Hi Sammy, you can get Kirkman's magnesium glycinate in powder or pill form from http://www.biomedcafe.com.au/
This article by Cort (again!) is a good one about sleep drugs various leading doctor's advise. Often a combination of an initiator and a 'stay a-sleeper'.
sorry buddy still need to get back to you via PM. Midnight to 10am is excellent, little enviouse lol
and same with me drugs will only give me about 6hours as well. Imovame isnt a benzo(i may be wrong though) so you may add one if you like. Adaption or tolerance is difficult to deal with, but am glad to hear the natural additions have helped, well at least last night. It seams you hit it from a few angles... More or less like jacob Teitelbaum recomends.
My current combination leaves me nauseated in the morning and not very deep sleep or any real useful length to it. And same have tryed going all natural and the same happened to me. Will post this before my computer crashes, again.... Lol? is difficult to deal with, but am glad to hear the natural additions have helped, well at least last night.

Imovane hits the same receptors as benzo's and i think that there is a cross tolerence between benzo's and imovane ie if u are getting tolerence problems with benzo's it will increase tolerence to imovane to a certain degree, so i just put it in the same class as benzo's. My midnight to 10am sleep didnt happen the next night bugger, i have had a couple of restless nights the last 2 nights but have had some sleep but sleep is very inconsistent with me????? i think the natural stuff is helping but still need meds and of course need to swap and alternate between the natural stuff like i do meds or they stop working too. Im just always chasing my tail when it comes to sleep, i hate it, lol.
I alternate between Restoril and Lunesta. On top of this I take Melatonin time release. I still wake up a few times, but this is much better than before.
I alternate between Lunesta and Ambien. Last night was just one of those nights, I knew I had to get up early today and Lunesta at 3mg is just useless. Wound up taking 100mg of trazadrunk at 5 and sleeping 3 hours. I think Ambien works better, I also take melatonin, theanine and a few other natural remedies. It seems like I like to humor myself that the natural remedies actually do anything, I keep hoping to stumble on to that magic formula that will allow me to discontinue to z drugs, so far it has not happened. The best drug for me is xyrem, if it didnt have so much salt added to it, I would take it again.
