    Talk to your doctor about something to help with your insomnia in the short-term.  Otherwise, don't go to bed until two hours after you have eaten and have a warm drink beforehand. Chamomile Tea should help and I would forget about the rest!

    I know this post is old - but did you have sucess with your Mirt withdrawal insomnia?

    I've been taking it for 3 weeks only, and trying to stop, but I'm finding the insomnia very difficult to deal with.
