AP The National Sleep Foundation’s Sleep Research Institute released a study Wednesday that suggests a sleep pill can help people who are experiencing symptoms of insomnia, such as nightmares and sleeplessness.
The Sleep Research Initiative studied people who had insomnia for at least two months, and then again, after four months.
They were asked about the amount of sleep they got, and the effects of the pill on their sleep.
They found that the pill reduced the amount people slept by about a third compared to people who did not take it.
The researchers said they didn’t find any benefit in reducing the amount or quality of sleep people had, but said people should use the pill to help them fall asleep more easily.
“Our findings suggest that sleep and sleep quality should be considered as important factors in patients’ outcomes, and that the optimal dose, timing and duration of sleep are important determinants of sleep quality,” said John R. Sullivan, the study’s lead author and an assistant professor at the University of California, San Diego.
