I have had a lot of trouble sleeping lately and wondered if anyone has tried any kind of natural sleeping aid like those herbal teas or melatonin? Can you tell me if they work?

The sleepytime tea didn't help as I had to keep getting up to go to the bathroom so it sort of defeated the purpose of taking it. I am taking melatonin but I started it the same time I started HRT so I don't know which one is helping me the most.

I suggest you try one of the teas or melatonin for a week and see if it works. Also, remember to limit your caffeine to early in the day and don't check your email or get on the internet an hour before bedtime because they say making sure you are unplugged from everything helps.
