Lately, I am having a lot of problems sleeping. I go to bed aroung 10 but I am up at 2 or three. I feel tired, but I can't sleep. I have had some really tough times lately so I know that is one of the cause of my lack of sleep. I brought a couple over the counter sleeping aids, but they do not work. I currently take Benadryl about 2 to three times a week. Anyone take Benadryl just for sleeping purposes? Have anyone tried Ambien or any other products? I tried the lavendar on my pillow turn off the tv etc have not work, any ideas tired.

I realise this is an old discussion but I hope you are not still having the same problem trying to sleep, that is awful. My mother takes Temazepan, sorry I don't know the american name, they certainly seem to help her have more restful nights sleep. As you have been going through hard times perhaps you should try yoga or meditation to relax your body then your mind would be able to turn off for sleep at night??!! good luck, I hope you feel better soon x
