In using light therapy, is it better to go outside into the sunshine, and for how
long? Also, should I wear sun glasses. With regards to the non-benzodiazepines, I am already taking Alprazolam 0.5 mg and it does seem to help but I am afraid of becoming dependent on it. Would you recommend something else? I have been having this problem for 4 years now, along with menopause and have tried many "natural" sleeping aids like herbal tea, melatonin (3 mg), kava kava, passion flower, etc.
