I crawled in bed at 10:20 pm, incredibly tired, bored, and prime to sleep.|
Two hours later, no luck. And I just now finally hopped out of bed, convinced anything else should work better.
Why do I even try?
Recommend drugs, people. It's time to medicate.
Nyquil: not just for when you've got a cold.
nyquil is good. it knocks you out after 20 minutes although I experiance hang over symptoms when I wake up.
Read a boring book. I have a long list of books that would put you to sleep within 10 minutes :)
do you want drugs that you have to go to the doctor for or what? i'm an expert at this.
that's the only OTC's I think...
there is L-tryptophan? got some leftover turkey around?
Melatonin is also used...I tried it...didn't work.
Yeah, I'd have to say diphenhydramine works pretty well.
Did you know you have to be age of majority in Canada to buy it? I thought that was pretty weird, I got carded the other day for it.
beer is cheap, abundant, readily available, and a cns depressant. put on some mogwai, mix with a nice dull book, and that usually puts me down.
alternately i've heard people have success with melatonin, though its probably worth reading up on first.
are the two controlled meds for sleeping...
a bowl of ice cream, a glass of warm milk and/or sex are other things my DR has suggested...
Weird, that should say 1:50 a.m. :P

I bet I'm late and I don't know medicine you can get 'over there', but a milk with honey is always good for that. Also a hot shower or even a hot bath should help. *thinks*
over the counter sleep aids are pretty effective
for occasional use~ the ingredient so effective
in tylenol p.m. is used in other meds without the pain killer,
'cause if you don't need it, you shouldn't take it~
wait. you were serious, right? ahem.

I have pretty poor sleep, too. It seems that regular, heavy exercise helps me best to regulate sleep.

When I want to get my sleep pattern back on track, I set my alarm for 8am and get up just after for a few days. Pretty soon my body gets the idea.
The disadvantage of this approach is that you lose a day or two to tiredness.
Hmmm... where is scsi
when you need him?
"No. You need healthy, natural sleep. Chew some valerian root and get more exercise."

I went running and biking yesterday (the day of that post) but it didn't help.
