Okay... Now I use lemon balm (melissa officinalis) knocks me out... I can have a whole tea ball full of the stuff and sleep 10 hours. Plus it's a minor anti-depressant. PLUS, you can adapt it, for instance, I am a light weight, for a good night's sleep I only need a teaspoon full in a tea ball for tea, but if you need more, you can up the dose, whereas with a pill you can't. Easy to find and cheap, you can even grow your own, but it will take over.

Try Melatonin. You will find it in the vitamin section.
It's all natural. I heard of this in my vitamin and mineral book. It works great. I started using it because I have a 3 year old and I havnt slept through the night in such a long time. This works great. I take it every other night and I sleep so good. And you do not feel tired in the morning either when you awaken'

I tried everything for making me sleep. Melatonin didn't do a thing, in fact I stayed awake even more. I tried sleeping pills from the doctor, they didn't even work. Lately I have been taking Siberian Gingseng and drinking Sleepy Time tea before I got to bed. This seems to work. I take 2 Siberian Gingsneg, two in the morning, and two at night. It says right on it that it can be helpful for insomnia.
