New to the group here. I’ve had insomnia/anxiety for about 22 years, have taken a variety of meds for almost that whole time. It seems to be getting worse, I’m taking lots of things to sleep, and get worried about that. Any tips appreciated!! Thanks!October 8, 2019 at 4:41 am #32788

Hello Tracy and welcome to the forum! Sorry to hear about your 22-year history with insomnia and anxiety. As you have experienced for yourself, medication isn’t a long-term solution for insomnia!
Have you tried implementing cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) techniques?
You might find it helpful (and reassuring) to listen to Episode 2 of the Insomnia Coach Podcast — in that episode, I talk to Ann who had insomnia for over 30 years and managed to get her sleep back on track using CBT-I techniques.
