      Hello Rena, welcome to the forum. Have you tried melatonin? it's not addictive, so you can take it everyday if you like. I don't use it myself, but some users of this forum do.

      Hi rena when i first got T in my rt ear i was put on sleeping pills cause i could not sleep , but after 1 week i stoped due to the side affects it could cause. i had T for 3 months now and i sleep with out sleeping pills ,but there are those nights when my brain is so active i take melatonin and it helps me alot .... i take 5 mg but i don't use it every night maybe once or twice a week.. you should give it a try......
