Thanks in advance ;)
Does the memory problem date to the start of the med? Your fear of not sleeping is probably a big part of you not sleeping. I had to go thru changing my internal dialogue. It had to go to, so what if I don't sleep one night? It won't kill me. I can manage if that happens. Sleeping takes some changes, like no tv or computer for 2 hrs before bed, because the light from them supresses melatonin. Go to bed the same time every night, try a glass of milk before bed, it doesn't have to be warm. Change that dialogue, be positive you'll sleep. The room should be quiet and completely dark. Try taking melatonin at bedtime.
My bedtime is so regular now that when its time, my dogs go to the bedroom door to tell me. lolol.
