Risks of over-the-counter sleeping pills
NORTH KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The month of May is Better Sleep Month.
Many people who have trouble sleeping turn to over-the-counter sleeping pills. But a doctor at North Kansas City hospital says products that contain diphenhydramine or doxylamine have risks that include mental impairment the following day.
Dr. Todd Hill talked with FOX 4 Medical Reporter Meryl Lin McKean about those pills and about melatonin and valerian as sleep aids.
