I am in big trouble right now and need advice. For the last 45 days I cant sleep properly. Sometimes I feel so sleep that I could sleep on desk while I am working in the office. This is not good for me nor for my boss (of course) but I can’t help my self. This is affecting my health and work also. When I go to bed I don’t feel sleepy. In the last when I sleep I get bad dreams. And in the morning I feel that I did not sleep in the night, which makes me drowsier. I need a properly dream free sleep. I m even planning to take sleeping pills. Please help me

  • Well I feel that you are stressed out. For how long you work… I mean you timing of your job. May be if you are working more you are facing this problem. Don’t go for pills. Have you heard about DermaSleep patch? Try for once caz its drug free. You may get further information at their webstie. I think it’s by same name dermasleep. If you are not aware of using the patches you can discuss with your doctor. But remember that you should be above 21 to use this patch.

  • Madelyn, the way you describe your sleep problems, they came on suddenly, and you've never had them before? That almost surely suggests either stress or something in your environment. What changed in your life around the time that your sleep problems started? Excess light or noise in your bedroom, change in air quality, change in diet or medication, other health problems, work or personal stresses?

  • Oh of heavens sake, just go to your doc and get a two week prescription of Halcion or Ambien. You need to get some quality sleep!. THEN start to work on the reasons for your sleepiness. Haven't you seen the commercial about Ambien with Abraham Lincoln and the *****r? (If you live in America). Your dreams miss you. Tell your boss you're having insomnia and are working with a doctor to help figure out what is wrong. S/he will appreciate your candor.
