Program Title: The Med Thread - Ep. 1 - Insomnia: We're Getting Sleepy
Description: Greeks and Egyptians developed sleeping potions using the opium poppy — the same potion that put Dorothy to sleep in The Wizard of Oz. European apothecaries in the Middle Ages stocked spongia somnifera, a medieval anesthesia soaked in wine and herbs. Today, Z-drugs are among the most popular sleep remedies. Join co-hosts Mike Chong and Dr. Cathy Balsom of the School of Pharmacy's Medication Therapy Services (MTS) Clinic will discuss sleep therapies through the ages, right up until today.
