Customer Question

I am usually so frustrated, feeling overwhelmed, anxious, even hostile and angry and say the wrong things. I was really agitated today, but couldn't say the things I wanted to say. I wanted my doctor to fill several scripts and in light of the M Jacskson stuff, I was worried. I got the prescriptons, still can't sleep. What can I do. I have the whole rainbow of sleep meds available to me here.

Good Morning,

Lack of sleep can affect one's mood causing agitation in addition to feeling tired and drained physically and mentally.

If you are not able to be honest with your prescribing physician, you may miss out on proper treatment and correct diagnosis.

There are natural alternatives to sleep such as Melatonin, GABA, 5-HTP and perhaps you can inquire from your doctor if they think that these may be helpful to you. These are non prescription over the counter supplements.

It would also be helpful to seek therapy not just medication management if you have not done so already.

Your words were nice, but I don't think my question be answered like this. I have to go to someone and talk to him/her in person.
