I have insomnia and I want to?

Jess Asked: I have insomnia and I want to?

Try and sleep a lot more early than going to bet so late. Is there any over the counter pills that I can take to sleep earlier or what should I do?

I work shift work so my sleep patterns are completely messed right up , and I barely sleep as it is, try taking vitamin d tablets or melatonin which is a natural chemical produced in the body to help sleep
It works for me
Good luck

Counting pills Answered:
A common sleeping pill given in uk is zopiclone. Docs here will usually give you a 5-7 and for most people that helps the body clock get back around.

If you are getting the sleep in, but its at the worst times the best way around it is NOT to take pills, but to set your alarm for what time you want to be starting the day and FORCE yourself up. You will be so grumpy but it does work because you are so tired at the end of the day.. it takes about three days to be comfortable and easy, but it always works.

If you are staying awake for days and days on end then that really is insomnia and the doc is the best place to go. Over the counter meds won't get you to sleep, but they will keep you asleep. They just aren't strong enough to knock you out though.
I get bouts of insomnia around every 2-5 months (because I worry too much) I get help for that if it goes over five days.. but if its just a few days then I cope with it and when I finally sleep I revert to the forcing myself up to claim my body clock back =)

Lastly – Stay off the PC if you want to sleep – I have finally admitted to myself that it doesn't help! =) Imagine trying to sleep with a torch shining in your eyes.. well.. the screen isn't as bright as a torch, but it still lights up your face in a dark room 😉

Good luck with it hun. Its a pain but I'm sure you'll get a handle on it =)
