    I need help. I have so much trouble sleeping. I wish us humans didn't require it.
    I start at around 11:30pm by taking 10mg of Ambien and .5 of Xanax. Long story short I'm lucky if I get to sleepin by 3 most nights.
    Yes I work. I groggily get up around 6:30ish.
    Any suggestions are welcome.

    Got nothin'.

    Whole lifetime trying to figure out how to sleep.

    Docs can't fix it. Drugs only work sometime.

    Shit sucks.

    I use seroquel for sleep. Small doses may help. Ive also trained myself to fall asleep with , well this will sound weird, but I need star trek, tos to fall asleep. After all these years, ive hypnotized myself to fall asleep to those shows. I still need the seroquel as well. Ive been on night shift for so many years my sleep mechanism is destroyed. Even with the seroquel, I only sleep for an hour at a time.

    Its prescription only. Its actually an anti psychotic med thats used for sleep. I cant use ambien. Ive been on seroquel for about 15 years. Its the only drug I dont abuse.

    Had terrible insomnia for years.

    White noise helps to a degree.

    Best thing I ever did was get a product called REM sleep. Gets you straight into a deep sleep.

    Also, visualisation works well also...a sexy soothing female voice leading you through this works well.

    A years intense psychotherapy helped me also.

    It is all about finding wgat works for you.

    Only thing that works for me is booze. My job does random piss tests so that solution is out until the weekends

    I like to play rain sound videos when I sleep. There are dozens in them on tube for free. They really help me relax and sleep better. Good luck.
