Thank you! Melatonin does not work at all. Cbd was tried but made me feel energized. Tried a herbal product with kava kava, valerian, passion fruit, araghanawista, no help, also amino acids for sleep. None of which have helped . I have many nights where I do not sleep at all. This has been going on for 7 mos. Kaiser permanente just keeps trying different meds. I am too old to take them have gone back on Trazadone x2and last week was trialed on Zoloft which was a Disaster. Ativan was somewhat helpful but only for 2 hrs of sedated ‘sleep” although the Ativan did calm me down and helped with leg tremors but was not long lasting. this is just another bad drug with side effects. I am hard of hearing white noise haven’t tried thinking of light therapy… anything proven effective that is not a Addictive.
Thank you

I've been reading about your sleep problem and the different treatments that you have tried. I have used 25 mg of Trazodone at night for a number of years. For me, Trazodone helps with sleep and pain (pain will, of course, interfere with sleep). If my pain is very severe, I will add a small dose of Gabapentin (100 mg) in the mid-afternoon or early evening. If I take Gabapentin later I wake up with a foggy feeling.

You say that Melatonin has not helped. I'm wondering how long you tried it? Just a week or perhaps longer than that? It will often take a while for sleep meds or supplements to work.

I've read of members in Connect who have used time-released Melatonin when regular Melatonin has not worked.

Have you tried a time-released formula of Melatonin?
