Have Trouble Sleeping???

Having Trouble Sleeping? It Could be Your Age

Studies have shown that problems sleeping can be age-related. We suggest watching the people at QVC describe collectable dolls, but here's some age- based tips for getting good shut-eye when that doesn't work.


Can't seem to rest and sleepy time tea hasn't helped? Don't bum yourself out. Depression cause sleep problems such as insomnia, but some antidepressant medications may have sleep-related side effects. Talking to some (a therapist or even your dog) can really help your mind ease in the wee hours.

New mothers having trouble resting even when the baby is? Five to 10 percent of women develop postpartum thyroiditis, which may disrupt sleep.


Sounds of the ocean machine only makes you want to pee more? If you're waking up to pee a lot more lately, don't assume it's a sign of aging — you might actually have a urinary tract infection (UTI).

Deep, restorative sleep (called delta or slow-wave sleep) decreases in your late 40s, making nighttime awakenings more frequent. The cure might be as simple as a little aerobic exercise. When you give your body more repair work to do thanks to increased physical exertion, it responds by stepping up the amount of slow-wave sleep you'll get.


Prescription drugs you may be taking for high blood pressure and cholesterol could affect your pillow time. Ask your doc if you can take your meds in the morning.

Snoring an issue? Conic snoring is a huge sign of obstructive sleep apnea. OSA can have some heavy consequences, such as worsening or increasing the risk of developing diabetes, hypertension, or stroke.

Talk to your doctor about your sleep issues and with treatment, you could be snoozing more peacefully in no time!

Michael Jackson’s Doctor Pleads Not Guilty To Involuntary Manslaughter

Michael Jackson’s Doctor Pleads Not Guilty To Involuntary Manslaughter

This is going to get ugly.

Dr. Conrad Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of his patient, Michael Jackson. Prosecutors will now attempt to prove that Murray’s negligence in prescribing the anesthetic propofol was the cause of Michael's death.

Murray’s medical license has been suspended. Its return to him is contingent on the outcome of this case. If he loses, he will likely never practice medicine again and could face up to four years in prison.

Michael Jackson was prescribed propofol to help him overcome insomnia, even though propofol is a powerful surgical anesthetic and not intended for home use. Jackson’s unsupervised use of propofol along with other drugs is was what caused his death.

We think Murray is guilty! If propofol was never meant to be prescribed for home use, and it’s obviously a powerful drug that requires close supervision, he never should have given it to Michael!

What do U think??

FDA Panel Recommends New Diet Pill For Approval

Filed under: DrugsDietsHealth

Could this the answer for people struggling with their weight?

For the first time in a decade, an FDA panel has recommended a new diet pill for approval.

Contrave is supposed to increase the metabolism, while curbing appetite, but has some serious eyebrow raising side effects such as increased blood pressure, dizziness, and insomnia.

On top of the side effects, it doesn't seem to be very effective as studies failed to prove dieters taking the pill would lose more than 5% of their body weight.

Check out the video above as ABC News explains!

Surfer Andy Iron’s Death Possibly An Overdose

Surfer Andy Irons Death Possibly An Overdose

This is awful.

Three-time world surfing champion Andy Irons was found dead this morning in his hotel room in Texas, and it is now reported that a bottle of Zolpidem, a powerful medicine for insomnia that contains methadone, was found next to the bed.

An autopsy will be conducted to officially determine the cause of death, but because there were no other signs of trauma, the pills are the likely candidate.

Irons leaves behind a wife, Lyndie, who is seven-months pregnant with the couple's first child.

Please, please, please, keep this family in your thoughts!

Teri Hatcher Fighting Insomia

Teri Hatcher Fighting Insomia

Teri Hatcher is battling insomnia and is trying desperately to sleep, but something is holding her back — an incurable shoulder infection.

Said Hatcher:

“I haven't been sleeping well, or at all… because I have something called frozen shoulder. It is a real thing… It feels like one of those things that you see on an infomercial and you go, 'That's not real.’ It really is extremely painful, actually… It (shoulder) doesn't move.”

"You can't really solve it,” she added. “Apparently, this is a condition that lasts for a year or two years and then miraculously goes away.”

On an unrelated note, Teri is also trying to learn how to not compulsively chop off her own hair.

"I'm looking in the mirror and I think, 'Bangs, that'll be a good idea!' I took a pair of scissors and just hacked it (hair) off… There's a point where you go, 'Wow, there's really no going back at this point… I was in denial for about a day and then I called my hairdresser… and was like, 'Please help me!'"


We hope Teri can get to sleep soon! Desperate housewives desperately need their beauty rest!

Corey Haim Battled Severe Insomnia

Filed under: DrugsMichael JacksonSad Sad


Since the premature death of Corey Haim, information has been leaking out as to why the former child star began abusing prescription medication in the first place.

"I have a Michael Jackson problem," Haim said only weeks ago, referring to his longtime battle with insomnia. "I know I should be more careful, but I really need a boatload of drugs just so I can get to sleep for a few hours."

So sad.
