Sleeping Aid

Sleep problems are commonplace. In addition to disrupting sleep at night, these issues can have lasting effects on day-to-day life.

One of the most prevalent sleep disorders is insomnia. Up to two-thirds of adults experience symptoms of insomnia, which can include problems falling asleep and/or staying asleep as well as sleepiness, slowed thinking, or other impairments during the day. Insomnia is often tied to sleep deprivation, which can have serious consequences for physical and mental health.

To address insomnia and other sleep issues, many people turn to sleep aids. These include prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and dietary supplements. Older adults with chronic health conditions may occasionally take sleep aids to help them get the rest they need. People with circadian rhythm related sleep problems such as jet lag and shift work sleep disorder may also benefit from taking sleep-inducing supplements.

Every sleep aid has potential benefits and downsides, and it is important for individuals to be informed about their treatment options and talk with a doctor about the best option in their personal situation.
