The purpose of a sleeping pill is to treat those suffering from insomnia or generally unhealthy sleeping habits, whether they be difficulty falling asleep or waking up throughout the night.
Most sleeping tablets are classified under the category of “sedative hypnotics”, a specific class of medication used to induce and/or maintain sleep. The most common sedative hypnotics include benzodiazepines and barbiturates.
What are the Most Common Side Effects of Sleeping Tablets?
The most common side effect of sleeping tablets is daytime drowsiness. This is usually as a result of not following the dosage instructions correctly.
It is important to note that all benzodiazepines have been known to cause problems with cognitive ability such as memory and attention span. As a result, these sleeping pills are not recommended for long-term use.
Newer sleeping pills help reduce the time it takes to fall asleep. They affect the brain in a similar way to benzodiazepines, however they have been known to cause physical dependence. Products such as Lunesta, Sonata and Ambien mimic benzodiazepines with less risk of becoming addictive.
Barbiturates, the other most common sedative hypnotic, depress the central nervous system to cause drowsiness. Barbiturates are also prescribed as a sedative and are commonly limited to use as anaesthesia. Overdosing barbiturates can be fatal, so it is imperative to follow the dosage requirements strictly.
Not all sleeping pills have the potential to become addictive. Products such as Rozerem and Belsomra are not addictive or habit-forming, however they tend to be weaker than benzodiazepines and barbiturates.
How to be Safe When Taking Sleeping Pills
The most effective way to minimise the risk of daytime drowsiness caused by sleeping tablets is to ensure that they are taken at the right time. Sleeping tablets such as Ambien or Lunesta should be taken directly before you get into bed.
Sleeping pills should only be taken if you are able to get between 7-8 hours of undisturbed sleep. If you take sleeping tablets in the middle of the night, your chances of daytime drowsiness increase dramatically.
Many people with insomnia wake up in the middle of the night and struggle to go back to sleep. This condition is called “sleep maintenance insomnia”. There is a product to treat the sleep maintenance of insomnia and it can be taken in the middle of the night. The product is called Intermezzo, and should only be taken if there are over 4 hours of bedtime left.
