I would recommend Nytol rather than kalms you can buy it over the counter but limit its use to once a week or less as it's less effective the more you us it.

can u buy them anywhere? eg boots, asda?

Piriton knocks me out, better than valerian etc. You could try that ?

I don't sleep well either so can completly Sympathise.

BigS you have to buy them over the counter in a pharmacy so Boots etc they are antihistmaines so nothing too sinister

Sorry to hear this...not sleeping is the worse.

Can I ask: what is restless leg? blush

restless leg - where the legs twitched in their sleep...ill be quite happy to chop them off and sew it back on in the mornings! grin
