Is there anything you can do for this? I've had it for about 2 years now and it's off and on but lately it's been horrible I couldn't tell u the last time I've gotten more then 5 hours of sleep at a time
I had this problem for a while... i tried a over the counter sleep aid and it helped a lot, but mine was more going to sleep rather than staying asleep.
Its the crap in turkey... i can never remember the name.

Marley mellow moods. Trust me! 2 bottles 10 hour coma.
Mines falling asleep too I hate this.. Ive been taking Advil PM for it but it never does anything for me
You're thinking of trptophan, which is eventually metabolized into melatonin. Melatonin is what is common sold in drug stores as a sleep aid.
I mentioned it last night on tbyc thread. Marley moods is a black decaf tea with melatonin and valerian root. I work 24for hour shifts and when I struggle with sleep adjustment, these really work. No benadryl hangover either. Good taste as well. Oh and turning off the tv helps.
So much this. Getting away from the bright screens of tv, laptops, tablets, and cell phones a fair amount of time before bed will do wonders.
Edit To Add:
From the attached:
“Artificial light exposure between dusk and the time we go to bed at night suppresses release of the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin, enhances alertness and shifts circadian rhythms to a later hour—making it more difficult to fall asleep,” says Charles Czeisler, PhD, MD, Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. “This study reveals that light-emitting screens are in heavy use within the pivotal hour before sleep. Invasion of such alerting technologies into the bedroom may contribute to the high proportion of respondents who reported that they routinely get less sleep than they need.”
