How to improve the quality of sleeping.

 

KIM - May 9

A supplement with serotonin ( think that's how you spell it) can help you achieve the proper level of sleep.

hi, didnt know you could get a supplemment with seretonin? where from? whats it called?

Anti-depressants can help you sleep better. Please talk to your Dr. I take one tylenol p.m. (Equate P.M.) at night with a zanex & that seems to help. Sometimes I take a mucle relaxer(Baclofen or Flexeril) to help as well. Prozac has seretonin. St. Johns Wart is sold at discount stores to help with moods.

please be careful Joni if you are taking anti-depressants eg venlafaxine (efexor), Prozac, xanax etc., as ST.John's wort reacts badly with these meds. I know as it happened to me accidently (due to lack of knowledge) and I could barely wake up for 2 days! Good luck.

Thanks Charmaine for your input! I knew they shouldn't be mixed but forgot to mention that on my last paragraph. Always check with your Dr. or pharmacist when taking medicine, especially multiple precriptions & mixing herbal remedies or supplements.

Try practicing Qigong (chi)gong. Once I started practicing Qigong I started to sleep better. Called Sheila @ Yonemoto Physical Therapy (626)576-0591. Its made a big difference in my life. I think everybody who has been diagnosed with Fibro should try Qigong. Good Luck

I use meletonin it does seem to make me sleepy, but still have the take a sleeping med to stay asleep for more then 2-3 hrs.

meletonin is a good herbal medication for sleep, i take ambien for sleep which works wonderful. i have struggled with sleep problems for a long time. the tylenol pm will damage your liver if taken along time. also try herbal tea like chamamile

Namaste Yoga does a lot to help me relax...by product is that if I do it faithfully some of joint and muscle pain fades.
But I really notice a difference in how well I sleep when I faithfully do my routine. I also take a tylenol p.m.
I also have GERD, and when I switched to taking my medicine for that at night, instead of in the morning, I noticed a big difference in the quality of sleep that I had too!

I take 9mg of melatonin.

Try 5htp supplements.

I prop myself up with a cushion and a V shaped pillow, it helps tremendously and I take when I have these pains the pain killers tablet called Tramodol.

Wear an eye mask and ear plugs that block out all light and all sound at your head.

If you can't do that, fold a bath towel length ways.

Lay it over your eyes and forehead. Tuck it alongside your ears.

No sleep med works like this trick does.
