Otc Sleep Aid

A bit of history....prediagnosis I slept fine, the first couple of months gluten-free I slept fine, and now suddenly it's an issue. I've had other phases in the past, but I don't believe it's related to gluten....I know it will pass, but meanwhile I need some sleep....well, more than I've been getting!

interestingly the usual form of folic acid in supplements is not a natural form and doesn't metabolise easily
i cut the tablet down so take between a half to a quarter in the morning and don't take it all the time, just when i feel a bit wound up
i think it reduces homocysteine
too much metafolin increases viral susceptibility so there's a balance .................

folapro/metafolin improves sleep and b-12 makes for mmore broken sleep in my observation, but we need the other benefical effects of b-12 like immune stimulation
generally b-12 tablets need cutting down, way too big for a single dose

Have you tried cutting out caffeine and/or sugars near bed-time? For me, if I have anything with caffeine in it (even a green tea) after about 2P I'm too awake near bedtime to get to sleep easily.
Outside of drugs, behavioral modifications may help in order to get your body in the mood for sleep. For example, avoiding TV/computer screens an hour before bed, reading in bed for awhile, or taking a warm shower before bed helps. While I haven't tried it, Valerian tea has been very useful for some people for insomnia and has some scientific backing.
I hope you find something that works.
