HaloGirl66 Posted December 20, 2006 Share Posted December 20, 2006 Experts discuss OTC Sleep Aids The American Academy of Sleep Medicine, a professional organization dedicated to the assurance of quality care for patients with sleep disorders, has issued a position statement on treating insomnia with over-the-counter sleep aids and/or herbal supplements.... AASM Position - Sufficient evidence does not exist to support over-the-counter (OTC) sleep aids as an effective treatment for insomnia. OTC sleep aids that contain antihistamine may provide modest, short-term benefits for adults with mild cases of insomnia. It is important to be aware, however, that the use of antihistamines may produce a variety of side effects. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
