Well, I have come to the conclusion that I will not be able to sleep the night before the exam, and there is nothing I can do about it. I didn't sleep for my MCATs, I didn't sleep for a single exam in med school, and I am suffering from insomnia two weeks before my step 1. I have tried everyting, and I just can't fall asleep. I don't have health insurance so now hypnotics for me. Alcohol doesn't work, anti-histamines make me groggy (nyquil or dyphenhydramine). So, I remit to my insomnia, and realize that I will have to take my exam with 2 hours of sleep. Caffeine intake stops early. I exercise every day, like a maniac (have been doing it for 8 years now), my diet is near perfect (health fanatic). My test is at 12 pm, so I can't schedule it any earlier. Anyone been through the exam with 2 hours?
