    If you’ve found yourself struggling to fall asleep over the last few days, then you’re probably getting really frustrated. There’s nothing quite like the sensation of struggling to get through the day because you’re so tired, only to find that once you finally climb under our covers and get your head on the pillow, you’re just as wide awake as you’ve been the last few nights. It’s natural to look for help, and the local pharmacy definitely offers plenty of sleep aids, but it is important that you understand what you’re taking before you go that route, so let’s take a closer look.

  • The Sleeping Pill Decision

    For the millions of people who struggle every night with insomnia, the question of whether or not to seek help from prescription sleep aids is a big one. At first glance it might seem like an easy decision – after all, what could be easier? You take a pill before you go to bed and then you’re able to fall asleep easily and sleep through the night.

    With sleep deprivation at epidemic levels in the United States, people are searching for ways to get the rest that they need. Though most sleep specialists believe that sleeping pills should only be used for brief periods of time and prefer that patients try to find and treat the cause of their sleeplessness, they also understand that there are some times when people simply need to turn to medication.

  • Sleep Doctor Identifies Failures in Sleep Medications

    When people are having a hard enough time falling asleep that they seek medical help, they are usually looking for an easy answer, and all too often that comes in the form of a pill. Joan Rossman is a classic example of the type – a psychotherapist, Rossman found herself unable to fall asleep, and when she did fall asleep easily she would wake up far earlier than she wanted to and find herself unable to fall back to sleep. “Whether I was preoccupied or excited, it played out in my sleep patterns. I would awaken just exhausted. I knew something was not right,” she said. Continue reading
