Re: Sleeping

My sleep doctor said I should take melatonin 3 or 5mg. He said it helps you to fall asleep. He also said it helps with paransomonia . I got up while sleeping and ran into the wall and had to go to the emergency room. I also have violent nightmares. Anyone else with this problem.

Re: Sleeping

Had sleep problems, but not to your extent. I found melatonin helpful, but there are those who haven't seen any benefit from it either.

I'd encourage you to google sleep hygeine and see if there's anything in the list of options that you feel you could change, even if you don't see how it could help.

A big one for me is exercise. If I'm not active enough during the day, it seriously messes with my sleep.

The bigger one is routine. Having the set bedtime routine so it preps my mind for sleep.

The one thing you'll read is about caffeine being a big problem; for me it's the opposite; since what keeps me awake tends to be the distractions and random thoughts, having a bit of caffeine can actually help me focus on sleep.

Re: Sleeping

I have insomnia. It takes me for ever to fall asleep. My doctor put me on 3 to 5mg of melatonin.

Re: Sleeping

One of the things I notice about sleep is that I am extremely light sensitive. Even the red glow from a digital alarm clock can upset my ability to sleep.

What works for me has been a sleep mask and the room kept as dark as possible. Apparently lots of people are light sensitive.

Re: Sleeping

My 14 yr old daughter takes melatonin, 1.5 mg 30 minutes to an hour before bed. Without it she takes 2 hrs to fall asleep, but with it she falls asleep quickly. I read somewhere that if you do not make adequate melatonin then it works well, but if you do it helps you fall asleep barely any faster than not taking it.

If we are able to improve our sleep habits our daily lives would improve.
