I found that listening to some soft music helps me, they make special CD's "music to promote sleep" there is one that I have that I have never heard it all the way through! So maybe you might consider something like that to try, I know I copied the CD onto my computer and then put it on my MP3 player, and use it at night with my ear buds, it realy does work for me anyway! Also I have found for me that some pain meds, vicodin and ones with hydrocodone keeps me away, if I take one at 9 or 10 I will be away till 3 or4 in the morning, Oxycodone does not affect me that way. So you might try and see if there is anything your taking that might be affecting your sleep. Just some thing to consider.......Good Luck to You........
