Hi ladies, I have suffered with terrible insomnia every since going through menopause, which has been about 4 years now. I can go to sleep with no problem, but I wake up within about two hours, and then about every 45 minutes the rest of the night. I've tried Ambien and other prescription meds, which help me sleep, but leave me feeling groggy and kind of out of it the next day. Well, I finally found some natural stuff that is really helping me and, assuming I'm not the only one with sleep issues, wanted to share. I've been taking two Alteril about an hour before bed, and it's really helped. Then when I wake up in the night I take another natural pill called MidNite. It's one of those melt in your mouth things (tastes like orange, but not strong), and it helps me drift back off to sleep. I don't have any side effects from them at all. It has made an amazing difference for me. I now get about 3-4 hours of good sleep before waking up, and another couple at least after taking the MidNite. I actually slept until 9:00 this morning, which is unheard of for me. It was quite wonderful for a Saturday morning .
