I have really bad insomnia, anxiety & depression. :/ I find that xanax works the best for me.. but the problem is I have to take like 5-6 bars just to get a lil Sleep .. I was wondering if anyone knew of something better I can take? W.out having to take a lot. & something that makes me actually SLEEP thru the night, instead of waking up evrry 2 hrs! Would love some helpful answers♡ Thank You

I also deal with insomnia and I've been using Valerian root. It works really well, I take 3 pills an hour before bed and it relaxes me so much that I just fall right to sleep. Have you ever tried it before? I also take another supplement for anxiety called holy basil. It really helps to take the edge off when my thoguths won't stop racing! You can also try 5 htp and St Johns wort if you'd like. Just remember, if you do decide to try any of these supplements, be sure to let your doctor know just incase they won't work with your current medications.

If you have any more questions/concerns, please post back so I can further assist you. :)

No if you are taking 5-6 bars just to sleep, clearly their are other factors that could be causing your insomnia problems. What does your Doctor think?

Ambien, also know as zolpidem or Silnox is the miracle pill for me! I suffer severe insomnia! It's so hard for me to get to sleep and when I did I would wake up usually every hour. Ambien with a sleep application called sleep easily is amazing! Ambien you can become dependent on, but for a good nights sleep it's worth it. I take a warm bath, then take the ambien and listen to the sleep easily which you can download to your phone or iPad and I am out within minutes. I have never actually gotten to
Is ten to the entire Version and it's Bly 26 minutes long. I used to wake up hourly and now I can sleep a full 8 hours and not feel groggy in the morning! Good luck as I know finding a way to get you the sleep you need and want seems impossible! Talk to your doctor......the 3 names I listed are the same drug just different name in what country you are in! :)

I take Trazodone for Insomnia, 100mg b/4 bed, after a small snack. Trazodone does cause some drowsiness during the day, in the beginning. But if you stick it out for 30 to 45 days, that drowsiness during the day, disappears! I have been on it for 45 days. It is usually prescribed as, Take 1 or 2 tablets b/4 bed, (50mg tabs). You could start at the smaller dose of 1 tab, and see if it works for you.
