I have found a good mix of zopiclone (Immovane) 5mg and .5 mg of clonazepam is enough to give me a good 8 hrs of sleep.
I might have to talk to the doctor about increasing the dosages though as we have just increased the wellbutrin.

Current meds: Lexapro 10mg, Wellbutrin SR 150mg 2x day
As needed: Restoril or Trazadone for sleep. Klonopin infrequently, Nuvigil for shift work.
Previous meds I tried: Paxil, Prozac, Cymbalta, Pristiq, Abilify, Buspar, Xanax, Depakote, Doxepin.

My psychiatrist put me on 150mg of Seroquel XR and it works well for me.
FYI: For some reason it takes a long time to start working. I try to take it by 6:00pm, no later than 7:00pm. I usually go to bed around midnight. If I take it any later then 7:00pm I’m very groggy in the morning.
I haven't had luck with Trazodone, Melatonin, Ambien or Lunesta. Clonazepam works but 1) I have to take a lot of it and 2) I’m not really supposed to use it anymore.
You might ask your doctor or psychiatrist opinion on Seroquel XR if you are still having trouble.

When I went back on it this time, I just experimented with when I took the Wellbutrin to minimize the effects. For me, for some reason, I either have to take it before about 9am, or in the early afternoon for it to not keep me up at night. (I'm on the XR, so I guess it has something to do with the release of the drug in the body, and catching it at the right times)

I would ride out the insomnia and see if it subsides on its own. Now I'm hooked on sleeping aids- if I go two night without I get extremely nauseated.

Quetiapine (Seroquel) 50mg, works very well for me.
I tried it for a couple of nights. Made me go to sleep but I was sleepy the next day.
Now I am having one dose of midazolam and half of zolpidem. Works most of the nights.

The first week of Wellbutrin I needed to take Benadryl 50-75mg to sleep. The side effect though was TERRIBLE dry mouth, since both Wellbutrin and Benadryl will dry you out.
I'm afraid to try a sleeping pill because of the side effects. I hate feeling groggy in the morning... especially because I work early and in a highly stressful situation.

I am taking 1 mg of Xanax at night (for leg cramps and teeth clenching) and wellbutrin during the day. I find that 1 mg relaxes me enough to sleep all night... sometimes I still wake up with leg cramps but I also take hylands leg cramps PM an hour after I take the Xanax.
