    I have chronic insomina and nothing seems to work. This my 4th nite of not having any sleep. I'm bi-polar and apparently thats why I have insomina. Please tell me there is a very strong drug out there that will knock me out. I've spent so much money over the last 5 yrs. I'll try a med and it may work for a few weeks then it stops working. Someone out there please help me.

    I read you post and just wanted to say I'm so sorry for your problems. I don't have an answer, I am new here because I was just diagnosed with narcolepsy (the opposite problem!) It's hard for me to stay awake. My body wants to sleep 24 hours a day.

    One suggestion though, although I'm sure you've tried all kinds of natural supplements, is Ionix Supreme by Isagenix. I sell these products and many people say the Ionix Supreme helps with sleep - shutting down the brain. It contains a special class of herbs called adaptogens, which adapt to what each individual needs in terms of where the body is stressed, including emotional stress.

    What have you all tried? A doc who knows what he's doing can give you a "cocktail" of drugs that when taking together will help you sleep.
