... than just regular sleeping pills? My GP prescribed me years ago with zopiclone to help me sleep which it didn't do then when i was diagnosed with insomnia she never offered me any different tablet to help me sleep. Is there other medication available to help someone like myself with insomnia sleep. I am currently on my 5th night without sleep
If you go too many nights without sleep, you might want to consider checking yourself into a hospital. They can help find what works for you. I know people who have gone in for that. You could try an urgent care clinic too, they might be able to help you short term.
Melatonin is a natural hormone produced in your brain. Supplemental melatonin-the pill kind-adds more melatonin into your system. Some studies show it works while some show it's no more helpful than a sugar pill. It's safe for short term use of insomnia (9 months) unless told otherwise by a doctor.
