Hi Tiffany.  I suffer from schizophrenia and often hear voices for a good part of the day.  For the most part I am used to this and can tolerate them well enough.  But when I try to sleep I often find that nothing is worse than constantly hearing someone jabber in my ear.  While it may not be for everyone I find that often a six pack of beer before bedtime will help me sleep, although I am certainly not recommending that you take up drinking if you don't already.  But there are alternatives that can help you sleep, for instance try taking a melatonin with a shot of Nyquil.  If that is not helpful you can speak to your doctor about some under the counter alternatives.  Seroquel has helped me in the past.  Good luck and I hope you get your z's

@Hidden username I am sorry you are struggling with schizophrenia... I can imagine that may be more difficult than just having depression to get a good nights sleep with.

I agree with you that melatonin works, but I would caution the use of nyquil constantly as it is medication and can cause some damage to the liver, etc. with regular use. @Hidden username‍ try the melatonin and getting on a regular sleeping schedule and turning off all the lights - no TV and no cell phone. See if that will help.

If not, then perhaps speaking with a professional for alternative may help.
