Grandma's birth control pills

The doctor who had been seeing an 80-year-old woman for most of her life finally retired.
At her next checkup, the new doctor told her to bring a list of all the medicines that had been prescribed for her.
As the young doctor was looking through these, his eyes grew wide as he realized she had a prescription for birth control pills.
"Mrs. Smith, do you know these are BIRTH CONTROL pills?" He asked her.
"Yes, they help me sleep at night." She answered.
"Mrs. Smith, I assure you there is absolutely NOTHING in these that could possibly help you sleep!" the doctor said.
She reached out and patted the young Doctor's knee. "Yes dear, I know that. But every morning I grind one up and mix it in the glass of orange juice that my 16 year old granddaughter drinks and believe you me, it helps me sleep at night." You gotta love Grandmas!
