What can I do if I have frequent sleep issues?

Dr. Michael Roizen, MD
Internal Medicine
Ask your doctor about Ambien, Lunesta or Rozerem. These long-acting prescriptions will give you less of a hangover than other drugs may, but some docs feel they're addictive. The controlled-release (CR) versions will give you a boost after four hours to avoid middle-of-the-night awakening. Lunesta works like Ambien but is thought to be non-addictive. Rozerem works like melatonin in my opinion and is nonaddictive.
