I don't have trouble getting to sleep initially but it's not unusual for me to waken up more than five or six times every night. Fatigue is a real problem for me and it affects my social life and employment quite a bit - I never work overtime or late shifts as I'm constantly knackered. I've tried St. John's Wort which is a herb that's supposed to be an anti depressant but it seems to help a bit with alleviating insomnia as well.

the solution may not be curing it but preventing it. preventing the 30-min-or-more pre-sleeping. i used to have coffee 3 times a day. now i only have it once and i have decaf. it helps. i can sleep better also.

They (whoever 'they' are) say that decaf is cancerogenic.

Drink real coffee, it's actually good for the heart.

Too much sleep is bad for you.
There have been studies involving more than a million participants which have found that people who sleep longer than 8 hours a day die younger.
Six to seven hours of sleep has been found to be the best amount for a longer life.

iron pills don't absorb well to the tissues, i got iron injection and i was much more effective. The bad thing is that singns after injection on your bottom will remain till the end of your life.
Naturally, try to eat a lot of beets and spinach
