Any advice of non-addictive pills, natural herbs or anything that can help me get some good sleep would be appreciated...

P.S. I have tried that tea that is supposed to get u sleeping and a non-addictive medication called Sleep-MD with no good results
- My first advise is taking a hot shower before you go to sleep ... but it seems it's not working with some
- If you take naps during the day avoid them ...
- coffee, tea, nescafe never help
- concerning medications ... most makes dependence ... personally i prefer the usage of anti-histamine groups because they don't make dependence and they have few side effects (eg Panadol night, atarax (10 or 25 mg), etc ...)

Thank You ...
