From meds. It is true that insomniacs do actually have periods of sleep that they are certain never occurred.

First, Ambien (zolpidem) is not ever to be used with other sleep med. If it alone cannot ensure good sleep of 7-8h/night, it must be removed immediately and replaced by a proper med. Any person waking up after a few hours on Ambien (zolpidem) must stop it.

Getting good night's sleep is important for physical & mental health. Insomnia might be due to several reasons. Have a physical exam to rule out illness. If cleared consult with a Clinical Psychologist with expertise in multiple types of psychotherapy that helps you benefit from medication prescribed by a Psychiatrist. If uncomfortable with your Dr. seek 2nd opinion. You may need a sleep study.
