    Insomnia

    Discussion started by PUMPKIN ESCOBAR - Oct 19, 2004

    Every night I lie down at 11:00 pm and stare at my ceiling and count the number of times the heater goes on and off until 4:15 am when I finally fall asleep. I get up three and a half hours later and I'm pissed off until about 11:00 when I finally wake up. I've been taking over the counter sleeping pills but they aren't doing shit and I'm this close to going back on presciption pills. You guys got any tips or methods to fall asleep without them?

    man, i had really bad sleeping problems for over a month. one week i think i only got 6 hours total. best thing to do is lift weights and drink beer. make yourself tired or watch tv until you wanna kill someone. either way you will fall asleep sooner or later.

    Yeah, I had your problem all through the summer. Get off the OTC sleeping pills right now, they're all the same and they're all fucking useless after a couple days.

    You can try the herb Valerian, that helps alot of people. Didn't help me though, I ended up taking 10 at a time and still wouldn't be able to sleep.

    Prescription wise, there's Ambien but you shouldn't take it long term. It works, though.

    I'm off the Amb now, I'm taking a supplement called 5-HTP and it's been working better than anything else. It's not really a sedative, what it does is it puts serotonin in your brain which is the chemical that regulates sleep. More serotonin, easier time falling asleep on your own. You take it a couple hours before bed on an empty stomach, I highly recommend trying it out. No side effects for me.

    Anyways, if you smoke weed, get a nice indica strain and smoke it an hour or two before bed and you should fall asleep immediately. The downside of this is that you usually don't dream when you go to bed blunted, which I miss. It can also get expensive.

    Beer will help you fall asleep, as we all know, but you get low quality rest and wake up feeling like shit...

    Sometimes I like to drink coffee up to the time I go to bed, and than my dreams go past me like race cars on the Indy 500...Zoom..Zoom.. Just kidding on that one, place the movie quote on that one and you can have a cookie....

    Anyways I'm feeling pretty wired and productive and all that shit, it's probably time for me to end this post.

    velarian is just supposed to help with restful sleep, not gettin you to sleep.

    all the otc are just benadryl, so he is right

    what you want to do is hit yourself with a bat

    i've had chronic insomnia since this one day when the girl i fell in love with told me that her and my best friend had fucked. that was probably one of the most fucked up days. anyway, i don't think about her too much anymore. atleast, i try not to. but i still have the insomnia.

    Buy this movie and watch it every night. You should have no problems falling asleep after that.
