medication that has continually helped me is ambien. I go through needing 10mg to 20mg sometimes, but it will give you sleep and you will not feel any side effects when you wake up. My only warning is that it does cause amnesia. I will take it and have conversations with my husband that I don't remember or do something silly...but I get such good results with it that I keep taking it. What is funny is that ALL my doctors say that it's not addicting. funny, i sure do feel addicted!
Anyway, maybe it could help you sleep through the pain...hopefully by now you have found something to help you. Good luck!
