Drugs & Medication
Prescribed drugs and medications for Somniphobia are, we believe, a poor substitute for an approach that gets to the core of the fear. (That said, please always follow a doctors advice with any meds).
The root cause of being Somniphobic is an unconscious mental association that links sleep to powerful feelings of fear. Meds can mask that link, but can never break it. (That’s what we help you do).
