Sleeping patterns? - October 15th 2011, 03:29 PM

It could be just exams coming up but i always tell myself to sleep early and i never end up going to a deep sleep until very early in the morning. no one tends to understand as much to what i'm going through and yeah i think i'm just ending up being more depressed now. ugh i'm sorry i think it's anxiety too but sorry for the rant...

I have sleep problems too (which I think are depression related).
Anyways, my best advise it to talk to your doctor. I did and it helped me. I was getting to sleep at anywhere from 3 AM to 5 AM. Basically, she had me shift my bedtime back a half hour every few days, and I took melatonin (precursor to the sleep hormone) to help me actually fall asleep. Now, my sleep pattern is (usually) a lot more normal, although it does take me awhile to fall asleep. Anyways, talk to your doctor, and good luck!

Agree with Elsa.

Also, you can get some meds to help you fall asleep (some of these can be very very very cheap depending on which pharmacy you go to). Then once you are sleeping regularly with them, the doctor will slowly wean you off them.
