Hi Janice. I've seen timers at most hardware stores or places like Home Depot and such. They're commonly used to turn lights, TVs, or radios on and off in houses when people are away, so potential burglars will think someone's home. Just set the desired on/off times, plug it into the wall socket, then plug your applicance into the timer. I think they're like $10 or $15 or so. I HAVE to have coffee right out of bed, so I set the timer the night before. When I get up I walk straight to the coffee pot before anything else and pour a cup. I'm spoiled that way, but it's great!

Of all the ADs that might be considered for sleep in someone who is hesitant with drugs, I think Trazodone might be the best choice because it has a very short half life of just a few hours. So a low dose, like 25mg or 50mg, wouldn't impact the following day at all. And at that low of a dose, it probably wouldn't have any effect one way or the other as an AD. Just for a reference point, therapeutic doses are in the 200mg to 400mg range. And again, herbal teas for sleep might be all you need. Easy to try. Anyway, I hope any of these off the wall ideas might help.
