    Generally I can fall asleep but only for about an hour.  Then I up and trying to find something that will make me tired like warm milk or quiet music.  Sometimes I'm able to sleep for another 3 to 4 hours.

    Takes A While.

    For normal or old people, takes about 20 minutes average. But for me, it takes hours until I finally fall into a deep sleep. I mostly take allergy pills or on serious cases, 1 sleep aid gel pill.
