Staying Awake: Caffeine vs. Sleep Apnea Treatment

by

Waking up is hard to do; and the process is even harder if you’ve experienced poor or inadequate sleep. Unfortunately, sleep-deprived Americans tend to have trouble staying awake and energized throughout the day. To help those people who need the energy and ability to stay awake, there is a new product known as AeroShot.

By using AeroShot, consumers are able to inhale 100 milligrams of caffeine in a single puff, which is comparable to a large cup of coffee. While this product is obviously convenient if you’re desperately in need of energy to make it through the day; at the same time, it can do more harm than good.

Caffeine Isn’t Always a Safe Fix

Some research suggests that caffeine is comparable to nicotine in that both are extremely addictive and potentially harmful to our health. Obviously, drinking a cup of coffee or tea in the morning to wake up is generally considered safe; however, if you find that you are constantly depending on caffeine to make it through the day, you may have a serious underlying problem.

Whether you get caffeine from coffee, soda or the newest caffeine inhaler; the substance should not be your day-to-day method for making it through the day. Fatigue, drowsiness, a lack of energy and serious health problems are all commonly related to poor sleep. Poor sleep can be caused by simple things, such as your sleeping position, or more complex issues, such as sleep apnea.

If you depend on caffeine on a daily basis to stay and feel awake; you could have an undiagnosed sleep disorder that is causing you to feel tired and fatigued all the time. Now is time to learn more about sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea. Work with Dr. Berry to find the most effective sleep apnea treatment for you.
