Hi i had trouble while detoxing, used a mix of antihistamines over the counter( will only last a few times so try not to use in a row) ask chemist ,i nwas suprised as i use valium and other sedating drugs daily any how. I also just got a new drug in Australia it may be were you are already 2mg and its the sleeping hormone melatonin. It is slow release and i have a strict routine were i wake up stare at the sun as much as i can to activate the normal hormones ,pull blinds open in morn and at night shower aswell have warm milk and take tablet after a small snakc and keep the time exectly the same each night but also use relaxation tape if they shit u use a 5 minite one as this creates the routine.
and u need a back up plan if you dont fall to sleep have a talking cd to listen to book on tape ect and you will fall to sleep if not enjoy the story ass if you accept it your actually more klikely to sleep.also i found i dsid wake up a couple times but felt tired and just relaxed and fell to nsleep each time (didnt get up) hope the melatonin works (need a scriptfor 21 tabs) bgood luck as its the best when it works
Well as far as sleep goes benadryl, DXM, or (havnt used them personally) Unisom tabs are what i would suggest. But theres more to this than just taking medicine to help it. I know this sounds drastic but you just described a manic episode of bipolar disorder. So maybe you should talk to you doc about that too
Can't sleep, very, edgy, little things set you off. The KEY comment was "Lots on my mind." I have a feeling that is why you can't sleep. I wish I could look at the other comments while I type, as Richard has a very good idea. Soothing relaxing music may help when you go to bed. Maybe before you try meds, try some self help techniques. This may sound silly but it has worked for me. While lying in bed, starting with your neck muscles, tighten them as much as possible, hold, then very, very slowly release the tension. Then do that same technique with your shoulders, then arms, hands, mid section, thighs, calves, feet, toes. Then reverse the order. Toes, all the way back to your neck muscles. Do this technique while listening to your fav music to keep your mind clear of the issues that are bothering you. Whether it's Michael Bolton (yuck) Lamb of God, Fear Factory, Eve 6, or Santana.
Put on the headphones, take long deep breaths, do the relaxation techniques and try to get the sleep your body is craving. If this doesn't work, then please talk with your doc and see if a good sleep med may be in order. Good luck to you and hope you get your troubles straightened out.
My best wishes!
