Can anyone recommend a homeopathic remedy for nervous exhaustion?

Complex problem: "nervous exhaustion" is a vague description of a chronic problem. To find an appropriate remedy, an experienced homeopath would need to take your case comprehensively. You would need to describe what you experience far beyond its name ("nervous exhaustion"). Any of 3000-4000 remedies could be the one you need. Collaboration between the homeopath & your regular doctors is wise also.

Rest is good: Adequate sleep, avoidance of stimulants, and alcohol, proper nutirition, hydration, exercise... And of course adequate sleep. Naps of less than 1/2 hour probably wont help - uninterupted sleep for at least 6-7 preferrably 8 hours a night helps. If one has lost a lot of sleep it can take a week or so to get back to normal.
