Sleeping pills by prescription
Sleeping pills can help you go to sleep easier or stay asleep for longer — or both. Risks and benefits of sleeping pills can differ. To help you find the right one, your doctor may:
- Ask questions to get an understanding of your sleep patterns
- Schedule tests to rule out underlying conditions which may cause difficulty sleeping
- Go over options for taking prescription medication, including when and how often to take it, as pills, oral spray or tablets
- Prescribe a medicine for a limited period to determine benefits and side effects
- Let you try another option if the first doesn't work to your satisfaction
- Explain generic versions, which are less expensive than brand-name
Insurance companies may have restrictions on which medications are available under your plan.

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.
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.
