Surprise: We’re still over-prescribing sleeping pills (especially to seniors)

Sleeping pills are still being over-prescribed.

It would appear that this is even more common amongst older insomnia sufferers.

According to British research, 1 in 5 seniors who suffer from insomnia haven't had their drug regimen reviewed by their doctor.

This goes against official guidelines.

Shockingly, two thirds of these patients were not even given information or advice about alternative treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy - they were simply given sleeping pills and sent on their way.

Cognitive behavioral therapy has been proven time and time again to be an effective insomnia cure.

Sleeping pills aren't an insomnia cure. 80% of those given sleeping pills in this study continued to suffer from symptoms of insomnia.

Interestingly, it was found that younger patients were given more treatment options and support compared to older patients.

Sleeping pills should always be a last resort. Never the first.
