Hello, I've been having trouble sleeping for the past 5
Patient :Hello, I've been having trouble sleeping for the past 5 years or so, I think the main issue is stress. First let me give you some background of myself. I'm an 18 year old female and I usually have to lay in bed for 4 hours or more to get any kind of sleep.
So my question is should I be taking sleep aids and are there any severe long term side effects? And would it be harmful to sleep every other night, because that usually seems to work for me without any drowsiness in between sleeps.
