Medical marijuana for sleep disorders?

Erica, I have tried all of the things you mentioned. It gets very expensive trying any of these things several times a week for a month or two just to see if they offer any relief. Medicare and insurance will not cover any of it. I do not think I have ever had a provider suggest alternative treatments. Only if I suggest something will they ever say it might be worth trying?

@mazeppabob You're right. Massage, yoga, acupuncture and some other options are not covered by Medicare. This is unfortunate.

Psychotherapy is covered by insurance however. A therapist may be able to help assess your sleep hygiene and help you explore interventions such as mindfulness as a way to reduce and/or cope with the dreams.

Have you ever seen a therapist who specializes in sleep disorders?
