I now suffer from a significant amount of insomnia. It seems to be getting worse and I a. now getting a poor response to traditional prescription sleep medication. Is it possible that my melatonin levels and my magnesium levels have been decreased due to my insulin analog therapies?
I tried over the counter combination of melatonin plus magnesium therapy and this seems to be improving my sleep quality and duration over the past 3 nights.
Have had type 2 for over 20 years. I'm told by doctors that I have to be on insulin. But, it is not really controlling my blood sugar as well as it should, and it's caused me to gain a lot of weight, including belly bloat! Not sure what to do. So tired of it.

I’m not certain about where you live but in my area if one drug helps better your doctor can request in writing the insurance company and request the better med for you. Worth a try.
