Can sleeping tablets help me sleep?

Some people with severe insomnia may find it helpful to take sleeping tablets for a few nights. Sleeping tablets are habit forming and can be addictive, however, and can also affect the quality of your sleep. Many people feel groggy and have difficulty focusing the next day after taking a sleeping tablet. Addressing any problems which may be affecting your ability to sleep and improving your sleeping habits are much more effective in having a long-term impact on how you sleep.
