My sleeping problems continue even after 8 months of suffering & almost continuously using prescription Drugs.5 Htp worked great for me for about 20 days back in September last yr.
I really like it as it was the only herbal sleep aid which worked.
Even prescription drugs wise only Zopiclone works for me to this extent that it puts me to sleep most of the nights but usually after 3 to 4 hrs , I am wide awake & then just cannot fall asleep.
I have tried 6-7 prescription drugs & many Herbal ones like: Melatonin, Valerian, A combination one called sleep 8 (Combo of Valerian, Melatonin, Hops etc). Phospotidyl Serene but nothing really works.
I try to maintain a good sleep hygiene but do have Sleep Apnea(Therapy is not working well).
My Candida/Diet update I will put on a separate post in a few minutes.
