Q: I'm undergoing chemo, and though I am experiencing heavy-duty fatigue, I am also suffering from insomnia! Sometimes it's hard to fall asleep; other nights I wake up around 3 a.m. for an hour or two. My medical oncologist said chemo can disrupt the sleep-wake cycle and prescribed Ambien. I don't like the idea of relying on a sleeping pill. Anything else I can do?
Answer from Miles Hassell, M.D., director of Providence Integrative Medicine at Providence Cancer Center:
Skin problems aren’t always just skin deep. They can affect our comfort, our health, our appearance and our confidence. Any time a dermatologist can help find a solution, it makes for a very happy patient. But three dermatology services, in particular, lead to especially grateful patients.
