Sure, searching for that elusive cure can make you a little desperate - but whatever you do, don't try making your own insomnia medication in an attempt to cure your insomnia.
Unfortunately our advice comes a little late for Ross Jorgensen; in March he became the first person in Queensland, Australia, to be sentenced for producing the lethal drug known as 'death'.
The drug, otherwise known as paramethoxyamphetamine (PMA), is related to ecstasy. Some claim that a small dose can induce sleep and help relieve insomnia symptoms.
This didn't wash with local police or the judge who sentenced Ross to a two year suspended jail term.
You have been warned!
