Can hemp oil be taken while on Belsomra for insomnia?

My doctor is trying to solve my insomnia and took me off Ambien and Temanzapan and put me on Belsomra. Can I take Hemp Oil too without interaction. I have had Myasthenia Gravis for 15 years and assume my on again off again of Prenisone has been a big factor....

Hi, Can I take trazadone 50 mg for sleep,when I just started naltrexone hcl 1.5 mg capsule two nights ago? The ldn is to help recover my cells. My doctor overdosed me on estrogen and progesterone and lead to my brain swelling. I ve been off of the hormones for six weeks. now I realize my brain needs more sleep. But, ambien only keeps me asleep for 1 1/2 hours. I m desperate for sleep. I was told to go to emergency room and check in so they can prescribe something. I want to take this trazodone right now to sleep during today to catch up. My sister will stay with me this weekend while I do this daytime and nighttime sleep marathon.

I began taking Hydralazine 25 mg tabs twice a day last night. I have now taken three. I am unable to fall asleep again tonight. I feel hyper (shaky) and like my heart is racing. I also have tingling in my extremities. Are these common side effects when a person first starts taking this medication?
