I'd definitely try the natural therapies first. If you do have to ask the doctor, remind him or her that you're currently taking valium. A light sleep aid with Valium could become a pretty heavy one in a hurry, depending on what is prescribed. And you'd be surprised about
doctors forgetting/failing to look at your chart. It's happened to me twice.
EDIT...I have not fully awakened yet and in my head I combined your post with someone elses. Oops...
I'd still try the natural remedies first, though. I know what it's like not being able to sleep. It not only sucks, after a long time there are adverse health effects. So if you absolutely have to have a sleep aid, then do it.
