Insomnia

I can't sleep anymore. I have gotten 9 hours in the last 3 days. I had been averaging 5 hours a night for 2 weeks before then. It has gotten out of control. I am tired, not exhausted though. It is to the point now though that I can no longer focus. When I lay down, I just can't get to sleep. Anyone else have this problem?

Hi, my name is Matt, and I have a speeding problem

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

This is what I have recommended to people who have asked me about this before. Don't eat or drink anything about 2 hours before you go to bed (not always easy, but helps). Go out to the drug store (Walgreens, Osco, etc...) and pick up some Nytol sleep aid (can be purchased without a prescription), follow the instructions. Count on getting at least 6 hours (maybe more) of uninterrupted sleep and waking up completely refreshed. For the natural alternative, some Docs have even recommended using Melatonin (usually found with the vitamins) as a sleep aid as well. One 3mg. tablet should do the trick. I prefer the Nytol though, seems to work more consistently for me. Nighty night.

Dr Rob and can only suggest one thing....

Marijuana

go to google and do a search "marijuana helps sleep"

Rob

Let me edit and say that I no way claim to be a doctor and I do not promote the use of "illegal drugs" in anyway shape or form.

I guess I'm blessed... can fall asleep any place, any time. Even standing up (like on the "L" when I used to take public transportation). I once fell asleep at a Charlie Daniels concert. My problem is staying awake!

head out to sharper image, buy one of those relaxing noises machines. i live right next to 94 and a busy street, cicero, so the sounds of cars make me sleep. although, late summer nights, 2-5 am, bikes going 150 with loud exhausts wake me up

As was recommended above Melatonin helps tremendously. It is naturally produced in the body. One thing, light stops the bodies production of melatonin and can diminish the effect of the store bought as well. Take it about 15 minutes prior to wanting to go to bed and make sure lights,tv, etc are turned off.
You can always combine this with the "taking matters into your own hands" method as well.
When I use melatonin I always have the best dreams. Good luck.

I second the sex thing, if anything it's a stress relief.

Yup same here. Helps me fall right asleep. Before I started taking it, some people said a side affect was having vivid dreams. They weren't kidding. It makes you dream like crazy.

Good stuff.
