Have you tried white noise or self-hypnosis? I have this app for my iPhone which I find very helpful. My dh did some hypnotherapy many years ago and the therapist provided him with some relaxation/sleep tapes which were also quite useful.
What is it that stops you going to sleep? For me it used to be thoughts whirring and being unable to shut my mind down until 2 a.m. Very unwisely I used alcohol to 'help' with this and to be honest have been very surprised not to have a return to the whirring since I gave up.
Do you wait until you are exhausted to go to bed? Could that in itself be the problem?
Linking the patient UK leaflet for you although I assume you've already looked at it - no great surprises in it.
I now have 2 White noise apps that mAy be good for my tinnitus as well as the sleep problems si thank yiu for the suggestion
ive also used alcohol to 'help' in the past but more recently, have taken my DPs tramadol and/ or diazepam I know I shouldn't take someone elses meds but in the absence of anything else, I don't know what to do. I just need sleep.
