I'm the exact same way. I'm 17 as well and usually take Tylenol PM every single night because if I don't, it takes me like an hour to fall asleep. It's best not to take over the counter sleep aids every night as you can grow dependant (too late for me). So talk to a doctor and get a prescription that doesn't have the risk of dependancy.

I have taken ambien in the past and found that it works well to get you to sleep it is a non dependant drug so it should help you out. Talk to your doctor about your problem and see what he says

you could also try focusing more on something of interest other than actually falling asleep Smile i have always found myself making it harder to fall asleep by focusing on when i will fall asleep Smile if that makes sense Smile
