I also suffer from sleep problems sine I was a teenager but never took anything except melatonin . I was on a variety of medication last year since I went almost 5 days without any sleep ( which was cause by severe back pain), I was admitted to the hospital and then they put me on several different medications ( trazadone, tranazapam, Seroquel xr 200mg, , Seroquel 200mg, and clonazepam .5 mg twice a day. I am currently only taking Seroquel xr 50 mg and .5 mg clonazepam at night and in the morning . I wake up at least 3-4 times at night and at times have difficulty falling asleep and getting back to sleep when I wake up. I was wondering if it possible to take melatonin as well with these medications. Also , I have heard that Nocturest might help but I can't take it . The ingredients are magnesium citrate, theanine, melatonin, valerian, passionflower, lemon balm, hops and camomile. I also have started drinking lavender and camomile tea just before I go to bed for the past two days and that seems to work as well as taking the clonazepam pill at least 30 min to an hour before I go to sleep instead of just before I sleep. I seems to be working so far.
