It has been about 15yrs since my TT, and I still do not sleep, but I got used to
it. I can only take the ambien
every 6th or 7th day, because I have a high
tolerance for it. I have also been prescribed Lunesta, my doctor prescribed it to me, so i guess it is okay to take sleep aides. I have for the past 10 yrs off and on.
Just make sure your doctor says it is okay.
