Womens health is much more at risk from sleep deprivation than mens. Women in the study group who slept less than or equal to 5 hr a night were twice as likely to suffer from hypertension than women who slept for the more recommended 7 hr or more a night.

I don't know about the rest of you ladies, but suffer from acute sleep disorder. My DH can lay down and is snoring in five minutes. I sure do envy him. Right now I take Ambiem 10MG. Do any of you have some suggestions?

Linda, do you stretch/meditate or have a cup of sleepytime-type tea before climbing into your bed?

I hope you don't have a TV or a compute rin your bedroom.

I wouldn't take any prescription drugs; you can use herbs to help you sleep and yoga/meditation to get all your "glands" secreting all the right substances working properly.

Linda, In addition to Blue's suggestions, I read a blog (10 Tips to Get Better Sleep) that has more tips on this problem, and hope that it helps:
