Everyone experiences difficulty sleeping now and then, and the occasional occurrence of sleeplessness is nothing to be too concerned about. Insomnia describes the chronic sleep deprivation which is a disorder that is experienced by roughly one third of the UK population. Someone that is unable to get to sleep, or to stay asleep for enough time to recharge properly, on a regular basis, is said to have insomnia.
If you lay awake at night and find it hard to get to sleep, wake up several times during the night, or wake up still feeling tired on a regular basis, then you have insomnia. The physical and psychological effects of insomnia have been studied closely for years and the findings emphasize the direct connection between the sleep disorder insomnia, and more serious mental health disorder such as anxiety and depression.
Research shows that when people suffer from chronic sleep deprivation for extended periods of time they are twice as likely to develop anxiety symptoms.
Research shows that when people suffer from chronic anxiety for extended periods of time they are twice as likely to develop symptoms of depression.
Research shows that people who suffer from chronic depression for extended periods of time are twice as likely to develop symptoms of Insomnia.
Insomnia can present itself in various forms and can have a multitude of different causes. Before you can successfully treat / cure insomnia you will first need to identify the underlying cause(s). After identifying what is causing your insomnia, a doctor may prescribe sleeping tablets to help you correct your sleeping pattern. Doctors will generally also advise that for best results, patients should combine the use of sleeping tablets with cognitive bahavioural therapy, also called CBT-i. Cognitive bahavioural therapy focuses on lifestyle and attitude changes that can also contribute towards getting a healthy night's sleep.
If you, or someone in your family, are experiencing chronic sleep deprivation then it is advised that you get treatment before your insomnia develops into more serious mental health problems such as anxiety or depression.
If you are unsure if you have insomnia then there are a few simple steps that you should take first. To determine if you have insomnia you can visit your doctor, or book an appointment with an online doctor, or take an online insomnia test. More information on the different types of insomnia is outlined below for your convenience.
There are generally two types of insomnia - primary and secondary.
Primary insomnia is not associated with a pre-existing health disorder but secondary insomnia is easily linked to other underlying health reasons such as anxiety, depression, pain, and even alcohol or substance abuse.
Both primary and secondary insomnia have the same effects on patients which range from acute to chronic in nature, and include symptoms such as not being able to fall asleep at night, to waking up during the night frequently, or waking up too early and not being able to get back to sleep.
|Short Term Insomnia:||This is the most common type of insomnia that basically everyone will experience at one time or another. It is also known as acute insomnia or adjustment insomnia as it is only a brief period of difficulty sleeping that is directly connected to a stressful life event like the excitement of a job interview or fear of flying the next day.
This type of insomnia causes very little disturbance to daily life and usually passes on its own once the patient has adjusted to the situation mentally, without the need for therapy or medication.
|Long Term Insomnia:||Also called chronic insomnia; this is when people experience difficulty sleeping on a regular basis. Chronic insomnia is much more serious as it is generally caused by physical aspects such as pain from an underlying medical condition, or psychological aspects such as persistent nightmares and mental health conditions like anxiety and depression.
To cure insomnia of this kind, the exact underlying cause needs to be identified and corrected. Identifying the exact cause of chronic insomnia that is the result of a psychological issue may take some time and in cases like this a pharmacist, or a doctor may prescribe medicine to aid sleep.
|Causes of Insomnia:||Sleeping problems can be traced to an almost endless list of contributing factors such as financial problems, a sudden death in the family, a problem at work, or due to bouts of anxiety.
Just as easily, insomnia can be the result of an accident where pain is hindering one's ability to get a peaceful night's sleep, or a change in shift at work that has knocked your body clock off balance.
While we do not know for sure exactly what causes insomnia, we do know that insomnia is experienced by both men and women, of all age groups, and that insomnia affects a higher number of women than men.
There are lots of ways to promote sleep naturally and it is always advisable to explore and exhaust these avenues before deciding to buy sleeping pills online.
Some of the best natural sleep remedies are some of the easiest too! Simple lifestyle habits like maintaining a healthy diet and exercise schedule can make all the difference when it comes to drifting off to sleep at bed-time.
Try taking a hot bath before sleeping and sticking to a strict bedtime schedule, as this helps train the body to expect sleep at a certain time. Also, try sleeping in a bedroom free of blue light from TV's, laptops and other distracting mobile devices.
If making lifestyle changes have not worked, a doctor may recommend Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBTi) for insomnia, which teaches patients how to learn good habits that help to promote a good night's sleep. CBTi sessions can be conducted in groups or on a private, one-on-one basis, and good habits that help to improve sleep hygiene include limiting the bedroom to two activities only, namely sleep and sex.
While CBTi for insomnia is proven to help educate people to sleep better, it has some downsides, with the main one being - it is not a quick fix. For this reason, doctors will usually suggest a combination of CBTi and medication, as these two methods together have been found to be the best way to cure insomnia quickly, and prevent rebound insomnia.
Sleeping tablets are a specially designed medication that helps make patients feel sleepy, and fall asleep quickly. Some sleeping tablets can also help patients stay asleep for a period of 6 to 8 hours - allowing people that are suffering from insomnia sufficient time to rest, repair and recharge.
When it comes to sleeping pills in the UK patients are fortunate to have direct online access to a number of medications to aid sleep and cure insomnia. While the each have a slightly different chemical compound, they each work in a similar way on the brain to promote a calming feeling and aid sleep.
Medications used to aid sleep are generally highly addictive due to their unique chemical compound, the increased feeling of calm and relaxation they provide, and how effortlessly they enable patients to fall asleep while using them.
For this reason, sleeping tablets are generally not prescribed for extended periods of time (not exceeding 2 - 4 weeks). Inside this time patients are generally able to get enough hours sleep to correct and restore a natural, healthy sleep-wake pattern.
When it comes to types of sleeping tablets in the UK, customers are again fortunate to have a good selection of medication to choose from!
The two main types of sleeping tablets are:
|Benzodiazepines:||The most widely used, and oldest medication from this class of drug is Valium (active ingredient diazepam). Benzodiazepine sleeping tablets work by binding with a natural amino acid found in the brain called gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) and promoting an increased feeling of calm.
This increased feeling of calm helps people suffering with insomnia to relax and fall asleep much quicker than they would do without the medication.
It is not uncommon for doctors to prescribe benzodiazepine medication for extended, or longer periods of time.
|Nonbenzodiazepines:||Drugs found in this class of sedative medication are much newer than traditional benzodiazepine sleeping tablets. The most widely used medications from this class of medication, by far, are zopiclone and zolpidem.
Nonbenzodiazepine sleeping tablets are also sometimes called 'Z-drugs' and while they have got a different chemical structure to benzodiazepines, they have a similar mechanism of action and as a result share similar benefits, along with similar side effects and similar (potential) risks.
Z drugs are labeled as strong sleeping pills, but are considered a safer option than the traditional benzos, and as a result are prescribed more by doctors to cure insomnia. The reason they are considered safer is because they leave the body much quicker than benzodiazepines and patients are at less risk of experiencing drowsiness the next day.
It is impossible to say which are the best sleeping tablets because each medication is designed to aid sleep in a slightly different way, meaning the best sleeping tablets for someone else might not necessarily be the best sleeping tablets for you.
Sleeping tablets are designed to aid sleep, and like all other medications come with many benefits, as well as some potential side effects. The side effects are mild and generally pass unnoticed, especially by someone suffering from chronic insomnia and sleep deprivation.
One of the most common side effects reported includes daytime drowsiness the next day - meaning patients should be extra careful when using a sleeping pill if they need to drive to work the next day.
Just like most medications, sleeping tablets should not be used in conjunction with alcohol. In this situation both the sleeping tablets and alcohol are working in the same way, to slow down the heart rate and produce a feeling of calm. The alcohol can amplify the sedating effects of the sleeping tablets and cause over-sedation, which can lead to confusion, dizziness, breathing difficulties and an unusually slow heart rate.
Similarly, sleeping tablets should not be mixed with caffein based drinks, such as tea/coffee or cola. In this situation the caffeine is working against the sleeping tablets, to speed up the heartbeat, which can result in the sleeping tablets not working effectively.
Although it is extremely rare, if patients do experience any unwanted or long-lasting side effects, they are advised to take it seriously and contact emergency services immediately.
The debate between sleeping tablets online and herbal sleeping tablets is an extremely close battle in the UK, with sleeping tablets being searched for online 1,600 times monthly and herbal sleeping tablets coming out on top with 1,900 monthly searches.
Studies indicate that the reason for more sales of the second type is because herbal sleeping tablets are less effective than prescription sleeping tablets that are specially designed to aid sleep, meaning more users experience rebound insomnia and end up purchasing more of the same treatment.
Looking at the bigger picture however, the term sleeping tablets has over 22,000 monthly searches, and the term sleeping tablets in the UK has 5,400 monthly searches, which shows that when it comes to shopping for sleeping tablets, UK customers love to shop online!
If you are still unsure if you have insomnia, which type of insomnia you have, or whether you can benefit from sleeping tablets, there are several online services that provide an insomnia test, such as the NHS that enable patients to perform a self-assessment on their sleeping habits.
This insomnia test was reproduced based on the Sleepio sleep test, a digital sleep improvement program centered around cognitive and behavioral techniques. This platform which is scientifically proven to help overcome poor sleep and improve mental health, was designed by Professor Colin Espie (Oxford University) and is managed by Big Health Ltd.
There also are many other sleep apps available for free download on Google Play that can assist in tracing the root cause of insomnia and encouraging a good night's sleep.
