Sleeping Pills: Which is The Best and The Worst?

I heard Mid-Night is a good natural pill that helps you get to sleep or stay asleep. Anyone try this pill yet?  (Nov 28, 2011 | post #34)


I just want some sleep...

I agree with slatey, you should at least temporarily go to the doctor and get some meds. Just don't do ambien. You may have anxiety problems keeping you awake, maybe you could get treated for that also. Exercise during the day, read at night and listen to a set of a few songs that you can concentrate on as you fall asleep. Hopefully something will help.  (Nov 22, 2011 | post #7)


Sleep-Deprived New Parents Don't Have To Hit The (Sleepin...

I think exercise helps wear us down to the point that we need sleep. It also increases our healing and circulatory system. But you have to exercise at the right time. If I exercise before bed I find it hard to sleep, so for me earlier on in the day is better.  (Nov 21, 2011 | post #3)


Using Splenda/sucralose causes INSOMNIA !

I think the story about sucralose was very insightful. I'll look up my foods at home and see which items have it. I don't use Splenda in particular but maybe sucralose. Thanks for the info.  (Nov 18, 2011 | post #32)


Before you buy Natuzzi, ask me about my story

I'm so glad I didn't buy Natuzzi furniture. I bought enough lemon stuff in my life to satisfy my craving for pure punishment. Thanks for the warning.  (Nov 17, 2011 | post #84)


Ambien Puts McCain to Sleep

With the type of insurance these politicians get, you would think his doctor would prescribe something a lot better than Ambien for sleep.  (Nov 17, 2011 | post #11)


Ambien and Sleepwalking

I like Doc's story about the Rogaine, yuck. But similar things happened to me also, when I was on Ambien. It is scarey the lack of control I had over my behaviors while on Ambien. I stopped taking also.  (Nov 16, 2011 | post #9)


Ambien Adverse Reactions

Yep, I've experienced sleep walking,talking,exercising, and other while under the influence of ambien. I can't recommend it to anyone. After quitting it, falling asleep was definitely harder for a couple of weeks.  (Nov 14, 2011 | post #5)


Ambien vs Zolpidim

I didn't notice any difference between Ambien and the generic. I did have a lot of problems with sleep walking, and talking, never eating but I was found exercising (of all things) in my sleep. So in my case I could have lost weight in my sleep lol. I don't take it anymore.  (Nov 11, 2011 | post #133)


Meditation is THE cure for insomnia! (article)

I tried meditation so many times but for some reason it just doesn't work, but some people take to it right away. So it hasn't worked at all for my insomnia. Plus it's confusing, there are 100 different ways to meditate and some are more or less effective than others.  (Nov 11, 2011 | post #2)



Hi samjs. Welcome to the group. It looks like you need some help with anxiety rather than insomnia lol. Well that's all part of the insomnia game, breaking it down into its side-effects and treating each symptom. That's why often the sleeps meds don't work. I can think in bed for hours after I take sleep meds. The mind is strong so use it to get to sleep. Find things that distract you from thought, such as music or other noise. Meditation or other things to wear your mind out. I'm not saying these are the answers to your specific needs but treating each symptom and finding more is going to help you overcome insomnia.  (Nov 11, 2011 | post #2)


Treatment Options for Insomnia

I didn't find ambien to be useful at all. It only prolonged my sleep for a couple of hours and most of the time I was sleepwalking. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.  (Nov 10, 2011 | post #34)


Insomnia Remedies - Natural Minerals Prove Beneficial whi...

I agree with the article. It shows what we can do to improve our chances of getting to sleep. Warm bath, relaxing a couple of hours before bed and having a dark, quiet room to sleep in are all things I try to do.  (Nov 9, 2011 | post #4)



It must depend on the person. I never experienced any withdrawals from this. It was of course even harder to fall asleep without it then with it but at least I wasn't sleep walking all the time.  (Nov 8, 2011 | post #2)


How Many Ambien Patients Get Up At Night And Remember Not...

I quit taking Ambien once I realized there was no way to keep myself from sleepwalking. It took about a week to get used to falling asleep without Ambien but of course I woke up every 2 hours from insomnia. But with Ambien I only slept 3-4 hours anyway. It's not worth it.  (Nov 4, 2011 | post #441)
