    Yes I have sleeping problems. The doctor is trying to work them out, but so far everything he has put me on has failed.

        On the weekends, I don't sleep, I think it's because of the exitment I get that it's the weekend. The weekdays I sleep .

          lol, if I didn't have class and work to look forward to in the morning, I probably wouldn't sleep either and instead spend my time bringing up my ranks in various Xbox games and working on my site

          MGM out

              Is anybody taking meds for their sleeping troubles? The doctor put me on Trazodone (50 mg a night) and I had to stop taking it due to side effects. Then I was on Mirtazapine (Remeron) (30 mg a night) and it didn't work at all.

                I'm going to try Camomile this week:

                Put it in an incense burner (hot water with a candle below). I'm assured that it makes you very sleepy

                    Chamomile doesn't really work for me, been there already . I've sipped probably all the tea stores around here sell as well as many from local shops that can bring in things others cannot.

                    Herbal remedies have helped with sickeness and the flu, but not for my sleeping habbits. I am lucky to get 5 hours of sleep per night.

                    The past week has been rather intensive as well and I still can't get anymore sleep than I already am. I was hanging sheetrock, laying hardwood flooring, painting and working 2-3 saws - still was very active after 3 consecutive 12-14 hour work days.

                    Afterwards, came home to work at SON and help Jason and Michael.

                    Never taken medication though.

                      I have a couple of sleep disorders that keep me from getting a good night's sleep.

                      One of them is Restless Leg Syndrome that has gotten noticeably worst over the last few months. The good news is that there is now a medication for this that I've been taking for 2 weeks and it wworks great. The bad news is that even with insurance this medicine costs about $51/month and I'll need to take it for the rest of my life.

                      The other problem is Night Terrors. This usually is a childhood problem and is very rare in adults. Nonetheless I've got it. Usually at least once a week I will have a night terror that creates extreme panic and I'll wake up yelling and screaming in the middle of the night. Scares the hell out of my wife when I do that.

                        I have to take Ambien EVERYDAY.

                        Bad thing is, it is intended to be a temporary solution.

                          I've been sleeping less as of late. I get about 5-6 hours of sleep a night.

                            I never sleep properly in the summer, although I guess that is natural. I can get away with five hours a night, in the winter though I need eight to nine and still feel tired after that much .
