I started taking a magnesium supplement before bedtime recently, and so far I am still up every two hours most nights. If I can get four hours straight and am ecstatic.
However, let me get in a car and I am asleep in no time (which is why I rarely drive any more, and then for only short distances. Weird!
Ask your doctor about whether having a sleep study done would be a possibility. If you have a sleep disorder, sometimes they can treat it.
For a while I took sleeping meds, but I started sleep-eating, and falling asleep standing or sitting up. It just wasn't safe any more.
I am not sure -- does anyone know whether melatonin is available in Canada?
I would love to find a solution to this problem.
