"Tim Tam, do you feel like the Power to Sleep helps you stay asleep?"
I can't say for everybody.
I can say this.
I have for a long time had trouble sleeping. This Power to Sleep puts me out like a light.
I take it, and 20 minutes later I'm asleep. I can't believe it.
The bottle says, take 2 before bedtime, and at first I did take 2.
After a few nights of that, I decided to take only one pill to see what happen. Again, out like a light in 20 minutes, so I didn't need to take 2.
Been taking one for a year or more, and it always works.
So, you might with one, after checking with your doctor, and if it works, stay with one.
If it doesn't work, try taking 2.
Or, take one, it gets you to sleep for an hour, but you keep waking up. Then you might try taking a second one.
Another tip is, I sleep with a heating pad on low, every night. It's like a child's teddy bear. I put it on my chest, and it expands the blood vessels, and eases tension on my chest, making it not have to work as hard. So it serves two purposes.
Also, you might try a sound machine of some sort, one you can order on the net and put on your nightstand; a fan on low, to help block out noise which might help with sleep.
I have trouble with sound, and have a box fan in every room, to help block out noise from my mean next door neighbors.
The reduced sound waves that get through my windows and storm windows, then meet up with the sound waves of my box fans, which I can cut on any speed, and so reduce the noise level of the incoming sound, as friendly sound waves compete with incoming harsh sound waves, and lower the volume.
Also, I don't usually stay in the rooms where the box fans are (I don't want to hear that sound), but am in another room, on the other side of the house from my mean neighbors, so the sound has a harder time going through walls and fan noise to get to me.
If the sound is on your ceiling from an overhead apartment, that's a new one on me.
Try sleeping with a fan or box fan in the room where you sleep.
I would consider ordering a sound machine (average 6 inches wide by 6 inches deep, I'll say), hoisting it up to your ceiling somehow (put 3 or 4 cardboard boxes on top of a card table), and see if it helps reduce the incoming sound, with the softer sound waves of the sound machine.
Consider moving your bed around to where the sound machine is better between you and the overhead noise; consider sleeping or watching TV in another room and is less affected by the overhead noise.
