    I use Melatonin which you can get over the counter. I bought the 5MG gummy and found them to be too strong so I cut them in half and take one 1/2 before bed.

    Thank you gang. I will try.  After 3 years I am used*!* to imbalance and dizzy, but a whole night with no sleep just makes crazy brain much worse next day.

    I took 1/4 of a gravol about 30 mins before I went to bed when I first got dizzy.

    It made me pass out even when I was spinning.

      Not great, but do not ever, ever go to dizzy Whole Foods, so big so bright so many isles and so much choice, I did pick up some melatonin. I had to rest since then.  I am only sleepless at night occasionally. 

      there was a useful list of all sleep aids and types in book 'Back in Control' by David Hanscom MD, I am only reading that for general info and other friends.  Sorry you were not great, a throw away Saturday.
