Best RX: PartnerMD Concierge Physician

Dr. Laura M. Beaty from PartnerMD Concierge Physician answers a reader’s question about how much sleep we really need. Dr. Laura Beaty Q: How much sleep do I need?  A: While sleep needs vary, most adults require between seven and nine hours to perform their best each day. Not getting enough sleep can mimic symptoms of ADD. You will notice that your ability to concentrate and remember information is dramatically reduced. This will decrease your productivity in whatever you try to accomplish. Over time, as your sleep debt  accumulates, you also increase your risk for heart disease and motor vehicle accidents.
