Welcome To HCM. The Medicines Your Mother Is Taking Can Produce Good Sleep. Even For Some People Single Tablet Is Enough. Do Consult With Sleep Theparist As All These Medicine Cause Addiction And Had Serious Side Effect. Ask Her To Read Novel Play Puzzel Game, Do Some Exercise. Take Warm Shower In Cold Weather. Massage, These Things Will Sure Help. Do Consult With Neurologist Too. Be Safe And Healthy. Bye.
