I'd like to know if anyone has had luck with these for their insomnia? If so, which ones do you recommend?
I have been on a prescribed sleeping pill (Trazodone) also used for depression for 8 yrs. My insomnia began when I lost my Dad to colon cancer. He suffered a massive heart attack on New years eve, right before my eyes. Dad and I were extremely close and skated together for many years. The holidays season is a difficult one for me. Just the sights and sounds of Christmas make me sad. I took anti-depressants for a few yrs., but the side effects were too much. And trust me, I've tried them all.
The trazodone still works, but is not as effective as it used to be. Add to that I am close to menopause, so my hormones are causing more insomnia. I've tried other sleeping pills, they helped with sleep, but I couldn't handle the side effects. I also know they shouldn't be used long term.
I've used herbal products for other health issues, and have had success. So would like to get some suggestions from others who suffer with insomnia. Thank you in advance.
