Have you ever tried melatonin for sleep? It works pretty good for me and is fairly cheap, especially if you have access to Costco. Also, I was told by a doctor that good old benedryl is one of the safest and most effective sleepers around and he prescribes it before anything else. You can get it or it's generic over the counter for about $2 and if it's going to work it'll knock you out. Unfortunately it also can feel like a truck ran over you when trying to wake up. Then there are some people who get a buzz off it.
Sometimes my insomnia just doesn't want to budge and I can take a maxi dose of ambien, klonopin, herbs, teas, and still lie there boinging off the walls. Just that chemistry thing.
> One good thing is that I ran out of Tylenol PM, dont have any sleeping pills of any kind and no money till Friday, sooo last night I made a really strong pot of chamomile/mint tea and I slept pretty good. I will try it again tonight as I dont have any other options. Mind over matter...
