I have not been getting much sleep lately. Even taking Tylenol PM isn't helping. I wake up every couple of hours, not for very long, but I am still not sleeping thru the night. I never had this problem to this extent before. I have had insomnia before, but this is ridiculous! I am tired all day long. I am exhausted by the end of the day but it still takes forever to get to sleep and then I wake up over and over! I want to start trying Valerian root again, I used to take it before my first surgery. I asked my doc and he doesn't want me to take it. he said because it is an herb and not regulated there is no way of knowing if it will have any bad reaction with the other meds I am on, which right now is only Keppra. I checked online for drug interactions between Keppra and Valerian root and the sites I checked showed no known interactions. If my sleeplessness continues I will try the Valerian root. A few years ago I had a bad case of insomnia. Nothing would make me sleep. I started taking Valerian root and after a couple of weeks I was sleeping fine. Hopefully I can get there again soon!
