    Have you tried herbs? Sometimes those help you calm down.

    What are you waking up from, panic attack, or just can't sleep?

    I never can sleep usually. I found marijuana (which is not the best for everyone) works for me sometimes. Otherwise I usually just kinda fight it and hope I crash eventually

    I'm averaging 2 to 3 hours sleep a night since 2008. insomnia has become my number one issue. I've tried melatonin, valerian, kava kava, Ambien, weed, ativan, passionflower, etc. I still wake up 2 or 3 hours after going to bed and don't go back to sleep, but I will eventually pummel insomnia into submission even if I have to resort to kicking it in the...........

    Valerian root, 5htp and melatonin work for some people.

    I have no clue. I have problems sleeping as well.

    Either that, or I'm just a night owl.

    When i first started taking Klonopin it made me sleep so well. But I have developed a strong tolerance to it and it no longer has that effect on me. Its not even possible for me to fall asleep before 2. I have tried everything.
