      I’ve been waking too early for about three years. Tried many herbal remedies. Now on trazodone, and melatonin time release. About a week ago I started sleeping the full night!, which was great. But what was different?? Now, for the last two days, back to waking at 5am or 4am. Why? Here are notes I took after waking too early …
      Food/diet? Sense of safety? Reassuring self talk? Mindful meditation before bead? Acidic stomach? Exercise before bed? Trauma CPTSD? Deep breathing before bed?

        Sounds like you have your detective hat on there, OkieMan — you are clearly a strong advocate for yourself and a problem solver!

        Five years ago, did sleep require exploration, effort, detective work, and medication? If not, why is it needed now — and how are those things helping you?
