    could someone please point me in the direction of a thread on here that lists sleep aids? Or perhaps a website link that has a good list?
    Thanks! :)

    There's an entire forum for Sleep

    http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?forums/sleep.90/

    If you want OTC just go to any supplement site and type in sleep. Also OTC antihistamines work.

    As many here will tell you, it's all trial and error. What works for one, will not work for others.

    But the best thing is to find a bunch of things to rotate so you don't build tolerance. That is the key IMO.

    25 mg diphenhydramine
    1 mg melatonin (less is more)
    4 caps of Seriphos

    Mag Glycinate plus Optizinc seem to slightly improve sleep for me, but it didn´t feel enough to justify the expense.

    I am currently experimenting with Bacopa and huge doses of Ashwagandha, need more time to draw a conclusion. I have tried like 15 different supplements for sleep and a few meds, of course most failed.

    DHD above mentioned worked great for a few days but now I need to take double and still doesnt kock me out like it used to. Besides, it makes you feel crappy so why bother?

    Look at the thread I started like last year, and also the one I have on longecity with the name "HoldingTheFaith". A lot of ideas are given, sadly I haven´t found anything that works yet. As you can see I have been and will be desperate for some good sleep. I have done threads on it in about two forums more lol

    The way I see it, sleep is a major biomarker of good body functioning, it is both a cause and a consequence of good health. So rather than looking for that supp or med that will restore sleep, working in improving overall health should overtime give a more refreshing sleep.
