Hello Doctor,

 

Do sleeping pills help with sleeping through the night and blocking out loud noises like hard footsteps from an upstairs neighbor?

 

Hello,

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

 

While sleeping pills may help reduce your sensitivity to noise disturbances during sleep, their primary purpose is to assist individuals struggling with insomnia by inducing sleep. To effectively block out loud noises like hard footsteps from an upstairs neighbor, you may consider using noise-canceling headphones or other sound-masking devices. These can help lessen distractions and promote better sleep quality.

 

Thanks
