Have you tried valerian root? It's natural and pretty inexpensive at the drugstore. I've tried all kinds of sleeping pills, prescription and OTC and nothing has yet worked as well as valerian root. I actually have a prescription for Ativan for my anxiety and it does make me tired when I take it but it's never helped me sleep throughout the night, if anything it's really only helped me fall asleep quicker but it definitely doesn't last very long.

Hi again JOSIEG74 - that's great you have talked to your dr about the med and any side-effects you are dealing with. That would be wonderful if you could get some good sleep and not have to take anything, but I know it can be a process etc.. All the best to you.

I have mentioned it to the doctor, but he thinks the sleep is more important than the side effects, and thinks I might be someone who doesn't become addicted, because most people do quickly.

Hope is never lost, it is only misplaced.

Hi and emoticon to the team. Have you talked to your dr about the night terrors and any other side effects you're having?

My doctor gave me Ativan because I wasn't sleeping very well at night, I would wake constantly from night terrors. Unfortunately it is addictive, so I don't want to use it all the time. But nights I don't use it I am up til 3 or 4 in the morning, sometimes later, and get up at 6 with the youngest. I need an all-natural sleep aid that won't affect me during the day. I miss sleep.
