This summer I had a few sleepless nights due to anxiety about home construction. Then it turned into anxiety about not being able to fall asleep. I had never had a sleep issue before but now every night is a struggle to fall asleep. My heart starts beating fast and I am completely awake come bedtime. With 2 little boys this does not work well come morning! I have tried Xanax, Ambien & Trazodone. Not a big fan of the first 2 (prefer something non habit forming & Ambien just didn't work for me) and Trazodone seems to work at 100 mg. Was wondering if anyone had suffered from something similar & what worked for you? Thanks!
A million of us. You get so afraid you won't sleep. Then you look at the clock. Then you get more anxious. You're not alone.
Sounds to me you would benefit more from some of the research on insomnia. You may find the solution has nothing to do with medications, and everything to do with habits, thought habits, nutrition and mid-day exercise, even walking.
A lot online, all of it without cost or risk of dependence or liver problems.
Benadryl! It's great for night time anxiety and allergies too! That and yogi bedtime tea.
