I wish you’d said when you go to bed. I found the best time for me to take my Lexapro is with dinner. I sleep better at night, and I’m more awake the next day. I usually hit the hay between 10 and 11 pm.
For the most part, your insomnia may well work itself out if you could just sit down and flesh out your recent problems with a friend. Rogerian therapy is best when all you need is an ear to listen to you. Failing that you can always try Benadryl if you have it lying around the house. The active ingredient, diphenhydramine, is a potent anti-histamine whose side effect is drowsiness (usually ~40 minutes or so). You can find it [diphenhydramine] under different names at any local drug store selling sleep aides.P.S. I would suggest warm milk and cookies (or maybe ice cream) – dairy products have tons of tryptophan in them (and we all know how fast tryptophan will knock you out!) The starch in cookies and ice cream will help the tryptophan operon/production (read: it makes you go to sleep). Good luck!

Smoking pot, while useful against sleep deprivation and an unsteady metabolism is only useful when underlying stress goes unmanaged, and that is only to say its useful in forgetting what the original problem is.
The first line of treatment in patients with insomnia is the non-medical treatments. These are procedures which does not use any drug or medication to treat or manage insomnia. You can try Relaxation Therapy which involves modalities that will help you relax and clear your mind. Examples of which are meditation, aromatherapy, listening to music and deep breathing exercises. As you are pregnant, taking medicine for insomnia is definitely a big no for you.
