Bedwetting and Sleep

Dear Sleep Doctors

This week our question comes from Mary in Kingston. She writes:
Dear Sleep Doctors,
My daughter has a severe form of insomnia. I am very concerned because she is so sleep deprived that she gets confused easily and forgets things constantly. Even with Ambien she gets about two or three hours of sleep and she can’t get them any more so she barely sleeps at all and has to ration her pills. She has only a few left. She is in her early fifties. Please help her. I am afraid of her early demise. She has tried everything on the market, she says and just can’t get relief for this problem.

Find out the advice the Sleep Doctors give to Mary.

Thanks for reading, listening and commenting. We appreciate our listeners! Pleasant Dreams!
