Dear Sleep Doctors

DEAR SLEEP DOCTORS:

“Mary” in Kingston, TN 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.

“Jeremy” in Smyrna, TN writes:

Dear Sleep Doctors,
The melatonin is working GREAT! I’ve doubled my sleep hours in the last week and feel so much more
productive through the day. I will be listening again this weekend.

Listen in as the Sleep Doctors address Mary’s daughters problem.

We appreciate you listening to the show. If you have a sleep question, let us know.
