Answer

My advice is this.
Do not use sleeping pills without your doctor's express permission. With all the drugs you are on presently it could be lethal for you, if you take the wrong kind of sleeping pill. The same goes for herbal sleep aids.

Talk to your doctoer first. You will be glad you did.
