Medications & Conditions
Don’t: Take certain medications before bedtime. Many over-the-counter pain medications contain a hefty dose of caffeine—as much as a cup of coffee! Certain asthma medications, migraine and cold preparations, and antidepressants may also contribute to sleeplessness.
Do: Get evaluated and/or treated for restless legs syndrome (RLS). The name of this common sleep disorder refers to the "creepy, crawly" sensation in a sufferer's legs, which causes an urge to move and makes it difficult to get to sleep.
