With Daylight Saving Time starting this weekend (March 12), Michael Neeb, PhD, director of Mercy Health sleep services, encourages adults and children to be prepared to lose an hour of sleep when we “spring forward.”

The human circadian system, or the internal “human clock,” operates on chemical rhythms that tell your body when to sleep and when to be awake. These rhythms develop out of consistent schedules, and can be difficult to change. Even the one-hour change to Daylight Saving Time makes a noticeable, and sometimes difficult, transition for many people.

Neurontin (gabapentin) is an anti-convulsant medication used to treat nerve pain in adults. It is also used to treat seizures in adults and children who are at least 3 years old.

The U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists gabapentin as an appropriate non-opioid treatment for chronic pain. Gabapentin is a non-narcotic medication thought to have a low abuse profile.
