Is Sleep a sleeping pill?
No, Sleep is a combination of nutrients and herbs specially formulated to reduce insomnia, wakefulness and restlessness, and can help improve the quality of sleep experienced. Prescription sedatives and tranquilizers (sleeping pills) should not be used regularly, as they cause many undesirable side effects. They can also be addictive (habit-forming) and lead to tolerance (requiring higher dosages over time to be effective). Sleep can be taken regularly to aid your body when falling asleep.
Do I need a prescription for Sleep?
Sleep is a nutritional supplement that is sold in pharmacies and supplement stores and it does not require a prescription.
How does Sleep work? How does it make me catch more sleep?
Sleep is formulated to reduce stress and anxiety, easing your mind and body as you get ready for sleep. Sleep calms your central nervous system by promoting healthy levels of serotonin (through 5-HTP) and Melatonin signals the body that it is time for rest – allowing for you to go into a deep, relaxing sleep.
Will Sleep give me immediate results?
As with any dietary supplement, individual results may vary, however many have reported improved relaxation and sleep the very first night of taking Sleep. femMED Sleep promotes a healthy sleep pattern, which is developed over time. Sleep’s effects are typically experienced after several days of taking Sleep, with maximum benefits resulting after one week of use.
Is Sleep safe to take over a prolonged period of time?
Based on historical data, the ingredients in Sleep are well tolerated when used occasionally or intermittently for an extended period of time. You should consult your doctor if you do not experience improved sleep after one month of taking Sleep.
Can Sleep be taken with other medications?
Sleep should not be taken with sedatives, barbiturates, anti-depressants, additional sleep aid medication or herbal sedatives. Do not use this product in combination with femMED Energy. As with any dietary supplement, if you are taking any prescription drugs or any over-the-counter products, please check with your physician first before using Sleep.

What do you mean by “products are complementary”?
All of our products have been designed for women only, and during the development process, we were careful to ensure that our products could be used together. Therefore a woman needing support for her menopause symptoms, breast health and prevention of osteoporosis, for example, can use 3 femMED products together – Menopause Relief, Breast Health and Bone Health without worrying about contraindications. The only 2 products that should not be used together are our Sleep and Energy formulas.
Why do you use vegetable capsules instead of gel capsules?
We set out to create the highest quality solutions in the marketplace today. We were very much against the use of gel caps because of the process by which they are manufactured. Gel caps are derived from primarily pig and bovine skin and bones. Gel caps are commonplace in the supplement and pharmaceutical markets, but as a company, we believe that vegetable caps are the better choice.
What are additives?
When it comes to choosing a nutritional supplement what is NOT in the product is just as important as what is. Be sure to carefully examine the NON-MEDICINAL ingredients, sometimes called excipients or additives. Many popular brands contain fillers, preservatives, glazes, sweeteners, artificial colors, binders, deodorizers, chemicals and potential allergens, such as lactose, gluten, dyes and gelatin. Some products include chemicals like titanium dioxide and sodium benzoate, which can be associated with significant health risks. So it is important to read the label carefully before you buy.
femMED offers a range of top quality nutritional supplements designed specifically for women that are free of these undesirable additives.
