Emma Madison has dealt with insomnia for years. She considers her condition as trivial, and she quickly handles the issue with pharmaceuticals instead of first addressing her sleep hygiene. Her doctor offers no suggestions of lifestyle changes that may help Emma. Instead, he prescribes Ambien, a common drug used to treat insomnia. She experiences initial success, but soon discovers that the drug's side effects will ultimately destroy her health.
