How To Sleep During Opiate Withdrawal – Natural Non-Addictive Sleep Aids


How To Sleep During Opiate Withdrawal

One of the biggest problems with Opiate withdrawal is the lack of sleep that happens when a person addicted to opiates starts to withdraw. One of the biggest things that drives people BACK to using is the lack of sleep, it drives them crazy and all they want to do is get some sleep. There’s no wonder that they use sleep deprivation for torture, it makes people give into just about anything just to get some sleep. I’ve put together a small list of Sleep aids to help you sleep while going through Opiate Withdrawal. They are natural based, non-addictive, and non-prescribed.

Melissa Supreme – by GAIA Herbs

My first and foremost on the list is what I used for my agitation while withdrawing and helped me to sleep too, Melissa Supreme by Gaia Herbs. It’s a proprietary blend of herb including:
Lemon Balm(Melissa Officialis), German Chamomile, Passion Flower, Fresh Skullcap Herb, Fresh Wild Oat Milky Seed, Gotu Kola and Mineral salts extracted from Kelp.

Somnapure – by GNC

I’ve not taken this but a fellow addict in recovery from this site has, and he said he was finally able to sleep thanks to this product called Somnapure by Peak Life. From the website:

“a sleep aid that is safe and effective, Somnapure’s naturally occurring ingredients are non-habit forming and won’t leave you feeling groggy the next day.”

Somnapure® contains premium, natural ingredients that you are already familiar with:

  • Melatonin – A naturally occurring compound that helps regulate sleep patterns.
  • Valerian – A perennial herb used for centuries to promote relaxation and reduce the time it takes to fall asleep.
  • L-Theanine – An amino acid commonly found in green tea that exhibits a relaxing effect.
  • Lemon Balm – An herb in the mint family used to promote sleep through relaxation.
  • Hops – A flower cluster used to increase alpha-waves, decreasing the time it takes to fall asleep.
  • Chamomile Flower – A daisy-like flower known for its calming effects and use in herbal teas.
  • Passion Flower – A beautiful flower used to promote sleep.

Sleep Wave Rest and Relax – NutriHealth Supplements

This product I have not taken either, however I have taken some of the ingredients. GABA for one will help stop that mental mind chatter that happens with withdrawal. The constant chatter of noise that goes on in the head. It’s also great for sleep as it does quiet the mind. That and the Melissa Officialis(Lemon Balm) are great for soothing the mind and body. This product has just about the same ingredients as the Somnapure, above, but in a different mixture of quantity.

  • Synergistic blends of valerian, lemon balm and other herbs, as well as essential melatonin, work to promote sleep and improve sleep quality.
  • GABA, L-theanine, chamomile and passionflower promote relaxation and help calm that “brain-spinning” mind chatter that keeps you from falling asleep.

If you are trying to get some sleep while going through opiate withdrawal. these sleep aids can help to promote a good nights sleep, or at least maybe a few hours during the first parts of opiate withdrawal. This is critical for many as the lack of sleep can push an addict in withdrawal back to the drugs they are trying to get off of.

    I’m 32 years old and I have been battling a heavy norco addiction for almost 5 years. I have tried to ween, with no luck, I have went cold turkey numerous times but I always end up going back to those evil little yellow pills. I’ve spent over 10 grand on pills since feb of this year… I’m ready to quit. Like many of you guys, I’m tired of the pill counting, not being able to attend social functions for the fear of not having enough pills to make it thru the day. I’ve missed so much work, spending the day trying to find more, I’ve drove 8 hours to get them… They’ve taken over my life. Last week, I went to the doctor for a severe kidney infection. I’m scared I’m gonna die. Have to quit!! I have been taking 30-10/325 pills a day. I eat 8 at a time, no schedule, jet whenever I feel like I want to take them. I’ve od’ed on the aspirin in the 7,5’s before and threw up for days. This Wednesday is my last day of this addiction. I requested vacation time thurs and Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I’m scared. Ive found a little bit of comfort after finding this page. I’m not alone… Thank you for creating a page like this! Now I have someplace to turn to. So, let the count down begin! I can’t wait to be free from my addiction!!

      Melissa, you should probably get some added support, maybe NA or some thing similar. It will greatly help your chances of getting off and staying off.
      Good luck,
