Are you lying awake at night, tossing and turning, your mind swirling with distressing thoughts? Do you go to sleep at night, only to wake up at 3 am, unable to fall back to sleep? Did your doctor prescribe an anti-anxiety medication like a Benzodiazepine, or a sleep medication, either prescription or OTC, and you find it becoming less effective and needing to take more? Do you dread going to bed at night, expecting another restless night? You may be suffering from chronic insomnia.
