What kind of meds are you talking about? Prescribed or over the counter like Melatonin? (:


ive got a prescription for both melatonin and valium (diazepam). sometimes i only take one of them, and sometimes i take both. (when i need to sleep)



Ohhh I've heard bad things about valium. Both it being addictive(?) and that it can be a little altering depending on the person, I would reccommend some hot tea (of you like tea), maybe some ginger tea (it helps with stress!), I personally love jasmine, oolong & vanilla tea (not french vanilla) and take your melatonin, (I personally take organic strawberry disolvable tablets) not because they are organic, but because they taste good and enter your body slowly, allowing you to wind down and watch some tv or read until you feel relaxed and not zombified or out of control of your body. Also, these are the only melatonin that don't make me feel like a zombie :/ I felt like crap after taking white metaonin pills (in the orange transprent bottles by nature something) that hit you like a truck.

Here is what it looks like! You can get different doses of it, 1mg, 3mg, 5mg, and 10mg. Sorry for the massive picture. Oml

Im only allowed to take my valium every 3 days (because it can be addictive), but because it kinda gives me bad dreams i only take it about once a week. I take pure melatonin now and it works so much better than some other medicine i took before which was supposed to be melatonin but it contained residues of other stuff or something and it made me soo depressed and i could barely eat nor sleep when i took it. i was basically a zombie?? so i can relate to that feeling.

i love tea tho so i will try the kinds that you wrote down and maybe take a lower dose of the melatonin so maybe that could help? thanks!

You're welcome no problem! I will say I haven't tried the ginger tea yet, and you can also buy ginger supplements for anxiety (a friend of mine takes these because she is on seizure medication and cannot mix the medications). But my brother swears by it, and I plan on trying it :3 I'm worried about the taste! Haha

Aw man now I'm more worried to try it lol I chose cranberry tea last time I went shopping and oooml its so so bad could not finsh a cup. I love cranberries, I can't remember I think it was tart tart tart xD

I tried peach tea recently and it was o-k with milk added. Blueberry tea smells delicious but tastes like liquid blueberries and I hate blueberries, but usually like blueberry flavored things haha
Hot tea is usually hit or miss xD

    Well no one replied to help with the mascot, so that kind of bums me out.

    If no one has any input I'll just decide myself.

    but

    Does anyone like this fella I designed?
    -lines not by me, design is-
