Sleeping Aids

I took amitriptyline for facial nerve pain. I was on 50mg at one point but have weaned myself off it and pain seems to have mostly resolved itself ( except if I am stressed). It always helped me get to sleep quickly. I wondered at the time if it affected my AHI when I came off it as it was about the same time my AHI started going haywire but this group has shown me there was no link.

I’m taking trazodone for similar reasons, it’s also an antidepressant

It's used for allsorts, in my case it was nerve pain.

RE: Sleeping Aids
As I mentioned earlier, I've been taking OTC stuff that I buy @ Costco. Have been for years. 

It's Doxylamine Succinate, 25 mg. tablets. I'm not a pharmacist, so I'm not sure if it's good, bad, or indifferent.

I second the Trazodone. It worked for me when nothing else would.
