Default Re: 3am club

I don't like the idea of being dependent on any drug, so I'm leery about taking those I hear can cause dependency, but I guess maybe I haven't come across the right one yet, because I haven't had that issue. I've taken Tramadol in the past, and it did help a little with sleep. Amitriptyline helped somewhat, as well. I believe I was put on that initially for Interstitial Cystitis or Migraine prevention, but noticed the sedating effect, so stayed on it for a while. I have also taken Melatonin in the past, and that has helped somewhat, as well. I've never found one thing that worked wel forever, and so have switched around a little. Nowadays, I end up reading or watching a little TV, and often that will relax me enough to go back to sleep, and of course I use deep breathing.
