Did you try the trazodone and lunesta together? I took a combo similar to that for a while. Trazodone is not as strong as lunesta. Maybe ask your doctor or pharmacist if you can take a Lunesta and about 50 mg Trazodone. 150 mg is too much to start on in my opinion. When I took it I started on 25 mg, then 50. I never even tried 100 mg. If your doctor gives the OK, try 50 mg trazodone and then just read a book or something very quiet, and relax for half an hour, then when you're really relaxed, take the lunesta to seal the deal. I think lunesta works faster than trazodone. Eventually, take a little more trazodone, and a little less lunesta. Trazodone is better for you than lunesta in the long run. All medications are awful though. They are hard to stop. I have tried accupuncture, but I waited until I was too far gone with the anxiey. It might have helped if I had caught it sooner. I tried hypnosis once. The lady took me back to when I was young to find out "the hidden reason" why I have insomnia. It cost way too much and didn't work. I have heard that if you go for a massage once a week or more for a month, you relearn how to relax and you take that feeling away with you.
