I have trouble sleeping sometimes, and I usually nyquil myself to sleep, but if I'm taking vikes and stuff the APAP concerns me.
Right now I'm on a steady diet of 250-400 mg of ultram a day, and was curious if taking Valerian root would be okay to sleep. It says not to use it with tranqs or sedatives.
If it is alright I was curious if it could maybe even help potent the ultram, as I imagine it has the warning because I'd be taking more CNS depressant and could potentially stop breathing (likely with high doses of both drugs, but thats the case with all depressants I thought).
I'm actually trying to taper down my ultram right now too, and I can't sleep usually a few nights when I quit (restless leg syndrome, as a withdrawl). So I think the Valerian root will help me a lot. Nyquil makes me groggy and want to get high as soon as I wake up, Valerian root avoids that.
Thanks for any info =)
