What about Medication?
Dr. Drerup is not a big fan of sleep medications, whether over-the-counter (OTC) or available by prescription only. Medications for insomnia often cause excessive daytime drowsiness, and may be associated as well with inability to think clearly, mouth dryness, blurred vision, and even the possibility of long-term dependence and addiction.
Is Stress Causing You to Lose Sleep?
Stress, depression, and anxiety are thought to be factors in at least half of all cases of insomnia. Stress management is an essential component of learning to improve sleep quality and quantity.
Why Is Sleep So Important?
During sleep, a variety of processes occur to restore our minds and bodies to their normal, healthy baseline. When we sleep poorly, our bodies miss out on the chance to recharge, both physically and mentally. Personal sleep needs do vary depending on the person, and sleep needs vary further with age, stress levels, and general health. It is fair to say that insomnia is a nationwide problem.
