My sleep started to give me issues about 10 yrs ago and I'll be 79 soon.

What I take is as follows:

1/2mg to 1mg Melatonin
About 1.5 hrs before going to bed.

500mg Inositol or
250mg of Inositol/Choline combo

500mg Gaba

1 tablet Calms Forte

When I wake at 2-3AM and can't get
back to sleep, I take a Calms and/or Inositol

One can adjust the above accordingly, but this has worked pretty good for me for some yrs now.

Whatever works, I say. I take 500mg Niacinamide about 3 times per day for arthritis. THINK it helps. I just went from 1/2mg Melatonin to 1mg as my sleep has gotten so messed up since hospital/rehabs for a staph infection in knee which kept me down for 4.5 months ... it was a nightmare and believe the attending doctors were negligent in finding the real culprit for the falls I had.

3 drops of 3% CBD oil, and sleep problems are a thing of the past.

To be more specific, I sleep deeply every night and tolerance to this benefit doesn't develop. However, I don't awaken feeling really rested any more often than before.

Kinda hard to explain.

I'm decades older than you and never had issues with sleep until menopause hit me and probably the Fibro shock and aging. I wake up pretty refreshed for being as old as I am and a body full of OA.

Well, if Osteoarthritis is a problem for you, then definitely have a look at Cannabidiol. It can help.

As to you being decades older than me, well, that's not me in the avatar.

You'll have fun with this, click on the camera, then copy the location or click and drag an image into the search box. You'll see where an image most probably came from.

I clicked on THIS and no camera. I've tried CBD oil but not the drops for ingestion. I'll save the material you sent me. I deal with bodywide OA and avoid surgery as much as possible...a hip replacement in 2010 caused more OA and side effects I'm living with.

Well, the most I know about Japan is sushi, electronics and most get enough iodine in their bodies for health issues and iodine deficiency. And heavy smokers and drinkers too. Thanks.

For me, Melatonin doesnt seem to work properly, unfortunately. Thats why im aways searching for alternatives. The next one im eager to try is the Oleamide from here, as my sister made some good experiences with it. Any of you of tried it?

I don't know Oleamide but thanks for the info.

My adjuncts with Melatonin are Inositol, Gaba, Lemon Balm, Typtophan and Calms Forte'....some nights I sleep good and some nights can be tough. Last night was a tough one as my mind was thinking too much about the fires going on here. Plus OA bodypain wakes me.

Right now I'm taking 1.5mg Melatonin but I've heard some take up to 10mg nightly.,..sure sounds like too much but who knows what others bodies need and work with.

Oleamide is one of my favorites. It replicates physiological sleep and increases slow wave sleep. It's non-addicting. It isn't a sleeping pill but it helps keep me asleep without any morning grogginess. I use it as a part of this sleep protocol.

Since I've added 500mg L Tryptophan and 50mg B6 (p5p) at about 9:30ish, I no longer lay awake after bathroom trips...get right back to sleep. This has been since about 2 months now. I lay my head down on pillow at 10:30ish and I'm gone until first bathroom trip but at least I can stretch out my stiff knees. And back...so all is not lost.

I know this is old, but if you see this could you tell me.... does Oleamide still work for you? I ordered some based on this thread, and I am having trouble taking it. I just emailed them to ask how to take it, though they will get a good laugh out of such a seemingly dumb question. It sticks to the scoop, and I have to hit it really hard to get it out, then it won't mix in water at all, so I ended up inhaling the power into my lung and coughing for half an hour. Next, I tried holding my breath and licking it off my palm, lol. How the heck do you take it? How much do you need? I took 2 doses of 50 mgs. each so far with no effects. I have alpha-delta sleep disorder, hypopnea, and severe post-benzo withdrawal insomnia. Thank you!
