Ask Dr. Taz MD October 6, 2014

Dear Dr. Taz,
What sort of ongoing support would you suggest for nurses (and others) who work night shift and are awake several nights each week?

Dr Tasneem Bhatia MDAnswer: 
Unfortunately, this is really tough on a female body. I feel for you. Try to batch your shifts or spread out to 1 per week if you can. Also, you can take melatonin to help with shifts in sleep cycle, and high dose b vitamins and many need hormonal support like bioidentical progesterone. We have a great b vitamin blend called Natural Boost that you may want to try. Please make sure your hormones are monitored and checked every 6 mos.
