    These are some things that help me sleep:

    1. Not having any electronics in my bedroom.
    2. Having a comfortable bed with clean linens.
    3. Having a clean, organised room.
    4. Having exercised that day.
    5. Having only consumed a moderate amount of caffeine.

    Generally I try to not take prescription drugs; maybe they are worth a try, hmmmm....
    Well, I had a lot of problems either feeling like I was spinning while trying to go to sleep or waking up with veritgo or having sleep interrupted with sleep paralysis and it helped me, but hey I am certainly not trying to advise anyone else about what to do, just saying what helped me. May the doxylamine succinate doesn't produce "good sleep", but it certainly produces a better sleep than what I was getting and the side effects are minimal which I can't say for the No-Goes the doctor put me on two years ago! :eek:

    In that case, yes I can see how they would help.

    Thanks. I try to do most of those, caffeine kicks my ass though. I like to drink coffee whilst writing, and then I mostly write at night = bad combination.

    I used to have trouble going to sleep when I was younger. Now I pretty much fall asleep a minute (or less) after my head hits the pillow. I guess I just get worn out by normal life now. I also exercise fairly regularly and don't drink much caffeine, neither of which was true when I was younger.

    Yes, caffeine is probably the issue here.

    I only allow myself 2 cups of tea per day. Feeling tranquil sure beats feeling like you're coked up.

    That's more like objective vertigo.

    I get subjective vertigo where I feel like I am the one spinning.
