I take trazadone. I usually try to come up with a story. And let my mind wonder freely.

Does trazadone work for you? I tried it a couple times and it didn't work for me. I still have a bottle of it. I forget the mg. maybe 50? I think i took a half pill. Maybe a whole pill would work better? My doc wont write narcotics, but will write a script for trazadone. How many do you have to take to sleep?

Exercise best to make you tired

For medication, I useing Quetiapine. It is anti-psychotics but you only need very small dose for sleep. 25mg make you drowsy and sleep 6-7 hour. But make you zombie first 3 or 4 days when take

Other person take antihistamines

Best one for sleep is name hydroxozone or hydroxyzine sorry can not remember spell. It is very safe. Quetiapine have side effect some person.

I take 100mg at night and it helps, but it's not perfect. It's pretty subtle for me.

I just can't do quietapine. It makes me feel depersonalized it's freaky. I've been trying melatonin not much help. Only thing that is working for me is the hard way wake up early and force yourself to stay up. It's hard really hard. Hopefully I can get some magnesium and a few suppliments soon to help

Hi John,

I would try listening to music if you can virtually all day, if can't, certainly late at night, and you might find that listening to soothing easy listening music, does wonders, for then sleeping, just be careful regarding batteries! They don't get drained out.

I would also recommend, now, ah, I'm sure about where you are, there in Britain, I can buy Phenagon, Phenagon is mavellous tool for getting to sleep, might be worth a venture to look into.

Regards.

Natalie,

London, UK.

I know you may not think it’s strong enough but try Tylenol pm or aleve pm. It puts me asleep.
