Im wondering did your doctors give you any reasons as to why they wont prescribe sleeping tablets or similar sleep aids? is there an underlying issue that would prevent you from taking sleeping pills? I know that a lack of sleep, or restless and fractured sleep is awful in regards to anxiety and depression. I can only sleep thanks to the meds I am on- although many people have found natural alternatives- i hope someone can shed some light on some of those for you? And even though I take prescription sedatives, my sleep is still very disturbed and i wake exhausted.
I hope you find some relief soon,
Hello and I have been in your place where I could not sleep. I could not fall asleep and would toss, turn and yes cry as I had to get up at 5:30 AM.
What worked best for me is Trazodone 100mg. I know Seroquel is another choice if your physician does not want to give your a sleeping medication.
I would certainly rediscuss your problem with your Doctor.
