Types of prescription sleeping pills

Prescription sleeping pills may help you fall asleep easier or stay asleep longer — or both. The risks and benefits of various prescription sleeping pills can differ. To find the right prescription medication to help you sleep, your doctor may:
  • Ask you several questions to get a clear picture of your sleep patterns
  • Order tests to rule out any underlying conditions that may be causing difficulty sleeping
  • Discuss options for taking prescription sleeping medication, including how often and when to take it and in what form, such as pills, oral spray or dissolving tablets
  • Prescribe a sleeping pill for a limited period of time to determine the benefits and side effects for you
  • Have you try more than one prescription sleeping pill if the first medication you take doesn't work after the full prescribed course
  • Help you determine whether there is a generic version, which is typically less expensive than brand-name drugs
 Insurance companies may have restrictions on which sleeping pills are covered, and they may require that you try other approaches to your insomnia first.

What Are Sleeping Pills?

Many sleeping pills are classified "sedative hypnotics." This is a specific class of drugs used to maintain and/or induce sleep. Sedative hypnotics include various hypnotics such as benzodiazepines, barbiturates. Benzodiazepines are anti-anxiety medications, such as Xanax, Valium, Ativan, and Librium.

Sleep is a necessary human function. Lack of sleep leads to lack of concentration. The lack of night-time sleep or when you have too little sleep at night can cause daytime drowsiness. Mental alertness and eye-hand coordination are all related when it comes to sleep. If all else fails, a physician may prescribe sleeping pills.

What the Required 8 Hours or More Does for You

A lot of things happen during sleep. For one, it is a time for the body to rest. In children and adolescents, the body grows most during sleep. It also allows for the body to rest and for cells to repair themselves. For the mind, it allows a person to process information gathered during conscious waking hours. Research with students have also shown that the best way to understand a lesson is to study and read before going to bed. Simply put, the human body is more efficient after a good night’s sleep.

For a long time now, it has been proven that people are healthier when they are able to sleep for 8 hours a day on the average. As people grow older, they may require less sleep. However, sleep patterns for people fifty years old and older are different for sleeping patterns for younger people. They take more naps, and they sleep for a total of six hours daily.

When people could not get adequate sleep on a regular basis, problems start to develop. Besides the lack of concentration due to lack of sleep, people can also feel sluggish and drowsy. Micro-sleep can also occur. This occurs when a person sleeps for just a few seconds without being conscious about it. When people micro-sleep while driving a vehicle, they can cause accidents.

What are the need for these tablets

Insomnia occurs when a person does not get any sleep. Some insomniacs try to live with the condition. Others try home remedies like drinking milk, chocolate or chamomile tea. When these don’t work, they ask for a sleeping prescription from a doctor.

They should be taken only when prescribed. For one, it should not be taken daily. For another, you have to make sure that you drink the sleeping pill just before you sleep. It also means that a person should drink the pill at least 8 hours before he expects to wake up. Although they are not prescribed to be taken in the middle of the night, a recent survey showed that people still take the pills after midnight.

They are not bad for one’s health. It becomes addictive when people take it when they feel like. If they think that they can get some sleep, they don’t take the meds, only to decide to take one after a few hours tossing in bed. This is not a good practice and can lead to the worsening of insomnia symptoms.

Safety Concerns

Sleeping tablets such as Ambien/Zolpidem and Zopiclone can assist patients with sleep disorders and insomnia. These are prescription tablets that are given for short-term treatment. Ideally, a patient should not take these medicines for more than four weeks. This is to prevent the body from becoming dependent on a drug in order to sleep. When treatment stops, individuals may also experience withdrawal symptoms and have difficulty sleeping for a day or two. Patients can rest assured though, that things go back to normal after a few days.

Sleeping pills are also prescribed to people who are under a lot of stress and tension. It could be due to challenging circumstances, trauma, or the loss of a loved one. In these cases, the pills are prescribed only for a few days, just so the person can gets some sleep and rest.
