It is estimated that 40 million Americans suffer chronic sleep problems…from insomnia and sleep apnea to narcolepsy and sleep walking. The consequences are devastating: impaired judgement, slower reflexes, fatigue, reduced immunity, etc. During this show we will try to find out why we need sleep and why we dream. We will talk with two of the country’s leading sleep researchers about insomnia, narcolepsy, fibromyalgia, nightmares, sleep apnea, night terrors and sleepwalking. There is a new sleeping pill called Lunesta. We will find out how effective it is and how long you can you use it. Guests: Martin Scharf, Ph.D. is a leader in clinic and research technologies for sleep and it’s disorders . He founded the Tri-State Sleep Disorders Center, based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Andrew Krystal, MD, is the Director of the Sleep Research Laboratory and Insomnia Program, and an Associate Professor at the Duke University Medical Center.
