    The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) recognizes that while everyone sleeps, not everyone sleeps well. Each night more than 70 million Americans who suffer from a sleep disorder struggle to get a good night of sleep. Frustrated and tired, they are constantly in search of reliable information about sleep disorders and treatments. The AASM launched Sleepeducation.com in March of 2005 to address this rapidly growing demand for information about sleep.

    This Web site is designed to be a valuable tool for patients and members of the public who are seeking dependable information related to sleep, sleep disorders, treatments and services. Although the processes of sleep and its workings in the body are quite complex, the goal of this site is to present accurate, scientific information in a concise manner that is easy to understand.

    The AASM was originally formed as the Association of Sleep Disorders Centers in 1975. Today, the AASM is the premiere professional medical society for clinicians, researchers, students and other health care providers in the field of sleep medicine. Sleep medicine is a recognized medical specialty that is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of patients with disorders of sleep and daytime alertness.

    Dedicated to the advancement of sleep medicine and related research, the AASM’s mission is to assure quality care for patients with sleep disorders, to promote the advancement of sleep research and to provide public and professional education.

    As the national accrediting body for sleep disorders centers and laboratories, the AASM is the leading voice promoting the highest quality of care for patients with sleep problems. The first sleep center was accredited in 1977. Now there are more than 1,000 centers and labs accredited by the AASM that are providing trusted medical assistance in communities all across the country.

    The AASM also holds a seat in the American Medical Association’s House of Delegates and is an accredited sponsor of continuing medical education courses for physicians. In order to promote new research in sleep science, the AASM founded the American Sleep Medicine Foundation to provide research grants to investigators and educators. New discoveries and advances from throughout the scientific community are spread broadly through the AASM’s peer-reviewed Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, as well as through the journal SLEEP, a joint publication of the AASM and the Sleep Research Society.

    As an advocate for physicians, patients, and the general public, the AASM is advancing sleep medicine and improving health.

    You might get a more helpful response if you post this in an appropriate thread, or start a new thread. But yes, all sleeping medications, both prescription and over the counter, have side effects.
