Battle to sleep

Hi Doc, I take herbal pills to sleep, but I still wake up during the night a couple of times. The broken sleep is really affecting me badly. Please help! Thanks a lot for everything.

Hi Dorette
Look at this website for causes of insomnia: http://www.4woman.gov/faq/insomnia.htm. Try avoiding caffeine ( coffee, coke, stimulant vitamin syrups like Bioplus, drinks like Redbull) Try and get your self into a relaxing routine at night, learn to do relaxation exercises (http://www.umm.edu/sleep/relax_tech.htm)
Try and avoid prescription sleeping tablets if at all possible
