Another one I forgot to mention is Calms Forte made by Hyland Formulations which you can get at a health food store. It works very well, is gentle, no hangover, and feels like it has a cumulative restoring effect. I forgot about it until now and am going to go out and get some today. It has homeopathics as well as herbs that lull you into a natural relaxed state instead of knocking your lights out.

Regarding the allergy stuff, I finally got a prescription for Flonase nasal spray from my doctor which works wonders. I've developed allergies to cats over the years (a disaster since they are our babies and no less than 4 of our 8 sleep with us). It had contributed to my sleep apnea over the years (waking up constantly from not breathing). I've resisted a cortisone-based spray sort of thing for years but it has worked wonders. I also sing and can now actually sustain an open throated sound instead of a croak.

> I would rather not take anything to sleep if possible. I have been taking the benedryl as Tylenol PM or plain benedryl for 7 years. Did try melatonin for awhile but it did not work very well for me. I know there is a mixture of herbs with valerian and skullcap that I have not taken yet. The valerian caps are nasty, smell like old sneakers.
