Any advice is welcome re sleep

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi can anyone help? I am really struggling with flashbacks but especially nightmares and don't sleep very well at night at all. Can anyone suggest any over the counter medication that deal with sleeplessness. I don't want antidepressants, they're chemical and mess with your mind. I definitely have ptsd not depression like my doctor insists? Please help, only serious answers please, I'm struggling. Sorry happier new year we hope.

    No Tizanidine is actually a muscle relaxer.  Thats what my doctor told me.

    Good luck.  My doctor gave them to me pretty easily, they are not narcotic. I never heard of it before it was prescribed.  The brand name is Zanaflex.
