Melatonin is a good first step for help sleeping. I prefer the ones that dissolve since they work quicker. I have also used the PM pills like you see in Tylenol PM and others. You can buy Unison and just get the PM part which is diphenhydramine (also the active ingredient in Benadryl). I have used both of these with camomile tea. I now take amitriptyline because after years of taking the others I needed something else. I hope this helps.
I soak at least 20 minutes in a tub filled with hot (common sense here) water, 2-3 cups of Epsom salts, 1-2 cups baking soda. These draw out toxins and the salts magnesium enter your body which is a natural nerve sedative. I add Biggs and Featherbill scented bath salts for relaxation. And, whatever music helps you to chill is great. For some reason, the so-called relaxation music only makes me more antsy; I go for some bayou, (like Roachford and Credence Clearwater Revival.) It's about what makes YOU feel better.
Hi, I developed sleep problems and was prescribed various sleeping medications. None of them worked, and I was worried about using any of them, other than occasionally. To make a long story short, I eventually saw a sleep specialist. The doctor had me undergo three sleep studies. It was determined that I had Narcolepsy. Treatment for that put an end to my sleep problems. Final note: my doctor put me on a non-amphetimine day time wakefulness medication called Provigil. Some doctors prescribe amphetamines, so I would be sure to ask the doctor whether something like Provigil is ok to try first.
