No meds help me sleep

I stopped sleeping thru the night about a year ok. I wake every 90 mins. Basically 11am 1pm 3pm 5pm without fail. It takes me 30 to an hour to fall asleep.
I have tried every sleep med.
10 seroquel nope. 10 Valium nope.
10 stillnox nope. Plus a few others.
My doctor is getting frustrated.
What works the best?

  1. Hi . I can see why your doctor is getting frustrated. Have you ever tried congitive behavioral therapy - insomnia? That is by far the most successful treatment and it has become the frontline treatment for insomnia. Here is an article about CBT-I that might interest you: https://insomnia.sleep-disorders.net/cbt.

    1. Hi Lori. I work for a UK based charity that offers free CBTi for anyone with self reported symptoms of insomnia. Maybe check out the website? It could be useful for some of your users. Its overcome.org.uk . Let me know if its of interest and i'd be happy to set up a meeting with you to discuss

    2. What a great resource, . Thanks for sharing! Best wishes. - Lori (Team Member)
