    welcome!

    You say you are taking B6 and magnesium for sleep. Maybe you could consider joining the many people here who use ZMA. It's a special blend of mag, B6 and zinc. It has helped many many of us to sleep better. I find it doesn't particularly help getting off to sleep ~things like valerian may help there~ but it helps to keep me asleep longer. I still often wake up in the night, but sleep longer periods in between.

    Welcome. I think you will fnd many good people here, and learn a lot. I know I have.
    I use Sleepytime Tea Extra (with valerian) to help me sleep. I am a diabetic, though, so I need to get up at least once a night, but it does help me get to sleep.
    Take care,
    Terry
