    How do I fix my sleeping pattern? I can't seem to sleep early, I've been to the doctors many times do to sleep problems and I can't seem to get a normal routine, it's like my brain won't allow it and I'm tired of being tired, no matter how much I sleep or don't sleep I am tired, without seeing a doctor is there something I can take like pills or vitamins? Doctors won't give me anything and they're useless.

    I got meletonin from the states and that helped me but they don’t sell it here normally
    I try taking any sleep aid meds as they usually work or stuff that makes you drowsy

    I just need something that's either going to stop me from being tired or sends me to sleep.

    Take up fitness. Long distance running I'd suggest. It really balances you up physically (and mentally I guess). Helps with stress.

    I pretty much am 1 of those people, forever tired. It f**ks you up a lot like I've made so many mistakes, being overly tired is no different to being drunk, I've been confused and so sleep deprived I end up talking a load of random sh*t.

    First you need a lifestyle overhaul.

    Get yourself to the GP and ask to be tested for deficiencies in Vitamin D3, Iron and B12.

    All of these will cause you to feel tired and will undermine your health overall.


    Second to sleep better do the following:

    Have a cut off point each night from your IPAD, phone, TV

    These emit a type of blue light that stimulates the brain and keeps it awake.

    Instead have a wind down routine and start with making your surroundings dark as possible.
    This makes the brain wind down for sleep and light wakes you up.

    Take a warm bath or shower and play some relaxing music/ listen to the radio.

    Give yourself at least 1 hour to wind down before sleep.
    Keep a regular routine like this and you will then notice that there is a natural point at which you start to feel tired
    with your eyes literally closing and you need to go to sleep at this point immediately.

    Constantly overriding the need to sleep, say by going online, ruins your natural sleep pattern.

    Look at your diet and eat regular healthy meals.

    Take a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement as magnesium in particular helps you to relax.

    Take regular exercise even if just walking for 1/2 hour 4 times a week.

    You could also go back to your GP and explain your need to improve your sleep problem.
    Ask for a 5 day supply of sleeping tablets to break the pattern and end your exhaustion.

    Explain what else you are trying to do help matters so that they are more helpful
    Target woman GPS or Practice Nurses as they will be naturally more sympathetic to you.

    Also visit Holland and Barrett for advice on natural sleep aids.

    If this does not work visit your GP and ask to be referred to a sleep clinic for further investigation.

    Also try " I can make you sleep" by Paul McKenna.
