  • Melatonin. It worked well for me.

  • If I have a lot of things racing through my head during the night I write them down and it helps me "put them away" so I can think about them the next day. I also find warm milk really does help a little. Maybe it's just the distraction of getting up and doing something I think might help. I have also read that it's very important to have a set bedtime routine and stick to it. You might want to Google your question for other ideas. I took medication for quite awhile for insomnia but have recently weaned myself off of it because it made me groggy in the AM. I wish you all the best
