I am a female of weight 60 kg and height 176 cm. I have been having extreme trouble with sleeping for about 18 months now. I struggle to get to bed, and when I finally do, I wake up once in one and a half hour or so and feel like the sleep is not a deep one. I feel like I have a restless night sleep every night. I am currently taking 0.5 mg of Cabergoline a week for a benign pituitary gland tumor. My specialist has ruled this out being the cause of sleep trouble. I have tried supplements like magnesium, which did not work. I also have a set bedtime routine to help relax before sleep and limit phone use before bed. I have also tried things like warm milk before bed, which also has little effect. Could you please advise on other causes and possible treatment?
