How do you deal with insomnia while taking Tamiflu?

I came down with a particularly nasty strain of the flu that landed me in the hospital with my throat swollen shut. The doctor put me on Tamiflu 3 days ago.... and I haven't been able to sleep since. Every time I try to lie down, my mind suddenly starts racing and I can't sleep. I know that insomnia is one of the side effects.... is there a way to counter it? Has anyone ever taken it and dealt with the same problem?

    Insomnia (sleeplessness) is due to stress, dietary and medical

    problems. By making small lifestyle changes like having a fixed

    daily routine, relaxing and eating properly, insomnia can be

    cured. I found the information at http://tinyurl.com/jfzpz useful

    for getting sleep.
