Nervous and restless
Those who have had a bad night's sleep, are constantly nervous and restless usually ask the pharmacist for advice first and seek quick help for the complaints. PTA-Forum has compiled the most important vocabulary, questions and advice on the subject of "nervous restlessness".
More and more people find it hard to cope with the hectic pace of everyday life. No wonder that many complain about nervous restlessness, insomnia, anxiety and depressive moods. People travelling on business are often confronted with even greater pressure. On top of the deadline pressure and the stress of meetings there is also the time shift and lack of sleep. Usually there is no time for relaxation and recovery phases.
If insomnia and tension become a daily problem, many of those concerned go and seek advice at the pharmacy first. Some herbal medicines and homeopathic combination remedies ensure that those concerned feel calmer. Before any medicine can be recommended, PTA or the pharmacist needs to ask some questions and clarify if self-medication can be responsibly commended or if it would be more advisable to see the doctor.
