Started a week ago exactly, insomnia every night since then. I am lucky if I catch 3 hours of sleep, and that usually comes after the sun comes up. I think I may be experiencing panic attacks on the side, or else I am psyching myself out because of lack of sleep. I went to Dr. and he prescribed Xanax. It didn't work that well, so now I am upping the dosage to two pills at once instead of just one (first time I've done this tonight). I've also tried natural remedies, such as melatonin, kava kava and valerian root. None have really relaxed me enought to sleep. Lack of sleep is causing me to go nuts, I'm irritable to my kids and no patience at all. Gee, I wonder why? Haha. So I read a few of you mention Benadryl. Pills or liquid, and how much? Also, does it calm one down enought to sleep? Like I said, my body is ready for sleep...but I can't calm myself down enough to sleep. Very frustrating. Any info would be much appreciated!
