Pillhub | Insomnia


Insomnia is a sleep disorder that can make it hard to fall asleep, hard to stay asleep, or cause you to wake up too early and not be able to get back to sleep. It is also not staying asleep long enough to feel refreshed the next morning. Insomnia is very common in the UK, affecting around 1 in 3 adults at some point in their life.

Insomnia can happen for a number of reasons such as anxiety or depression. Other reasons may be more external, such as noisy neighbours or being in a new environment.

Lifestyle changes and medications can provide reliable and fast acting relief from temporary sleeping difficulties.

What are the signs and symptoms of insomnia?

You could be experiencing insomnia if you regularly:
• Have trouble going to sleep
• Have trouble staying asleep and are awake often throughout the night
• Lie awake at night
• Have trouble getting back to sleep after waking up during the night
• Feel tired and irritable after waking up and throughout the day
• Find it difficult to concentrate because you’re tired

If you experience these symptoms for less than 3 months, it’s referred to as short-term insomnia. If your sleeping issues continue for longer than this, it’s called long-term or chronic insomnia.

There are many potential causes for insomnia, including:

• Stress, anxiety, or depression
• Sleeping conditions (e.g. too hot, too cold, uncomfortable bed)
• Use of recreational drugs (e.g. cannabis, ecstasy)
• Consumption of caffeine, alcohol, or nicotine
• Irregular shift patterns (e.g. nightshifts)

If you have attempted to address the potential issues above but are still struggling to sleep, then there are several over-the-counter medications available to relieve temporary sleeping difficulties.
