Hi, I'm having trouble staying asleep at night. I wake up around 1 am every night. Is there a safe over the counter medication I could take? Trouble sleeping
Insomnia. 2 over the counter supplements used are melatonin start at 0.5 to 1 mg a night and valarian 400 mg Do not use both use either one or the other. F/u/ w/ doc
Yes. . There are several over the counter products that may help. My favorite one is called Natural Vitality Calmful Sleep and it is a lovely blend of magnesium, l-theanine, and GABA with some melatonin to help calm an active mind and promote longer, restful sleep. Melatonin works for some patients (3-5mg, chewable or dissolvable work better than swallowed) and Benadryl and anti-histamines usually help.
