As you know drug advertisements are all over the place and they spend a lengthy time talking about the all the effects the medication has. Ever ask yourself, how does this pill know where my problem in my body is? It doesn’t, it affects the whole body including your brain and its hormones. Prescriptions and OTC meds can have dramatic effects on your ability to stay, fall, and get quality restorative sleep by interfering with the brains natural rhythm. Check your medications for the effects they have on your body and become educated.
