Getting the proper nights sleep is a critical aspect to your health, both physically and mentally. Experiencing anxiety is very commonly associated with trouble sleeping (Insomnia). If you have difficulty falling asleep, wake up often during the night or too early in the morning and have trouble going back to sleep, or normally find yourself feeling tired upon waking, then you’ve probably wondered, “can sleeping pills help anxiety?” 

Well, they can help you sleep through your anxiety, but there is an ugly truth about sleeping pills. The sad fact is sleeping pills do NOT give you the restful sleep you need to function optimally during the day. In the end, the costs far outweigh the benefits. The most popular prescription sleeping pills contain the pharmaceutical drug, Zolpidem. While it’s extremely effective, be on the alert for potential side effects, including…

  • Unwelcome hallucinations…
  • Major problems with memory…
  • Mental confusion…
  • Excessive daytime tiredness (Just because you wake up doesn’t mean the drugs have left your system)…
  • Dangerous sleepwalking…

And this is just the start! Here is what Dr. Daniel F. Kripke had to say in his book “The Dark Side of Sleeping Pills”: 

 “We have now published a new study of over 10,000 patients who took sleeping pills and over 20,000 matched patients who did not take sleeping pills.

The patients who took sleeping pills DIED 4.6 times as often during follow-ups averaging 2.5 years. Patients who took higher doses (averaging over 132 pills per year) died 5.3 times as often.

Even those patients who took fewer than 18 pills per year had very significantly elevated mortality, 3.6 times that of patients who took no hypnotics.”

Dr. Kripke continues:  “In addition, those who averaged over 132 sleeping pills per year, were 35% more likely to develop a new CANCER.”

And if premature death and cancer aren’t enough to put you on high alert…A study, published in the British Medical Journal and which involved nearly 9,000 people aged 66 and older found that patients prescribed the drugs for any length of time — even just a few weeks — were 51 per cent more likely to get Alzheimer’s, compared with someone who’d never taken them.

It gets worse…

Coming OFF the pills is a major challenge because your anxiety or insomnia kicks in x10!  Why do you think sufferers often continue popping the pills even when they’re no longer working?

Over time, sleeping pills cause you to lose trust in your own ability to sleep naturally.  Let me ask you, are sleeping pills really worth it?
