Because you are taking large doses of prescription medication that can be dangerous, you need to be evaluated by your doctor right away.

Although I never took the strong medications that you do, I tried a variety, one at a time, and none were really effective. It turned out there was a physical cause for my insomnia. Once the problem was identified and treated I slept just fine. Have you investigated a physical cause? In any case you should be careful about getting addicted to the junk you are taking. I was very careful about that so never had the problem.
