13 year olds on sleeping pills in Denmark

Why in the heavens name would a 13 year old not be able to sleep? Mine slept like logs at that age, but of course they were boys, and there were No Mobiles then. But please chew on it and observe if your teenagers are doing the same.

Best regards.

The article:

A new study shows a disturbing high medicine use by 13-15 year olds in Odense, Denmark. Up to 9% of the teenagers have used sleeping pills within the last month. 13 year old schoolgirls regularly use sleeping pills. This is the fact in Odense, exposed by a new City Council queastionaire study of 7. – 9 grade students in Odense, the Capital City of Fyn.

Up to 9% of the students, in the study group, answered yes to have used medicine against sleeplessness within the last month. The biggest users were 13 year old school girls.

We are chocked over that such a large number of the students have used this kind of medicine, says the health consultant at Odense Council, Mette Ladegaard.

The study was a questionnaire survey, which was answered by over 4000 students.

I think it is deeply worrying if the sleeping pills have been prescribed to the child by its own GP.

But it is even more worrying if the medicine has been prescribed to the parents, and they in turn give it to their children, says Mette Ladegaard.
