Hi - I do know that I am not the only one here with this problem. Is this really an ALS problem and if so, do you know why? I don't want to take sleeping pills, any other suggestions?..................ruby from vanouver (surrey)

Hi Ruby. I take ativan. It is an anti-anxiety drug. It just takes the edge off and helps with my sleeping but you don't get that sleeping pill morning feeling. I started with 1mg but use 2 mg now. It is potentially addictive but so is a lot of other stuff like wine ,ice cream and chocolate and they haven't killed me yet so what the heck.

Hi Ruby -

I've been taking 1mg of Xanax before bed and it helps keep me down for 6-7 hours. No 'hangover" in the morning. For me a good night's sleep is a top priority as it makes all the difference to my overall attitude and energy level for handling the demands of the day.
