Hey honey, I have a hard time falling asleep and a hard time staying asleep as well. I take Lunesta which puts me to sleep pretty fast but doesnt keep me asleep. Ive noticed if I take Lorazepam (for anxiety) that not only relaxes me and puts me to sleep, but it keeps me asleep. Perhaps you can try that. Good luck. muahs
When all else fails, go Bipolar all over their azzes!!

Lorazapam is a benzo in the same family as Valium. I have taken both and have found that Valium relaxed me more at your same dosage . The trade nam is Ativan which really didnt work for me. Hope that helps.
