So, I'm not much of a road warrior. I try to be home every night that it's possible but end up away from home 1-2nights a month... on those nights I cannot sleep. I have a lot of trouble with sleep anyway (thanks raging anxiety) but when I'm on the road even my meds don't help. Last time I was genuinely fearful of an OD bc I forgot I had a couple beers at dinner and then took my meds- the exact cocktail that killed Heath Ledger according to my doc.
Anyway, my usual is 2x pills of my "insomnia" med (it's actually an anxiety med but prescribed for insomnia) and 5 melatonin. I'm still unable to sleep but do force myself lay in bed all night with a sleepy time podcast on. I have 4 that I cycle through; they always work at home but never on the road.
TELL ME WHAT YOU PROS DO!! I have a week long conference coming up and absolutely cannot go without sleep for that long.
