Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

We cannot prescribe, but I can recommend a sleep aid as you suggest.

I see you have tried temazepam, Ativan, and zopiclone. I recommend Ambien, a very effective sleep aid. Another option is trazodone. An over the counter drug that is also very effective is melatonin. Good sleep hygiene and cognitive behavioral therapy for sleep are also effective. I offer this type of therapy online here if you are interested. See the link to my private service below.
