ATLANTA, GA – A new study by the CDC shows that nearly 9 million U.S. adults turn to prescription sleeping pills.

The study was based on interviews with about 17,000 adults between 2005 – 2010.

Apparently the group that`s used sleeping pills the most are white, educated women 50 or older. But that`s only part of the picture. Many turn to over-the-counter type of stuff or chamomile tea.

Seems like Americans are finding anyway to find Mr. Sandman.
