Insomnia: We get many queries about medications to help with poor sleep patterns, but the available medications all have side effects including memory problems and addictiveness. This leaflet discusses self help for sleep problems avoiding drugs: There is good evidence that ‘Cognitive Behavioural Therapy’ can help patients with insomnia – this can be accessed through ‘Freecbti’. Another option is listening to slow, soft soothing music at bedtime – ‘Sleep’ by Max Richter was specifically written in co-operation with neuroscientists for the purpose (it is 8.5 hours long and can be played through the night to keep you dozing) and is widely available on streaming services.
