can you recommend a good herbal treatment for insomnia?

Dr. Ernest Bordini
Clinical Psychology 32 years experience
Risks and benefits: It is important to start w/ medical evaluation. Otc, herbal, and nonprescription remedies are not entirely benign and most have warnings about drug interactions, and more than short term use. Cognitive-behavioral therapy with relaxation training and sleep hygiene has been found to be more effective than meds: http://cpancf.Com/articles_files/psychotherapeuticotcherbalinsomniatreatments.Asp.

A 21-year-old member asked:

Sometimes I have headaches and sleeplessness. Am I getting anxiety disorder?

2 doctor answers12 doctors weighed in
Dr. Sherin Ibrahim Howett
Sleep Medicine 18 years experience
It Depends: Before defaulting to anxiety as the reason for your symptoms, your doctor would want to rule out other serious causes. Headaches are very non specific and require a thorough evaluation that can include a headache diary, imaging studies and possible medications. Insomnia or sleeplessness is also a multi-factorial problem that warrants an evaluation.
