Sleep Problems
Hello I am new here . Hi everyone.  My question is what can I do about sleep problems?   I never sleep through the night.  I get up several times during the night and I have a hard time relaxing even when I can't keep my eyes open.  Just when I laydown to go to sleep its like a light switch comes on and I am wide awake again.  It really drags me down during the day.    I do walk everyday and I take melatonin at night but even though it makes me really sleepy I never stay asleep.   Help needs some zzzzzzzzzzz.  I think we all know with Bipolar sleep is a must.  

PS   This has been going on for years!!!  
Thanks

Rhonda

If you have disrupted sleep you might want to undergo a sleep test. If its an issue with sleep aides Rozerem is an FDA approved medication that works like melatonin to adjust the sleep cycle and is safe and non addictive and is actually more effective than melatonin
