Hello, I am 35 years old, a self-employed worker. Lately I often experience insomnia. I’ve been to a sleep disorder clinic and was prescribed a 1mg Ativan drug. But I don’t want that drug addiction. Initially I was able to consume Ativan for 3 days to improve sleep quality. now hmpr 2 months passed and insomnia returned again. I have read that there is a Swisse Ultiboost sleep supplement, it is not a sedative but rather an herbal remedy containing magnesium, valerian which is believed can help sleep quality. The question is, is it safe if I try to take supplements without consulting a doctor? Thx before.
