Try metatone 10mg. You can get it from Sams club, Costco or even Kroger’s. It’s not habit forming. I took it after detoxing off of narco. Although you may not get a full 7 or 8 hours, it helped me get 6 hrs at first anyway. Good luck
Hi there. I think too, thinking about what you are doing before you fall to sleep is important. If you are doing something stimulating like looking at a computer or tablet screen, this can interfere. I make my son decompress. No school work right before bed which is a challenge for him as a busy guy trying to fit it all in. Are you under stress with exams upcoming or anything like that? The usual things like cool room, white noise like a fan, dark all help. Don't eat too much before bed too I hear. (but I can't go to sleep on an empty stomach). The above may be melatonin? That's a natural product sold just about everywhere these days that does aid in sleep. It is non addicting and tends to work pretty well. Let us know how you are doing!
I have no idea why metatone would help with anything, let alone sleep. It's got a ton of sugar in it, which isn't he best thing to take before going to bed. It has a lot of alcohol in it, which might help with sleep but again not the best solution. It's basically thiamine combined with some mineral salts, and has a lot of sodium in it, again not such a good thing. It does have one mineral in it that some find helpful for sleep, calcium. But magnesium is usually better for this especially if combined with the calcium. I would try some melatonin, as it's one of the safest things out there to take. About a 1mg dosage is enough. Too much has been proven to make it not work. There are other sleep aids you can try as well. But the best thing is to figure out how to relax your system overall, not just when you're about to go to sleep. Getting plenty of exercise -- not right before sleeping because that can actually wake you up -- and practicing meditation -- again, not right before bed, that can also wake you up -- might allow you to relax to sleep better. If I read you right, once you fall asleep, you're getting plenty of sleep, so it's a smallish problem, you just need to find a way to turn it off when it's sleepy time. Some experimentation will probably get you there.
Hi nishanalpah, I do understand really well your problem. When you're thinking too much, it's really tough to fall asleep quickly. Do you have big personnal problems or something? Maybe it can be really stressfull through all your student things. If you're feeling good enough and you just can't fall asleep easily like you would, melatonin is a great choice. I do take this supplement by spray and it's effective. Let me know if you want some information.
The only intervention that works for me is ingesting CBD/THC. When I know I am looking, without a doubt, at a terrible night of being wide awake with countless thoughts, worries, and sleeplessness, I go for the THC (Indica) alone. Effects are fast! First my brain STARTS to slow down (non-stop thinking, anxiety, frustration, mental exhaustion) and then total body relaxation. As I experience the body effect, my raging thoughts are gone "mind turns off" and I just feel sleepy and very comfortable. It's bliss, I sleep straight through the night (I was rarely able to do before) and wake up refreshed and I feel rested. CBD alone helps many people sleep. Sometimes, I use a combination of CBD:THC. I experimented until I found what worked for me. I also have Epilepsy so I get the added benefits/protection (?) of managing my seizures.
