Anxiety and stress
Nov 22, 2005
What can I do to get some sleep? Over the counter sleep aids don't help. I have been trying to maintain a normal as possible schedule. I seem to do OK during the day at work, but then coming home at night I can't get all the noise to stop in my head. What if the meds don't work, etc, etc. I feel like I am going to lose it.

Speak to your doctor about getting some more effective medications. Trazodone is very effective and non-habit forming. Ambien 10 mg at bedtime is also quite effective and well tolerated, and we have quite a bit of clinical experience with it.
