    Default insomnia's back

    I thought I was cured, but nope it came back with a vengeance. It was suggested I walk after dinner. The thing is I'll be falling asleep so I'll go to bed but once in bed I can't sleep. I do have trazadone for sleep and I use to take half a tablet to one tablet of the 150 mg and that worked took it for 3 months and it seemed to reset my sleep cycle than I didn't need it any more. Any one have tricks for sleeping through the night? because my problem is once I do fall asleep is I wake up every 3-4 hours through out the night.

    I liked the trazadone because I was able to sleep and didn't feel drowsy the next day.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I just thought this was normal :/ In which case the only cure I can think of is working up a swear with an exercise regime during the day. It's a body not tired mind is tired problem in my case.

    If you wake up in the middle of the night, a 6-oz cup w/1-2 of these tea bags steeped [good w/honey, btw], may help get you back to sleep, but it won't, you know, make you too groggy for the morning. Valerian root's been used for ages as a natural sleep aid supplement... worth a shot, non habit-forming, & it tastes good. You can find it at most supermarkets/Target/Walmart [actually the product website has a zipcode finder-thing, so you don't have to roam around a bunch of different stores.]

    Make sure ya grab the ''extra'' kind, & not just ''Sleepytime,'' as the plain one doesn't contain valerian.

    Best of luck, lady.

    i have to take Seroquel to get to sleep, thankfully it's one of my mood stabilizers anyway, so it's fine but without it i dont sleep either.

    Warm milk and honey does help. Also, i found writing helped to calm my brain down enough to try sleeping.

    I ran out of seroquel on wednesday and wasnt able to get in to get the script refilled till yesterday, i think i got 6 hours sleep in 3 days.

    I FEEL YOUR PAIN CHKNZ!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    I was once prescribed Seroquel too for sleep. Though it totally doped me out and the next day I was wobbling around like a stoned monkey.

    Prpl, I say speak to your doctor re this, and see if he/she can prescribe you some more of the medication you mentioned.
