I'm in 15 weeks of my pregnancy I had lost my deep sleep at night by this I'm feeling very tired and sleepiness at early morning remedy please?

Normal: I know that you know and have probably read that this is completely normal. The hormones of pregnancy make us sleepy..... very sleepy. There's not much remedy, other than exercise and routine. Forcing yourself to follow a regimen during the day, and then maybe going to bed early at night. Up to 200mcg of caffeine/day is okay in pregnancy, so if you need a little pick me up, it's safe. ...Read more

Although it could be psychological and related to an earlier illness and anxiety about it recurring, I would recommend a full physical evaluation to rule out a medical explanation before assuming it is just psychological in origin. If there is not a medical reason work with a psychologist to treat anxiety. ...Read more

Seroquel (quetiapine) makes my un-dx condition worse. Symptoms are heart pain, almost paralyzed due to extreme somnolence, severe cognitive impairment. Causes?

Seroquel (quetiapine): Seroquel (quetiapine) can be very sedating -- more so depending on increased dose. It can also cause "cognitive impairment." I have no idea from here what you were like before the medication, but it sounds like you need a thorough medical evaluation. A psychiatrist may need to also be involved in your care -- and you need to tell whoever is prescribing the seroquel (quetiapine) about what you're experiencing. ...Read more

I struggle for more than 3 hours to go to sleep. I've tried all the home remedies given on the net. I don't want to take medicines. Suggest a remedy?

Get ready for sleep: A couple of easy tricks that may work if you've tried the usual "home remedies". Don't use any technology that emits led light (including computer, cell phone, tablet, etc -as these can drop your natural melatonin levels because your body thinks it is daylight - for 2 hours before bed.
