Hi, I haven't posted for months but felt it time to ask for any new fresh sleep ideas!
I'm a menopausal, young 60 year old, who hasn't suffered too many of the debilitating effects apart from constant and acute Insomnia.
I was never the greatest sleeper but the past 10 years have been awful. I function, but would be so grateful to achieve 5-6 hours unbroken sleep.
I've tried all the usual supplements and natural remedies but have resorted to 5mg Amitriptyline (half a blue pill) most pm's which were prescribed for bad neck/shoulder pains. I found one pill, at least, calmed me enough to doze off and return to sleep more easily, in those dreaded early hours, but it constipated me so halved the dose, which seems ok for tummy!
I was considering some sort of oestrogen gel? I don't really need HRT for anxiety or sweats etc, but thought this may help with my sleep issues and this sometimes, foggy brain?
Any ideas gratefully accepted!
Thank you Jx
