Re: Sleep difficulties
This sounds like my life. I have trouble sleeping, I stay up all night, I get a few hours of sleep, if any, then go to school.
I've taken lots of prescription drugs, but the side effects are horrible, and almost negate the benefits. I have tried natural things like melatonin, and it helps get me relaxed, which helps me fall asleep quicker, but not sooner per se. When I get in bed it takes me at least an hour (sometimes 2) to fall asleep, with melatonin, it can cut that "thinking time" in half.
I'll suggest something for you to keep in mind. I have taken marijuana, and it's a miracle drug for sleeping. It knocks me out almost every time. I really don't like doing it all the time, so it's not a solution to my problem, but I do it occasionally when I really need sleep. Just keep it in mind, it's natural and works far better than Ambien or melatonin.
I've also heard Valerian Root with melatonin is a good concoction.
