Symptoms and treatment Doctors very often recommend various sleeping pills in the fight against insomnia. Unfortunately, most of these drugs give serious side effects, so it is not recommended to use them constantly, only with severe sleep disturbance. If you stubbornly decided to take sleeping pills, then use it in a short course, about 2-3 days, in order to avoid getting used to the body. The next such course can be repeated in a few weeks.

You can add to this list: motherwort, hawthorn, valerian, melissa and chamomile. Just do not need to mix all or several components at the same time, it is better to choose one and try it on yourself, because all people are individual and each one will have something different for themselves. If you feel the effect of the listed plant, then you can safely apply it for several (up to 3-4) weeks.
If you have valerian (in tablets) in your medicine cabinet, then so that it has a really good effect, it is recommended that you take not 1-2 tablets at night, but several (3-4) at once about half an hour before your sleep. In this case, it is necessary to take into account the fact that on some people (again, due to individual characteristics), valerian acts as a pathogen. These people may try hop cones or melissa instead..
