    Some drugs doesn’t take effect well on some people, and they tend to take up more if it doesn’t work – making it unhealthy!

    My basic concern with sleeping pills is that insomnia, while linked to many neurobiological processes, is often caused by plain old stress or even avoiding things that need to be faced. In this view difficulty falling asleep can be linked to these unresolved issues or feelings braking through when your defenses are down while trying to sleep. We need to address these issues when they cause sleep problems. In addition, drugs like Ambien, which seem to work for a lot of people, when taken over the course of a few consecutive days, often lead to a vicious cycle of depending on the sleep aid to get to sleep at all: after 3 days most people will have insomnia due to taking the drug–which naturally leads to taking it again and having trouble ever getting off of it! Bottom line: whenever possible try to address the underlying stress associated with the sleep.

      THANK YOU Hank,

      I’m reading over the articles… It funny because about 8 months ago I switched my perception glass to have a amber hue (yellow) because I work so much on my computer… I also feel better waring them, they give everything a brighter feel to it and I’ve notice a little lift in my step since Ive been using them. i never contributed to my eye-ware…

      “Less extreme, though, is simply managing your exposure to light, and being aware of what type of light it is. Blue light emanates from your TV and computer screen – try a yellow filter for the screen or wear yellow glasses to cut down at night, and don’t use a nightlight unless it’s yellow. These and other commonsense tips are what Dr. Phelps is great at communicating. Have a look around the rest of his site while you’re there, including his book Why Am I Still Depressed?.”
