    I started experiencing sleep issues about a decade ago (I'm 62 now), and after this course now realize a number of things I'm doing to contribute to the problem. I'm excited to try out some of the treatment recommendations outlined in this presentation. Thank you for providing this as a free resource to the public. Your method of presenting is very clear and relatable, no matter what your educational background.

    PEET DE VILLIERS, Pharmacist

    Excellent overview. Clearly explained. Can you please consider adding a section on how to approach, and treat, patients that have chronic insomnia and have been on sleep medication (e.g. benzodiazepines, non-benzodiazepines) long-term. They often do not sleep well due to tolerance that developed to these medications, but it is very difficult to discontinue the sleep medication due to rebound insomnia which makes their situation worse. How do you deal with these patients?
