How Was Your Sleep Last Night?
August 25, 2008
Did you have trouble falling asleep last night? Did you experience difficulty staying asleep or did you wake up too early? If your answers were "yes," "yes" and "all the time," you have something in common with your fellow Americans. A survey of 1,466 adults conducted by the Consumer Reports National Research Center found that 44 percent of the respondents reported those problems — for many, repeatedly. The survey, to be published in the Consumer Report's September issue, also found that many people turn to medicine to treat sleep disorders, such as insomnia. According to the survey, almost 1 in 5 Americans used prescription or over-the-counter drugs at least once a week to combat sleepiness.
