Okay, I have had chronic insomnia since I was a child. I remember praying when I was little that I could get some sleep. I would often have night-terrors when I finally did get some sleep. Then, my daughter has the same chronic insomnia. Unfortunately, it may be that you will have to have some medication to get sleep. HOWEVER!--There are ways to make it so that you can take a much smaller dosage of meds, and if you have the right body chemistry combined with mind control (You in control of your own mind)...maybe even not have to take meds anymore. Obviously, Melatonin (that you can buy at your grocery store)...but usually it takes a far larger dose than recommended. Also, if you have any issues in your brain you haven't tackled and subdued...the larger doses of Melatonin can make your dreams nightmares, just so you are aware...Good news is...you can STOP that by tackling those issues. Some people have a reaction to sleep-walk or sleep-eat etc when taking ambien...so you can actually lessen this possibility by taking a smaller amount of ambian with a small amount of seroquil added (discuss with your doctor of course). Also, certain anti-anxiety and anti-deprresant meds at a low dosage can do the same. NOW on to mind control...YOU IN CONTROL. Depending on how bad your insomnia is, you can at least lower the amount of meds even if it is chronic. There are some realities to face. I highly suggest the following, all Free, [and concentrate on the inner eye-lids with your eyes relaxed while also concentrating on your breathing.] 1/ Santisi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dP1KkpQg1Rk

--Also to consider & of importance: Other things are the food and the water you drink...pesticides and fluoride cause serious problems...including depression and insomnia. The National Center for Disease published its findings that fluoride causes fluorosis of the teeth and over time fluorosis of the skeletal bones...chipping, easy breakage... but that it also causes calcium deposits on the pineal gland, and your pineal gland regulates melatonin for sleep and both natural DMT and Serotonin needed to feel happy. So if you can not get really clean water or organic food (which most of us in the USA can not)...then here are things you can buy at a store such as wal-mart that will help you... Melatonin, Vitamin-C at least 3-thousand mgs per dosage, also GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) which naturally relieves stress and anxiety, of which the only inexpensive bulk amount I've personally found to get from vitacost.com
Seriously, please let me know if you find someplace cheaper...I'd like to know. So, depending on how chronic it is...you can still use these strategies to at least lower your medication dosage... and perhaps even stop having to take it all together. I send you love & luck & sweet dreams. Blessings To You, ~Suzanna. (This can really work.)
