    Natural sleep remedies

    I've been having trouble falling asleep so I spoke with my doctor and he wanted to put me on Ambien but I don't want to rely on a sleep medication. Does anyone have any natural sleep remedies that may help?
    Thanks

    melatonin. 10mg. or alterill which can be found at the pharmacy or walmart. alterill has some herbs in it that help. melatonin works well for most people though. i am a chronic survivor of insomnia and on many medications for it which is seroquel, klonipin, and amitriptilene. melatonin works for most people, it just didn't for me.

    Ah, melatonin. You aren't the first person to mention this, I am going to give this a shot. Thank you, SimplyRae.

    So, last night was my first night going the melatonin route and without getting too excited, it seemed to help. I will keep at it, and report back.

    Thanks again SimplyRae!

    There are special glasses that filter/block blue light.
    Blue light (part of "normal" light) prevents your body from making melatonin at night, and hence a lot of people have problems falling asleep.
    You put these glasses on, 1-3 hours before going to sleep.
    It definitely helped me.

    Another thing that helped me for a while, was Valerian 750 mg.
    But after a while I got "immune" to it.
