I've been dealing with some sleep troubles recently. I'm having trouble falling asleep and having some stressful dreams. I take Olly sleep gummies (1.5 mg of melatonin) that mostly work, but when I take the full dose (3 mg) I become a zombie the next morning. Does anyone have any advice about insomnia? I assume it's related to one of my conditions but I'm not sure which one.

      I dealt with a lot of insomnia a couple years back. It helped me to count backwards from 100 or to go through the alphabet and list names that start with each letter. I sleep pretty well now that my anxiety has calmed down, but I think the beta blocker I’m on makes me have weird dreams.

      I usually take melatonin gummies, drink some tea and watch asmr before bed and that really helps me
