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.
Have you ever been diagnosed with the following:
Based on BMI, are you considered obese (a BMI over 30)?
You can access a BMI calculator here if you are unsure.
A raised BMI can cause sleep problems in some people. Consider speaking to a doctor about weight loss to further assist with sleep and general health.
This may be a sign of an undiagnosed condition. Refer to your doctor and discuss how you are feeling. If you do not feel comfortable contacting a doctor, please call Beyond Blue at 1300 22 4636 or Lifeline at 13 11 14.

You require reliable access to the internet on a device which you can use to have a video consultation with the doctor in order to be suitable for telehealth. Please refer to your regular GP in person.
If we are unable to assist via a telehealth consultation, you may be asked to seek alternative medical care such as that of a doctor in person. If this occurs you will receive a refund on your request.
