Patient Profile

by Chris Brannon, RN, BSN

Having trouble sleeping? This problem is one shared by one of our Riordan Clinic patients. A female patient came to the Riordan Clinic with irregular sleeping patterns. Most of the time, it was difficult for this individual to fall asleep. Once she finally did, she found herself waking every few hours. After several months of this exhaustive pattern, she came to us for help and was given supplemental melatonin to try.

A period of trial and error ensued, and a month later she was able to find the effective dose. Via a sublingual tablet or spray, she mastered getting to sleep and waking fully rested.

Regular sleeping patterns play an important long term role in eliminating certain health problems, including sleep disorders, depression, bipolar disorder, and seasonal affective disorder.

This patient’s story is a great example of the exceptional care you will receive at the Riordan Clinic. To find out more or to make an appointment, call 316-682-3100 to start your journey to a healthier you.
