    Are there any good sleep medications?

    Is there a medication out there that puts you to sleep fast and doesn't leave you feeling groggy in the morning?

    Yes, I would always suggest to first try eating healthy food, having a peaceful mind, do a lot of exercise, love someone and exchange physical attention.

    Melatonin 5-10mg at bedtime. Chewable is best, works faster. Reduce the dose, if grogginess occurs. The best I've used is Tryptophan 500mg about 20min. before bedtime. The only sustance that produces serotonin. Our bodies produce melatonin from serotonin. Trytophan is present in turkey, and milk. That is why warm milk helps for insomnia. A very good brand is: http://www.amazon.com/source-naturals-l … psules/dp/
    explanation about trytophan and melatonin can be found in my hub http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/menap … e-meltdown

    If natural remedies have failed to work (i.e. melatonin, exercise, etc.), I take Trazadone (prescribed). It's an older anti-depressant (I have mental health problems), but it is prescribed now-a-days as a sleep aide. It works well for me, and it's often used as a PRN (prescribed as needed) after a week or two of taking it, and it's non-habit forming.

    I've also heard good things about Ambien, but I have never been on it.

    I would suggest taking a warm bath before going to bed, taking some chamomile tea or listening to soothing low music and prayer. I have tried each of them and they work.

    Best wishes.
