I can't remember ever taking one. I didn't realize it was necessary?... I thought if I am tired but don't sleep well it must be just a fluke. I suppose I should be glad for my pretty easy sleep patterns.

Almost two years ago right before I found out I'm most likely allergic to then. Any of them (besides triptophan) make me trip out and really mess with my anxiety. I don't regularly have panic and anxiety attacks as they have been user control for they last 3ish years but man sleep aids really mess with my ability to control them.

I used to use Lunesta until my (usually extremely good insurance) decided to deny it. I had tried the meds they would approve prior and they didn't work, so now I just use Tylenol PM. They actually work pretty good. My doc gives my a prescription for a muscle relaxer that I use VERY sparingly if I just hurt too much to sleep. I take that with a pain reliever and I go right out

Last night, and I'm about to pop one right now. I fall asleep fine but I simply don't stay asleep. The meds work.

I have a very hard time sleeping and a very hard time staying asleep. I take a benadryl almost every night. Part of this is for allergies, but the bonus is that it helps me sleep.

No sleeping pills though.

I do have a prescription for Lunesta, but I find that the IBU PM that is out there is almost as effective. And I take just one of them vs the two that are recommended. Works great.

I take Melatonin every night and I have for about 2 years. I really envy those who can sleep without taking anything

Guess our bodies are all different. I worked graveyard (11pm to 7 am) and slept days (9 am to 5 pm) for 25 years, never took a thing. Even slept through them putting a new roof on my house.
I think the key to my success was mindset, and always sleeping the same hours.
That lack of set sleep hours really seemed to be a common issue with folks I worked with on graveyard who had issues with sleep. One guy would go to bed at 730 am on day, and 5 pm the next because he was working his sleep around things he wanted to do, instead of working the things he wanted to do around his sleep.
I know my FIL, who was career air force said he felt conditoning was a part of it. He could be asleep 30 seconds after going to bed no matter what time of day or night it was, because if you were caught awake in the barracks, you got pulled out of your bunk and put to work since "you weren't asleep".

It's difficult to condition for midnights when they are 12 hour shifts, and only 3 days a week. Not to mention, I have young children and will not live that schedule when I'm not working. It deprives them of their mom, which is a much bigger deal than me being sleep deprived. I also think a huge part of it is that I'm naturally a morning person...I always got up at 6am and went to bed at 10:30. I slept great and woke rested on that schedule. Luckily, I'm back on that schedule, and will be until I decide to make a job change...then I'll probably have to go back to nights again and work my way back to day shift. Now my DH is a different story. He should be a night shifter since he loves to stay up most of the night and sleep in.

January. DH had major surgery in December and then 10 days later DS17 was in a horrible car accident. Once I got them home and back up and moving, the stress and anxiety hit me like crazy and I didn't sleep more than an hour or two at a time. When it got to the point that my broken DS looked better than I did our doctor suggested I take something for awhile before I got sick and couldn't take care of anyone anymore.

I took it for a couple of weeks and then slowly weaned myself off it.
