Tossing and turning all night? I’ve done it and you’ve done it, but what can we do when we know it’s time to sleep and we lay awake in bed? Using prescription medication as a sleep aid subjects you to many possible side effects like diarrhea, headache, and heartburn. In fact, some sleeping pills can cause you to sleepwalk…YIKES!!! There is also a risk that one becomes dependent (addicted) to the sleeping pills. There are a few simple techniques you can do to try and get some well-needed sleep (without the side effects).
