Did you know, if you fall asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow, or under 5 minutes, you are likely sleep deprived? It should take between 7-15 minutes but up to 40 isn't unheard of for normal sleep. Woman China is right, you need a good circadian rhythm. But, KKJ, you mentioned before that you had a heart transplant, so the meds you take may very well be affecting how long it takes you to fall asleep. Medication & movement disorders such as Restless Leg Syndrome are huge causes of difficulty falling asleep.
