@livertrex I had serious sleep problems pre-transplant. Nothing worked…I tried organic and medical methods. I learned that sleep would come to me when needed. I couldn't force it no matter what I took or tried. I realized that sleep would come when my body was ready. So…I watched Netflix and read a ton of books. I found on line (You tube) lots of calming and sleep inducing music. I slept during the day if I could and if not just rested a lot. I still listen to calming music to help me sleep. It's a rough ride but hang in there…it really does get better..
