Sleep Aids

Modafinil has become the premier cognitive enhancer due to its ability to safely yet powerfully boost focus, motivation, and wakefulness. First approved in 1998 for narcolepsy, modafinil works by stimulating histamine release and blocking reuptake of dopamine and norepinephrine.

Multiple studies confirm modafinil enhances working memory, logical reasoning, and task-switching ability. It's popular among students, entrepreneurs, and biohackers seeking an edge.

Trouble sleeping can seriously impact your quality of life. The Canada Pharmacy offers both prescription and over-the-counter sleep aids to help you get the rest you need.

Types of Sleep Aids

There are several classes of sleep medications that work in different ways:

  • Benzodiazepines – Fast-acting sedatives like Triazolam that help initiate sleep.
  • Non-benzodiazepines – Similar to benzodiazepines but less habit-forming. Examples are Zolpidem and Eszopiclone.
  • Melatonin receptor agonists – Regulate sleep cycles without risk of dependence. Ramelteon is one example.
  • OTC antihistamines – Common allergy medications like Diphenhydramine that cause drowsiness.
  • Prescription antidepressants – Some like Trazodone are prescribed off-label for insomnia.
  • OTC sleep aids – Contain antihistamines or supplements like melatonin and valerian root.

Choosing a Sleep Medication

Consider the following when selecting a sleep aid:

  • Cause of your insomnia (trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, etc.)
  • Preference for prescription vs. OTC
  • Desire to avoid dependence or tolerance
  • Other medications or health conditions

Discuss options with your doctor to find the right sleep medication for your needs. We offer access to online consultations.

Proper Sleep Aid Use

To use sleep medications properly:

  • Take only as directed by your doctor
  • Don’t exceed dosage or prescribed length of use
  • Don’t combine with other sedatives without medical approval
