Hi Theron, Welcome to healing well. I am so sorry for all you have been through and still are going through. I also have trouble sleeping at night due to many physical illnesses (MS and an autonomic disorder) which cause severe pain in my body in combination with this I have Major Depression, Anxiety/Panic & PTSD all of which I have had well before my physical illnesses. I take Effexor XR for my depression which helps to keep me awake most times during the day and Restoril 30mg at night to help me sleep. The Restoril is the only medication out of the whole lot of sleep aids on the market that has helped for me. It is a Benzodiazepine & class 5 controlled substance which can be habit forming for some people but, it is approved for long-term usage and safe for this.
