Suggesting a medication with the information you give here is dangerous. You make no mention of other meds as well as other medical conditions.
I would suggest a visit to your sleep doctor. Before you discuss medicines, sleep hygiene should be discussed. Generally, most patients I see that are having issues also have some bad sleep hygiene. This includes, but not limited to TV use all night, clock watching, caffiene and alcohol use too close to bedtime.
Have you had a weight gain of weight loss? Change of other medicines? You may also need to have your CPAP pressure evaluated.
If your sleep hygiene is ok, and pressure is ok, you should address the medication issue with the sleep doc so that something safe for your situation can be considered.

I can't understand this at all,my dr. gives me ambien 10mg. and has been doing so for a year now.
I have told him I am really concerned that I have to take it to sleep but he said,'well,ambien is the safest thing you could take and right now we need to be concerned with getting you to sleep on a regular basis.
I don't understand why some dr.s feel sleep meds are ok and some do not.
I know that probably by now I am addicted.
