I have had ongoing ocassional problems with insomnia over the past 10 years. Whenever it hits it absorbs my thoughts constantly! I have tried Sonata in the past but it makes me feel yucky the next day, I have used Klonopin and it seems to work I have also tried xanax one time and was able to fall asleep. I hate taking anything, but I hate laying awake obsessing over the fact that I cannot sleep. I don't want to become dependent on anything. So I was wondering what is recommended xanax, ativan or klonopin. Thanks!
Hi northwoodsmom, I take melatonin to help me sleep. You can find it in pill form at any pharmacy or health food store. 'Tis a natural product. It does not work all of the time, however.
Xanax is good for anxiety and should help you sleep. Valium is also a good med for anxiety.
Have you ever tried relaxation excersizes? That can help, along with breathing techniques.
