Sleep Meds

Just wondering about sleep meds.

I usually manage to get in to bed by 11.30pm each night and I set my alarm for 2.30am to do a position check/change for my husband.

Because this 3 hour period is my only chance of continuous sleep during the night, I take Zopiclone to zonk me out quickly. Trouble is the Zopiclone thinks I should sleep longer!!! and I am bit of a zombie at 2.30am.

Though I am exhausted at bedtime, my brain works overtime and without the tablet I lay awake for ages which cuts into my sleep opportunity. I've tried half a tablet but then it doesnt work at all.

Anyone got any "get to sleep quick" tips.

Listening to politicians does it for me.

dvd, low volume, tv switches off once it's finished, probably works for me because I'm not a tv/dvd fan.
