Medical MJ with low THC/high CBD&CBN,
sometimes auto-suggestion also works (for me) to get better sleep (ok, thats not a "supplemente"),

Another update on my testing of Evening Primrose Oil: the Walmart brand does work. What was causing my insomnia was BBQ sauce (just a splurt on dinner). When I quit that, the oil worked again. I'll have to experiment more to figure out whether it's the sugar in the BBQ sauce or something else.

Be warned: even small amounts of something you eat even in small amounts might cause insomnia. For me, so does driving, socializing, and certain types of cerebral activities after 2 PM. Getting good sleep sure is tricky. :cautious:

I am helped by Gabapentin - Pregabalin, but notice that it is a secondary effect: I have to take it for neuropathic and inflammatory reasons. Some people will even experience eccessive sleep as a side effect of this type of drugs, though rarely.
