I have been having problems getting a full night sleep for the last month. I have no problem falling asleep but I wake up around three or four am and cannot go back to sleep. This situation is due to one of my co-workers leaving our department and me having to do their job until their replacement is hired. Then I start to worry about me having another heart attack due to the stress of not sleeping enough.
I have an appointment with my cardiologist later this week to see if I should use sleeping pills for the time being or if it safer for me just to go without a full nights sleep. Has anyone here used or are currently using any sleeping pills? If yes, could you please name the medication and advise your experience with it. Thank you.
