Why do I wake up after just two hours sleep?

Many causes: I totally agree with dr. Villaplana. Depression can definitely do that.

When it's recommended that people get eight hours of sleep, is that supposed to be uninterrupted sleep? I wake two or three times a night. Thx.

No: Most people don't sleep a full eight hours without interruption, especially after age 50. Waking to urinate is very common, especially in men due to prostate enlargement; but it is also common in women. Some awakenings are caused by pain, if this is the case, a dose of Acetaminophen at bedtime may make this less likely. If you fall asleep quickly after you wake, no problem. ...Read more
