For over a decade I have had insomnia, and even longer than that I have suffered from migraines. I cannot however go to sleep when I have a migraine, no matter what I take. I really hate taking sleeping pills, but if I go two straight days without sleep, I'll give in and take one. I don't want to make my health worse by being stubborn and not taking something I obviously need. I do however try natural remedies for sleep first, like Sleepytime Tea recommended to me by another mylotter.

try an OTC supplement called Melatonin....it's nonhabit forming, helps you naturally fall asleep without feeling like you've been hit by a tank and you wake up naturally. It is used also for people who suffer jetlag, cluster heaches and also an added plus it has anit-aging benefits (probably b/c you actually get the sleep you need.) If the 6mg is too much half it. I notice if I take a whole tablet around 9pm I have a harder time getting up in the morning....so usually I take a half.

Hi anu! Unless prescribed by my physician, i don't take any sedatives, including sleeping pills. Don't make it a routine, whenever you get severe headache. It may affect your nervous system in the long run! Instead, try Ayurvedic medicines, which may not have any sideeffects! Have a nice day!

I am a very, very light sleeper. I often wake up five, sometimes eight or ten times a night, because of noises in the house or in the apartment complex. I have a lot of trouble going back to sleep afterwards, and it makes me very restless and cranky during the day. Most of the time though, it's not really THAT important, however when I go to sleep the night before a day off, I'll take a single Melatonin pill. That usually keeps me from waking up during the night, and also lets me sleep a little longer than usual (about 8 hours as opposed to the 5-6 I usually get). I wouldn't dare take any on a workday though, because I tend to be groggy for a few hours after I wake up, and I can't afford to be groggy at work.

When I had some Lunesta from the doctor it helped. I didn't take it all the time just when I needed the sleep and knew I had eight hours to spare. I do not have any more, and wish that I did. Sometimes the Tylenol p.m. would help, but I have weird dreams on it.

I actually try to use the pills less often as possible...it doesn't matter which one, pain killers or sleeping pills or whatever. Last few weeks I don't sleep much because I need to study a lot so sometimes I just sleep for 4 or 5 hours per night and in the morning I have horrible headaches and only if I can't stand them I take a pill. i really don't wanna get used to the pills but I know that there are people who have much stronger headaches than I do so I find it normal to take painkillers or sleeping pills to be able to sleep.

Once or maybe twice a year I would take a seditive, no more than that. Especially if I worrying. Headaches dont borther me.

I did for a little while, but they didn't seem to work for me. I am on depression medication and one of the major side effects is insomnia. My dr. prescribed Rozerem, but all it did was get me about 4 solid hours of sleep that were laced with horrific nightmares. I genereally just try and follow a regular nightly routine now which seems to work just fine.
