Sleep Hack: 3rd of 4 Reasons For Sleeping Problems

Your Meds May Be the Cause of Sleeplessness

Some medications can cause nighttime waking. Examples include

  • some antidepressants
  • beta blockers to treat high blood pressure
  • cold remedies containing alcohol
  • corticosteroids to treat inflammation or asthma

Dr. Bertisch recommends asking your doctor if your medication might be the culprit and if there’s a different time of day to take it or another drug that won’t interfere with your sleep.
