    Try the Homeopathic remedy ARSENICUM ALBUM in 200 potency half an hour before going to bed on an empty stomach. No side effects or complications.

    1) listen to some peaceful, calming music

    2) eat a heavy carb--potato, bread, pasta--but not too much as that would have the reverse effect.

    3) have a glass of wine

    4) have a glass of milk

    5) eat some poultry--again, not too much

    6) get a long, slow massage

    7) practice deep slow breathing as you lay there.

    8) have some nice, slow leisurely sex

    9) make sure youre sleeping on agood matress and pillow.

    10) try to clear your mind of yesterdays, todays, and tomorrows worries by focusing on pleasant things in your life.

    11) make sure there air in your room is not too hot--an open window is good

    12) try too have your room as dark and quiet as is possible.

    13) some people like to have music quietly playing, or a "white-noise" machine playing.

    14) go for a leisurely stroll in the fresh air before you go to bed.

    15) avoid disturbing TV shows, books, and conversations too close to your bedtime.

    16) teach yourself body relaxation techniques (anybody can do it)

    17) do some slow stretching--but avoid vigorous exercise before bed.

    18) have a warm ,but not hot, soak in the tub with a calming bath oil, such as lavender.

    19) have a cup of chamomile or valerian tea.

    20) fall asleep beside someone you love.

    You could try some relaxation things such as meditation or music, reading a book, watching TV....sometimes it is really hard to shut the mind down after being restless and having a lot going on in your life.....chatting with a friend. I guess it depends on what's going on in your life right now. Hope you get some sleep.

    I am having the same problems as you. The only thing that I have found that helps (other than sleeping meds) is a glass or two of wine. I toss and turn and keep my boyfriend up at night unless I take a warm bath and have a glass or two of red wine.

    Maybe that will help!

    If I can't sleep I'll try and eat something. My next options is to watch some TV or pop in a movie. Sometimes I'll go back on the computer. Right now it's 1:50am here and I'm supposed to be up at 5am. I can't sleep right now.

    I use melatonin. You can get it over the counter and I would suggest taking about 3mg. It doesn't give you a hangover and it's a natural hormone that your body already produces. If for some reason you don't produce enough for sleep then you can take extra with the pills.

    Smoke a bowl, or have an alcoholic drink. Sex also helps (honestly)

    I get that way myself at times...I do any over the counter PM medicine.
