I have had a hard time sleeping as a child. Now that I am 43 it is very bothersome to me. I don't drink or take any drugs besides my thyroid medicine. I have tried Ambiem and lunesta. Neither worked. I am lucky if I get 12 to 14 hours of sleep a week. So now I have been on Restoril 30mg for about a week now and I still can't sleep. I am about to loose it. Why isn't these meds that the doctors say should knock me out, not working. Please I need some advice from people who have severe insomnia? Any advice would be welcome.

Have you tried any of the natural remedies, such as just taking a Melatonin supplement at night?

Learn more Melatonin details here.

After having problems with insomnia for years and trying many medications, it's what I've found works best for me. If it's okay for you try it, you may want to give it a go, it's available over the counter in most grocery and drug stores.

I understand what you are experiencing. I did take Melatonin for some weeks but then it stopped working. I find wonderful results from taking L-Triyptophan 500 mg. It works like a charm. I take 3 tablets (recommended dosage ) at bedtime and before long zzzzz. Another wonderful thing about it is that you sleep at least 7 hours without interruption. Safe to take and often I will take one during the day for stress and it also helps for depression as well.
I think you will be glad you tried it. Good luck and Sweet Dreams. Can be purchased at local health food store or Vitamin shop.

Restoril works fine, take some benadryl with it. That natural crap is crap don't wast your money on that. Do you drink coffee before bed? Ask you doctor for a barbiturate as a last resort. If that don't help you will have to go to a sleep clinic.

Restoril does not work because someone deemed it too strong for people (use ambien instead) and it is a benzo. From what I hear mylan 5050 might be available again within the year!

The 123 pills where from novel labs; a novel 123 is 30 mg same as mylan 5050. They both work _excellent_ !

I was told by my pharmacy that they don't have the brand name restoril now, instead the generic temazepam; a benzo like xanax.
