Andrea, a couple of things I've learned about sleep:

- benadryl or any antihistamine is not something you should take daily for long periods for sleep, it is correlated with dementia

- avoiding blue light is super important; try using some blue blocker shades and reading a book for an hour before you need to go to bed

- don't get in bed until you're REALLY tired

- use low amounts of melatonin, start with 1mg

- cool and dark room is helpful

- exercise is important

- THC is inconsistent with sleep assistance, some people experience a bounce-back in the middle of the night and sleep poorly because of it

I've been working with a sleep medicine doctor for years now.
