Oh man this is just plain fucked up. For the last two weeks I have not been able to sleep for shit, about three hours a night if I am lucky. To top it off I am having issues with the asthma and when I lay down it gets hard to breath. So I guess I will sit here for some time and increase the post count. Any suggestions?? I went through this about 6 years ago and it lasted about three months. I dont want to have to go another three months before I can sleep again.

Are u taking breathing treatments for the asthma? The reason I ask is that bronchodialators such as albuterol accelerate the the heart like a stimulant and could be keeping you awake like coffee.

Try Melatonin, works well for me when I can't sleep. My second choice would be Sominex or other sleeping pill. Just don't take them for an extended time.

I like unisom myself, it works well, esp the max strength (but it'll leave you with a hangover if you're not careful), if this doesn't go away, see your doctor, ask them about Ambien, I'm om Ambien and it works very well and is actually safer than OTC sleeping pills. Good luck, and I understand exactly how this stuff goes.

No. I should go to the doc, but I think they are evil so I just deal with it. It's just bad enough to be really annoying. If it gets worse I will head into the doc.

Try counting sheep. okay that was suppose to be funny but in hindsight its more annoying than anything.
