Up to 35% of individuals experience insomnia. The inability to get asleep, stay asleep all through the night, or sleep as much as you’d like until morning are all symptoms of this condition. Insomnia can have negative consequences, including excessive drowsiness during the day, an increased risk of car accidents, and numerous sleep-related health issues.

Sometimes you can be very tired and still have trouble falling asleep. Other times, you wake up in the middle of the night and lie awake for hours, listening to the ticking of the clock and counting the hours left until morning.

However, it is well known that everyone needs a different amount of sleep. That is why insomnia is characterized more by the quality of your sleep and how rested you feel after waking up than by the length of time you sleep or how easily you fall asleep.

    I am 76 years old. I had triple by-pass surgery in July of 2019 in which my esophagus was damaged when they had to inject a breathing tube since my lungs were being by-passed. Then I have had three major disabling strokes. I seemed to be recovering and I had another stroke that has made me re-dependent on my walker. The insomnia was evident while I was in the hospital so they gave me narcotic level prescription. Eventually I stopped that and switched to a variety of OTC supplements especially Melatonin.
