News channel WPXI published an article regarding how sleeping pills really work and if it is mainly due to the placebo effect. Online Bed Quilt, a leading mattress retailer, said sleeping pills could lead to health problems or addiction, and should not be used as an easy cure for insomnia.

On December 28, expert mattress retailer Online Bed Quilt offered an opinion on an article published by WPXI with regard to a study determining if sleeping pills really work or if it’s more of a placebo effect.

According to the study discussed in the http://WPXI article, scientists from the University of Lincoln (U.K.), Harvard University and the University of Connecticut found that sleeping pills do help users fall asleep faster. The study, which was published in the [British Medical Journal (BMJ), used data from 13 trials administered pharmaceutical companies and sent to the FDA. It studied the effects of Lunesta, Sonata and Ambien. The scientists found that the subjects who took sleeping aids fell asleep 22 minutes faster than those who only took a placebo.

Justin Maas, a representative from leading mattress retailer Online Bed Quilt said there are other ways to treat insomnia. “Resorting to sleeping pills is not the best thing for people,” he said. “Most people want a quick fix and believe sleeping pills can just easily cure the problem, but is it really good to take a sleeping pill every day for the rest of your life? Of course not. Sleeping pills are a serious risk to your health. Your mattress plays a big part in how well you sleep every night. If you have insomnia, it could be because you need a new mattress.

Maas said most people are unaware that their [mattress is not right for their body type. “Our bodies are constantly changing,” he said. “A mattress from 10 years ago could be completely wrong for your current body type and it might be the reason why you have problems sleeping. People just assume they have insomnia without even considering the surface they are sleeping on. It’s important to check your mattress before you resort to taking sleep aids. A good mattress can give you a better night’s sleep and even improve your health.”
