In an ABC news report, Dr David Ray of the University of Manchester discusses how different medications can impact sleep.
Drugs like the caffeine in your cappuccino and other stimulants like those found in cold and flu pills are widely known for their effect on sleep.
But there’s a range of other drugs that can impact sleep in ways you might not be aware of.
According to David Ray, Professor of Medicine and Endocrinology at the University of Manchester, there is still much for the experts to learn when it comes to the science of how medications interact with sleep.
Dr Ray believes the delivery of many medicines will one day be tailored to the timing of an individual’s body clock, in a bid to get the most from specific drugs.
