Great Britain, it seems, is a profoundly restless country, according to an international group of scientists. According to their findings, more than 33 percent of British people suffer from acute insomnia every year.
In addition to tiredness, Mayo Clinic lists symptoms of insomnia as irritability, depression or anxiety, difficulty paying attention, tension headaches, and gastrointestinal symptoms. Individuals coping with depression could buy Effexor from Canadian and international online pharmacies, or possibly buy Paxil if they're dealing with depression and anxiety problems.
“The information our research has provided gives us a first indication of the scale and scope of the problem. Our next step will be to explore the factors that can cause or prevent the transition from acute to chronic insomnia,” said Jason Ellis, director of the Northumbria Centre for Sleep Research.
American, Canadian, and Scottish researchers compiled information on sleeping habits of people who regularly get a good night's sleep and individuals with acute insomnia, or difficulties sleeping for less than three months. Sleeping problems persisting for longer than three months are categorized as chronic insomnia. The long-term purpose of these sleep studies, said Ellis, is to find a way to halt the transition from acute to chronic insomnia.

It advises against keeping electronic devices near beds, keeping bedrooms excessively warm, and drinking beverages immediately before sleep, but encourage people to buy comfortable blankets and mattresses.
