Don't know your: Other medications (only see herbals listed). It may be alright but likely not the best choice. Please discuss with your psychiatrist first. In meantime, use good sleep hygiene. 1. Keep regular bed ; wakening time (includes weekends). Get up same time daily. 2. Make a regular, relaxing bedtime routine: warm bath or shower, aromatherapy, reading, or listening to gentle music. 3. Sleep in dark, >.
