See below: Questions about changing medications or doses of current meds are best addressed to the doc who proscribed them. A more natural option might be the addition of melatonin before bedtime. Discuss with doc. Also important to ascertain cause(s) of insomnia—stress, caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, eating too much too late, noisy environment, bright lights. Establish sleep regimen.
