Although medication for anxiety and sleep issues such as Xanax and Stilnox can quickly assist people in reclaiming precious hours of sleep when they need them most, these medications come with the risk of developing dependency and addiction.
A psychologist can help you with issues surrounding sleep, anxiety/stress/depression, and pharmaceutical dependency.
Dependency on medication is an unworkable control strategy for maintaining sleep as it can lead to increased health problems and psychological symptoms, affecting one’s relationships and work. Therefore it is important to maintain control over the use of medication by developing psychological and behavioural techniques to improve sleep, with the end goal being to reduce or eliminate the need for medication.
