A doctor must be consulted if an individual is having problems falling or staying asleep (insomnia). The kind of medication and treatment that the doctor will prescribe depends on the cause of patient’s insomnia. Regular exercise, keeping stress in check, sleeping at a scheduled time and avoiding daytime naps and caffeine may also be suggested by the doctor along with the medication to treat insomnia. Though sleep aiding drugs may help in getting the patient some much needed rest, they do not treat the underlying cause of the patient’s sleeping problems.
Sleeping pills belong to 2 classes: benzodiazepines and non- benzodiazepines. Benzodiazepine sedative like Flurazepam, Triazolam, Temazepam etc. slows down the nervous system (central nervous system depressants).
Safest and most efficient medication for insomnia
(None of the medication mentioned should be consumed without the prescription of a well-qualified doctor)
Zolpidem (Ambien): Ambien comes under the Benzodiazepines class and is considered as the best treatment for insomnia and is available in both spray and pill versions online. This is one of the main reasons for people buying generic Ambien online. Ambien serves as a short-term management for those who find it difficult to fall asleep and long term for those who find it cumbersome to stay asleep/fall asleep. Ambien not only helps in improving the sleep pattern of the patient but also the quality of his sleep. It also helps the patient in enjoying uninterrupted sleep for a longer time.
Ambien proves its efficiency by helping the patient fall asleep within fifteen to thirty minutes of consumption and staying asleep for a longer period and decreases awakenings at nighttime. Zolpidem should not be taken if the patient does not have time for a full night’s sleep (seven to eight hours). It is best to consume Ambien on an empty stomach (before bed) for optimum results, or after food if the doctor advises otherwise.
Important information about Ambien.
Ambien is prescribed and only to be consumed by adults and should be stored away from moisture and direct sunlight. Medical condition, gender, age, response to treatment and alternative medications taken by the patient and the form it is taken in (pills/ spray) are important factors that affect the dosage recommended by the doctor. It is crucial for the patient to remember that changing or increasing the duration of the ambien dosage without the doctor’s advice can lead to severe side effects. The consumption of more than ten milligrams of Ambien a day will lead to overdose so going more than prescribed dosage it should be avoided.
Older adults and women are prescribed a lower dosage to reduce side effects. Waking up before 7-8 hours after consumption of Ambien results in decreased memory, alertness, and concentration making it difficult for the patient to operate heavy machinery and drive. Sudden discontinuation of Ambien during long-term usage of the drug can lead to severe withdrawal symptoms like nausea, nervousness, shakiness, stomach cramps etc. and so it is advised to never discontinue or start the medication without the doctor’s consent.
