Have you guys ever tried melatonin? Its a natural sleep aid and works really well for me but there are a few tricks to it. Dont eat before bed, do something relaxing. Take the melatonin with some water on an empty stomach 30min before your bed time and you maybe out! I have trouble falling asleep sometimes and this does the trick, but i have noticed in the past it doesnt maintain sleep over a period of time all that well (then again i was on prednisone). You dont wake up groggy either thats what i like about
it versus most sleep aids.
