A new study from The University of Leeds has revealed that adults in the UK who have bad sleeping habits are more likely to be overweight and obese with poorer metabolic health. The study involved 1615 adults and people who were sleeping on average 6 hours each night had a waist measurement that was 3cm longer than those who were sleeping an average of nine hours a night. If you are having difficulty falling asleep each night, you may be interested to know that sleeping tablets are now available at online pharmacies. The results of this study support other research that sleep deprivation could lead to the development of metabolic health conditions such as diabetes. It is for this reason that you are advised to take a sleeping aid like medication to help you get the required amount of sleep you need to live a healthy life. You could try Zolpidem medication. What is Zolpidem? Zolpidem is also known by the brand name, Ambien and it belongs to a group of medicines called hypnotics. It is used to treat sleeping problems such as difficulty falling asleep (sleep-onset insomnia) and frequent awakenings during the night. It is approved by the FDA and has a relatively short half-life of 3 hours which means it gets rapidly absorbed and expelled from your body. How should I take these sleeping tablets?
