I've been suffering from insomnia for nearly a year now. All the doctors I've seen consider it to be psychological, and have seen several psychologists. The one that I'm currently seeing is not above enlisting the help of a sleep aid.
I've done all the ZMA, melatonin, valerian, etc. to try to treat it myself, and they never seem to work too long. I just wanted to get opnions on sleep aids and possible side effects. Is the sleep quiality worsened in relation to REM? Any knowledge would be appreciated.
