A Some persons get along on less sleep than others. So long as your daughter's weight is normal, she feels well and shows no signs of undue ner- vous tension, there is no need to worry. Q I am 50 and have had insomnia all my adult life. For two years I have been taking sleeping pills every night. Could they affect my heart or have any other bad effects? A Sleeping pills, including the barbiturates which are hab- it forming, will not affect your heart if taken in the usually prescribed dosage. Their chief disadvantage is that they in- terfere with the normal dream- ing everyone does. An e 1 e c t r i c sleep inducer, marketed in Germany and call- ed Dormed, consists of a set of electrodes fitted to a padded eye shield.

Q I am a poor sleeper and have taken Doridcn about twice a week for five years. Will 1 become addicted to it? Has it any bad side effects? A Glutethimide (Doriden) is not a barbiturate. Although it does not cause true addic- tion, it may cause psychic de- pendence. Its side effects in- clude nausea and blood dis- orders. Anyone taking the drug regularly should have periodic blood counts. Q I have heard that for sound sleep one's head must be at the south end of a bed in a north-south position. Is this true? A No. But persons who are disturbed by such superstitions might convince themselves that it is. Q _ what would cause a per- son to moan and groan in his sleep and what can be done to stop it? A This is a sign of exces- sive worry or undue nervous fatigue. The victim is usually helped by avoiding such excite- ment as violent TV shows or reading horror stories before retiring or by getting to bed be- fore he becomes so tired he can't keep his eyes open.
