Getting your 8 hours of sleep at night is very important, and although everyone has the odd sleepless night, regular insomnia (trouble sleeping) can have a big impact on your health. For example, if you’re not getting enough sleep it can affect your concentration, making it difficult to focus on your work or other tasks.
Insomnia can make you feel irritable and grumpy, affecting your social life as a result, and in extreme cases, it can make it difficult for you to come with day to day life.
Remember, your final treatment will be decided by our prescribers based on your answers provided within your consultation. You will be asked to indicate a preferred treatment option from a selected list after completion of your consult.
Sleeping pills and other insomnia treatments can help you to drift off for a good night’s sleep, helping you to relax and create a sleeping pattern that will help you to fall asleep in future.
They help to make you feel drowsy and shorten the amount of time it takes for you to fall asleep at night.
This makes them ideal for those who suffer from temporary insomnia and have found that improvements to their sleep hygiene, like keeping a regular bedtime, avoiding caffeine, and turning your phone off, haven’t helped.
Sleep aids aren’t a long-term solution, but after a quick consultation our prescribers may decide to recommend sleeping tablets to treat insomnia so you can get back to normal and work to change your sleeping habits for the better.
