Hello.

It will help if you could just mention if the insomnia is since a very long period. There are a lot of other treatments, apart from the medicines.

Ambien is good for sleep. But it gives you only about 5-6 hours of good sleep, in patients of mild to moderate insomnia.

I would rather have you find out the cause for your insomnia. As you work in the night, you might be suffering from "Shift work sleep disorder". The normal cycle of sleep and wakefulness is disturbed.

You could modify your lifestyle to suit your night time work. Observe Sleep Hygiene. Please avoid drinking too much coffee in the night in order to concentrate on work.

Also, get a regular exercise schedule running. Moderate exercise flushes out the toxins in the body, and helps regulate a lot of body systems, including the sleep system.

All the best.
Please feel free to ask any further queries on this.

Regards
