A recent poll found that one in four teens use over-the-counter pills and prescriptions to help them sleep, reports USA Today.
The C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health found that 28 percent of teens ages 13-18 tried some type of medication to help them sleep. “A big part of this is that people don’t realize this is a topic they should bring up with their doctor. If doctors don’t think to ask about it, then it’s not addressed,” said Sarah Clark, co-director of the poll.
