In brief: Whaaaa?

Sleeping mask ensures dark environment for sleep, to eliminate major "zeitgeiber" (bringer of the day) that triggers brain to release "wake-up" hormones.
Med effect from sleeping meds just sedates brain (/body) to make it easier to get to / stay asleep. Day sleepers average less total sleep & poorer health than "normal" folks, so help them out and let them sleep.
