For years I have succesfully taken the lowest dose (1 pill) of the following to get a good night's rest because I suffer from PTSD and panic attacks--especially at night: L-tryptophan; melatonin; a combo of magnesium, potassium, calcium & Vit D (but only 1/2 to prevent diarrhea from the magnesium), and Valerian. I practice all the good sleep habits diligently (only 2 cups of coffee a day and before 8 am, dark cool room with a fan for white noise, etc.,) because proper sleep is very important to delay the onset of Alzheimer's (my mother and her mother had it). Once very two weeks if the news has been very upsetting--I only watch it in the morning-- I'll wake up and despite reading a very dull book and inhaling lavender resort to an Advil Pm.
A month ago I added the lowest dose of 5-HTP and am debating whether to add GABA of inositol. Perhaps I should take more of fewer aids or different aids instead of so many varieties. I have never taken an RX for sleep although I did take RX for PTSD, anxiety, and panic attacks for years, but I stopped about 5 years ago. I am 70 years old with no other health problems.

I wanted to go on the lowest dose of hormone patch I could, so my doctor gave me the 0.025 patch. I have been on it for one year. I am 68 and in good health. After retiring, I want to watch the cost of meds. This patch has gone from $40 to $95 for the upcoming year. It costs more than the 0.0375 patch I was taking before. Will it hurt me not to wear a patch at all? My doctor hates to go back up to the 0.0375 after dropping down at my request a year ago. Thank you.

Hi I currently do not have health insurance and suffer from anxiety...My regular doc has me on the lowest dose of xanax, I am wondering if I can get a prescription online for it instead of having to go to my doc while I don t have health insurance or if this is illegal, I don t want to do anything thats illegal but I read you can get an online doctor is this true?
