We strive to provide safe and effective treatments to improve your sleep and overall health. Our doctors at Simple Online Doctor will never prescribe sleep medicines that have the potential for addiction or reliance. If you require a hypnotic medicine or benzodiazepine for sleep, please refer to your regular GP for treatment.
Leaving yourself enough time to allocate to sleep can improve well-being and anxiety around getting to sleep. We recommend attempting to free up more time to get the amount of sleep you can feel rested with.
Caffeinated drinks and energy drinks may be affecting your ability to sleep. Try to cut down on these drinks, particularly when close to the time you intend to sleep. Read more about sleep hygiene here.
Taking naps too close to sleep time may cause difficulty sleeping. Read more about sleep hygiene here.
