Drugs for treating people with sleepiness during shift work and sleep problems after shift work

People who work shifts often report sleepiness at work and problems with sleep between work shifts. This is called shift work sleep disorder when the difficulties with sleep after the night shift and sleepiness during the night shift are persistent. We evaluated the effect of drugs, such as melatonin, to improve shift workers' sleep quality after night shift work. We also examined the effect of drugs, such as caffeine, to help shift workers stay awake. We also wanted to evaluate cost‐effectiveness but there were no studies.
