SLEEP SUPPORT

Cedra Pharmacy is here to give you the sleep that you need.

Insomnia is a condition in which an individual can have a difficult time falling asleep or staying asleep. Lack of sleep can affect our mood, our physical wellness and our overall happiness. The natural sleep hormone is called melatonin, and it is secreted at night when darkness is approaching which causes us to become sleepy.

Prescription medications can sometimes block the effects of melatonin. Ask your pharmacist to review your medications if you have sleep problems. Lifestyle changes such as limiting caffeine and alcohol in the evening can help to improve sleep, as well as limiting food intake close to bedtime. 

Exposure to bright lighting before bedtime, such as starting a computer screen, video games, or television, sometimes can make melatonin production difficult. Prescription medications prescribed for sleep can become problematic as they can adversely affect the normal sleep cycle, especially the REM sleep cycle.

To address insomnia and sleep problems, we recommend starting with a quality sleep supplement to help restore the natural sleep rhythm. Cedra carries:

  • Sleep Support
  • Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate
  • Magnesium Chelate 400mg
