Why do sleeping pills stop working?

Creola55 posted:
I have sleep apnea and use a C-Pap machine. I also suffer from Chronic pain, depression, and anxiety along with several other medical conditions.
My provider has prescribed Lunesta, Ambien, Trazadone, Restoril, and Clonopin, and most lately Seroquel. I have also tried several different OTC sleep aids.
All of the pills have stopped working between 2 - 5 days after beginning use.
Has anyone else experienced this problem and what was done about it?
Thanks.
