Hi, I'm new to this group and a few others. I have a lot of trouble sleeping. I sit up until 6 a.m. and I'm wide awake. I've tried taking Lunesta, but it didn't do a thing for me. I would much rather not use medication to sleep, because I am already on one for anti-depression, and one for a heart problem, so I just feel like I dont really need to add another. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to relax or try to fall asleep earlier? Anything would help.
There's an article about progressive muscle relaxation under the articles tab. There's also self hypnosis. Camomile tea helps, but check to make sure it's ok with your meds. Sleepy time tea helps some.
