I started sleeping normally after a few weeks, but I took ambien and I'm sure that helped. Once I got a couple of good nights of sleep via the ambien, then my sleep cycles started to normalize.

Not sleeping is really bad for your health. I understand why you're reluctant to take a sleep aid, but you might want to talk it over with your doctor. There's no need suffer, you know? And there are non-addictive options available.

The first day it did, but I think it was also that I was so tired and had a bad sleep deficit. After that it was fine. I only took it a few times.

Phenergan helps, and it is not dependence-producing.

It has virtually nothing to do with Suboxone, it is the addicted brain, even after healing for a period of time, that keeps you up at night. Studies link light or interrupted sleep with addiction recovery.It may take a while to get back to normal sleep cycles, just hang in there- at this point it will get better before you know it.
