    Hi all, Insomnia is such a wide spread problem, not just amongst cfs but in general. Does anyone know of any new treatments on the horizon??

    The most effective meds seem to be off label stuff and have a bit of a hangover affect, which i dont mind if i dont have to get up early, i use these things on days off for catch up sleep. Benzo and z-drugs are ok but i find dont work unless you use them very irregularly.

    I just want to put in my request for a medication that gives us 7-8 hrs sleep with no hangover or tolerence, I think im dreamin, lol

    Sorry, I don't know if you are male or female. If you are a female and in perimenopause you could talk to your doctor about using progesterone cream. I just started on that three weeks ago and can't believe how much better I sleep now. I would never have associated hormones with insomnia.
