I have been having severs insomnia & hot flashes The only way I sleep is if I take valium. I had a weird reaction to ambiem so I cant take that. I am going to try Sleep M.D. tonight recomended by the herbal store.I have been using black cohosh for night sweats which helped but is not as effective anymore. Tonight I will try 3 pills.I should also mention I am on nuvaring birth control& my gyn swears it cant be signs of menopause but my body is telling me differently.Last year I trying to tough it out & I had 8 days of 4 hrs or less sleep a night & even with that I woke up several times.I cant function with that little sleep so I am hoping to find a way to sleep without taking meds.Laura
