    Anyone else? I don't have a problem falling asleep, i just wake up alot. Thoughts runnimg through my mind, get up to pee, etc etc. If i take a anxiety meds before i go to sleep, that helps, but would rather go a natural route. I truly feel like shit everyday from tiredness and have no energy..

    Ambien. Ask your doctor for a trial-pack.

    Just exercise a fuckton at the end of the day. Hard to not sleep when your body is completely drained physically.

    How often do you get high on wine before bed? Alcohol is liquid anxiety, chemically, as it metabolizes.

    Melatonin 1-5 mg. natural sleep hormone. Zero hangover effect. Swear by it. Any pharmacy or market.

    Me too. I've tried everything but only manage about 4-ish shitty hours per night.
    The only thing that ever worked was a Psychiatric drug called Saphris... it knocks you the fuck out and the all the next day you're very very tired. I only use it for a night or two when I'm really suffering w/ long periods of little sleep.
    If you can get it it's worth trying once in a while.

    Do you have sleep apnea?

    I just bought a Fitbit Charge HR, which detects sleep. I've only had it a few days, but it seems to work OK. From what I've read the Microsoft one works better for tracking REM sleep.

    One reason people smoke/vape/eat weed is because they don't dream anymore. Some people have such fucked up dreams it's better to just not dream. Plus it helps some go to sleep, but you said that wasn't your problem.
