Sleeping Tablets

UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain Sleep Tablets. Below is what he has to say.

Around one in three people suffer from mild insomnia. The consequences of insomnia can be serious, increasing your risks of diabetes, obesity, depression, heart attack and even stroke. Insomnia can be a symptom of other ailments. If you are experiencing depression, anxiety or chronic pain, its not difficult to see how this can cause a lack of sleep.

While over the counter sleep medicine can be helpful, most of them are based on antihistamines, and these can become less effective the more you take them. In each case, different medications may be more effective than sleeping pills in resolving the underlying cause of your insomnia. Consult with your doctor to determine the best treatment for your specific situation.

UK Meds offers prescription strength medication, such as zolpidem and zopiclone which can break the cycle of insomnia into a more routine pattern of sleep. A prescription is required for these medicines, and there are potential side effects, including daytime drowsiness, dizziness and potential addiction. If you feel that you need stronger prescription pain medicine, but you don't have a prescription, the UK Meds online doctor service can assist you in obtaining one.

What are Sleeping Tablets?

There are several different types of prescription sleeping pills, classified as sedative hypnotics. In general, these medications act by working on receptors in the brain to slow down the nervous system. Some medications are used more for inducing sleep, while others are used for staying asleep. An example is Ambien, the branded version of generic Zolpidem.

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

Prescription sleep medication options include the following.

Types of prescription sleeping pills

These may help you fall asleep easier or stay asleep longer — or both. The risks and benefits 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 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 types are covered, and they may require that you try other approaches to your insomnia first.

Rest is a necessary human function. Lack of this process leads to lack of concentration. When you have too little repose 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 them.

What the Required 8 Hours or More Does for You

A lot of things happen as you rest. For one, it is a time for the body to rest. In children and adolescents, the body grows most during rest. 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 repose. However, rest 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 rest, people can also feel sluggish and drowsy. Micro-sleep can also occur. This occurs when a person rests 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 repose. 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 medication 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

Prescribed Ambien/Zolpidem and Zopiclone can assist patients with 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 rest. When treatment stops, individuals may also experience withdrawal symptoms and have difficulty resting for a day or two. Patients can rest assured though, that things go back to normal after a few days.

Sleep aids like Ambien 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 rest.
