    I had overwhelming insomnia. It turned out to be my use of Splenda. Yup Splenda.

    I like to say sucralose, not Splenda, because that is what Splenda is. And it is in a lot of stuff. The package doesn't have to say Splenda to have sucralose in it. You have to

    read labels. So, you might still be using it and don't even know it!

    Sucralose is poison. It ruined five years of my life. I had a laundry list of medical problems while taking it, including overwhelming anxiety, depression, mood swings, insomnia

    and more.

    Go ahead, google: anxiety splenda or anxiety sucralose or insomnia splenda or insomnia sucralose

    The slogan, "Made from sugar..." is very misleading. Splenda might be made from sugar, but it is far from sugar. The resulting chemical is an organochloride (chlorocarbon).

    Organochlorides are typically poisons.

    carbon monoxide - made from oxygen so its like a breath of fresh air

    Source(s): My source is me. I have personally experienced the effects of sucralose and can report first hand of its dangers. Check out what others are saying Check out organochlorides

    Maybe ssomething very nerve racking and challenging is going on in your life that xcauses you to have insomnia. I dont think your depressed though because one of the most common symptoms ofd depression is sldeeping more then the average person for a vast amount of hours every day. Even though you feel that nothing is interesting it doesnt measn you are depressed, Lifed is boring thats why people go on vacations to spice it up! Dont worry you should just get ona prescribed medication to help you sleep.

    I feel the same and I don't know the answer, my friend told me to try green tea or St Johns Wort tea to relax and sleep, this has helped a little, but perhaps you need to speak with a professional to talk through whats on your of luck to you
