CASE 2 – CNS disorders
Ms M. is a 29 year old woman who does nightshift at a 24 hour convenience store. She comes in the pharmacy and tells you that she is unable to fall asleep after returning home from work in the morning. As a result she feels quite drowsy and sluggish as she is beginning her shift each night and midway through her shift she sometimes wishes she could take a nap. She has used temazepam in the past but felt that she still felt a bit “sluggish” when she got up to go to work. She would like you to recommend a herbal “all natural” treatment for her insomnia.
