      Ask for 15mg Mirtazapine, it is an antidepressant but is a fairly strong sedative too. If that doesn't work then go back & ask for 10mg Zolpidem or ask for it first. It is a fast acting sleeping tablet & strong. Tell them how insomnia is effecting your life, really pile it on & push it you'll more likely get the Zolpidem prescription. Zolpidem is addictive which is why docs are reluctant to prescribe but tell them you need sleep for your physical & mental health.......a pill is better than no sleep. Really push it with them good luck.

      There is something stronger than Zopiclone it is called Nitrazepam but I don't think your doctor will prescribe. Nitrazepam would keep you asleep longer than Zopiclone.
