What is the best time to sleep for a teen who wakes up at 4 in the morning?

Why 4am?: If your teen must arise at that hour for some reason, the bedtime revolves around stage of growth/development to get adequate rest. A 14yo(growth spirt) may need 10 hrs while a 16 yo may get by on 8.Any less is trouble. If the kid awakens at 4 & can't get back to desired sleep, you should discuss the issue with your dr.Falling asleep during routein daily activities is a sign of inadequate sleep. ...Read more

I just started working 12am-8am i'm having trouble adjusting. When would be the best time to sleep and eat? And how often should I eat? I need tips!

Same basic schedule: Just as you probably did before starting shift work, you likely had an hour or two of quieter time that prepared your body and mind for sleep. This may have included a snack as well. You should follow the same general pattern with one important new practice. You should completely avoid exposure to the natural morning sunlight (sunglasses). Have a small meal. Unwind for an hour then get to bed. ...Read more

I take mirtazapine 15mg and Ambien (zolpidem) 10mg at bed time to sleep i was wondering if i desided to stop taking it what would be the best way to do so ?

I take mirtazapine 15mg and Ambien (zolpidem) 10mg at bed time to sleep i was wondering if i desided to stop taking it what would be the best way to do so ?

Stop which one ?: First of all, Mirtazapine is an antidepressant . Don't stop taking it without discussing with your prescribing md. That said, if you are taking Mirtazapine you should sleep well enough that you would not need the ambien (zolpidem). So i will assume you want to go off ambien (zolpidem). Taper it. Lower it to 1/2 tab and see if you still sleep ok, then 1/4 tab, and if ok, then stop. ...Read more

When is the best time to check your heart rate? When going to sleep and when i first wake up in the morning it's lower. During the day it's higher.

Healthy Hearts: Heart rates vary from moment to moment and from activity to activity. I know of no reason for a young man to be checking his heart rate repeatedly throughout the day and see nothing of concern about this in your health history on your profile. ...Read more

I am 16 years old. What is the recommended time to sleep and wake up? I find myself dosing off after i wake up from sleeping 7h. I sleep 11pm to 6am.

Variable: Kids that are still growing or have heavy study schedules or both need a minimum of 9 hours. Extra activities like sports can add to the requirement. After growth stops and schedule lessens, most can get by on 8. Memory difficulty, diminished academic or athletic performance or drowsy periods during the day suggest the need for more sleep. ...Read more
