    I never have had that problem. I just close my eyes and sleep. That must really be awful, not being able to do that.

    Hmmm...

    It might be prescribed in your case. That, of course, changes matters :p

    Canabis did cross my mind, but in all fairness, I don't think it is indicated in your case.

    Black....

    That's insect repellant. Although I do believe that having no insects around does make it easier, I would say it hardly counts.

    Although literature quotes one case in which a toddler ingested a large amount of this herb, with some effects on his CNS, the psychotic behaviour, as observed in cats, cannot be repeated in humans. What is more, I haven't been able to find one article suggesting this as a sleeping agent.

    Yeah.. I know.

    Try having a glass of milk before bed. It helps a bit with getting settled down for sleep.

    I shouldn't consume marijuana/cannabis/hash/hemp/whatever y'all call it. Mainly because I'm on medication for having bipolar disorder.. Also, doctors don't just hand out prescriptions for that stuff so easily.

    Milk = FTL. Never works. Ever.

    Well, I am not getting my chemistry book out for the occasion lol ;)

    I've - swiftly - checked Nepata against one of the largest Medical article search engine, Pubmed. It did suggest it as a possible insect repellant - as well as ingredient for traditional medicine. The only effect it has been tested for was for insect repellent, which it seems to do quite well. The toxicology reports I've seen don't suggest sedative action, so that was my swift conclusion...

    And I quite agree :)

    The diagnosis of bipolarity should void any indication towards canabis products, not necessarily the accompanying medication, far as I am aware - though medication like yours should make anyone carefull about wild experimentations into any herbal remedies. I could lecture the lot of you about these effects for hours (if anyone's intereted, look into CYP450 and pharmacodynamic enhancement) - but I'm not :)
