I never take pharmaceuticals unless they are prescribed by a doctor. If I need pills to sleep, then I need to be awake more than I need to sleep.
When I get a cold, I will only take medicine if I am literally on the verge of hospitalising myself.
My body, it's not a temple, but it is a fortress, and I find the idea of medicating myself for anything less than a developing serious condition, to
be as helpful as a fire under the foundations used to be to medieval fortifications!
However, I will meditate for a while if I do not sleep, that way at least my mind will rest, and that will have a percentage knock on affect on my
alertness tomorrow, which will be somewhat better than a total lack of sleep.
