Assessing sleep: Taking muscle relaxants or NyQuil is not going to help you to get quality/natural sleep. I would suggest talking to your physician about getting a sleep study to try to determine what is causing your sleep difficulties. You noted that you are on Prilosec; reflux can interfere with sleep quality at times too, so you might speak to your doctor about evaluating that aspect as well.
