First of all, my brain goes nuts when I try to go to sleep--I start thinking all sorts of unexplainable, half-dream thoughts that in retrospect make no sense (i.e. "I have to sleep in this position, otherwise the music notes will be pushed off the edge of my bed and I'll have to clean them up in the morning.") I dream incredibly vividly (meaning I remember them clearer, and they're generally more fantastic.) Most of all, I am entirely incapable of waking up in the morning; I am not one to sleep in at all, but after taking Tylenol PM, I have slept in as late as 1:00 in the afternoon.
My mother has frequently recommended that I take only one dose of Tylenol PM, but usually when I take it, it is for to take care of symptoms I have, which means I want the full effect. So last night, when my only symptom was frequent insomnia, I only took one. Turns out the effect is no different!
So my question for you guys is: is there ANYTHING else I can take that will knock me out without destroying my sleep schedule?
