Liver-friendly sleep aid?

I'm looking for a relatively mild, non-habit-forming, liver-friendly sleep aid, either prescription or over-the-counter.  Is there anything out there that you all have had success with?  Thanks much in advance.

I see there are no responses after this has been posted a few days.  I guess I should conclude there may not be any liver-safe sleep aids out there?

It's tricky, that's probably why no one has responded. On one hand, sleeping pills are habit forming and may mask a deeper problem (ie insomnia can actually be a mild symptom of encephalopathy in cirrhosis patients), but, on the other hand, I'm sure there are some liver safe sleep aids. However, I don't know what they are since I was told to wait out the insomnia from my cirrhosis (and it did go away). Sorry that was totally no help, but just wanted to respond. Take care!
