You have insomnia, so besides prn ambien (zolpidem) and Klonopin, please consider avoiding caffeine, going to bed at the same time each night, and unplugging- TV included-an hour before you wish to sleep.
Warm showers/baths will also help at night, and give you a jump start in the morning. Thank you, and rest well.AMBIEN ANXIETY CLONAZEPAM DEPRESSION FEELING ANXIOUS INSOMNIA KLONOPIN MIRTAZAPINE REMERON SLEEP VALIUM YOUNG HEALTH OLD HEALTH
