What Is Insomnia
Insomnia is defined as either the inability to get to sleep, or the inability to stay asleep during the night. Both the inability to get to sleep and the inability to stay asleep can lead to an individual experiencing an unhealthy amount of sleep.
Types Of Insomnia
Short Term Insomnia:
Short-term insomnia is also sometimes referred to as acute insomnia or adjustment insomnia, because the sleeplessness is generally caused by a stressful life event that takes time to adjust.
Examples of such events include the death of a love one, the loss of a job, or the breakdown of a long-term relationship, as well as political aspects such as Brexit, or the effects of living under lockdown.
This is the most common type of insomnia and it generally passes on its own without the need for a doctor to prescribe a sleep aid.
Chronic insomnia is when a person has difficulty sleeping, at least three nights per week, for a period of two to three months .
Similar to short-term or adjustment insomnia, chronic insomnia can be caused by a stressful situation but it is much more likely to be the result of poor sleep hygiene, recurring nightmares, an underlying medical condition or a mental health disorder.
When a patient is suffering from long term chronic insomnia that is disturbing their daily routine, a doctor may prescribe UK Medsdirect.
How To Prevent Insomnia
As is true with many problems in life, prevention is the best cure for insomnia .
Learning how to prevent insomnia is an important part of CBT-I (cognitive behavior therapy for insomnia).
The following tips have been shown to help promote a healthy sleep:
The combination of long-term positive lifestyle choices along with the short-term use of sleep aids, is known to be the fastest and most effective solution to deal with sleeping problems and prevent rebound insomnia.
Cure Insomnia Without UK Medsdirect
Before prescribing medication, doctors and pharmacists will usually suggest sleep education, also known as cognitive behavior therapy, or CBT-I for insomnia.
Cognitive behavior therapy teaches patients the importance of setting the scene for a good night’s sleep, suggesting that the bedroom should be used for sleep (and sex) only, and that all other activities should be conducted outside the bedroom.
Here are some more suggestions on how you can set the scene for a good night’s sleep in your bedroom:
Fall Asleep Quickly Using Sleeping Pills
Most people that suffer from insomnia experience difficulty falling asleep, or have sleep onset insomnia , due to negative thoughts or restless legs, and end up tossing and turning for hours. Sleep aids can help reduce the time needed to fall asleep, thereby increasing total sleep time.
These medications also prevent middle-of-the-night (MOTN) insomnia which is characterised by nocturnal awakenings with difficulty returning to sleep afterwards. It is the most frequently reported symptom of insomnia with approximately 35% of adults waking up during the night three or more times a week.
How Sleeping Pills Work
Sleeping pills are specially designed to make patients feel sleepy and fall asleep quickly. People that use a sleep aid are normally able to cure themselves of insomnia symptoms in under 4 weeks.
These medications should only be used as the short-term treatment (2 – 4 weeks) due to their habit-forming chemical compounds.
When used properly and in accordance with the patient information leaflet, sleeping pills can help put an end to patterns of poor sleep and provide relief to people who are severely sleep deprived.
Sleep aids can create an opportunity for patients to work on the underlying cause of their insomnia:
Just like types of insomnia, there are two main types of sleeping pills:
Popular sleep aids in this class include Nitrazepam, Temazepam and Diazepam, which all provide a calming effect and help patients fall asleep. Benzodiazepine sleep aids are most commonly prescribed by doctors to patients that are suffering from insomnia induced by anxiety or panic attacks.
Also called Z drugs, or Z hypnotics. Medications from this class include Zopiclone (brand name Zimovane) and Zolpidem (Brand name Ambien). Non benzodiazepine sleep aids help patients fall asleep and can help patients stay asleep for a duration of 7 – 8 hours, and are generally only prescribed for the treatment of insomnia.
Each of these medications work slightly differently but they all act on the same gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors in the brain, which help control alertness and relaxation levels.
Studies show that non benzodiazepine sleep aids are considered safer, and prescribed more than benzodiazepine sleep aids due to the reduced risk of patients experiencing side effects such as drowsiness the next day.
Most common side effects:
Any unwanted side effects experienced will generally subside when the medication leaves the body, and should not continue into the next day. If any unwanted effects persist patients are advised to stop taking the medication, and only resume once consulting with their doctor or pharmacist.
Over The Counter Vs. Online UK Medsdirect
The debate over OTC UK Medsdirect and online sleeping pills has become fierce in recent years resulting in a larger number of sleep aid medicines becoming available over the counter in high street pharmacies such as Boots and Lloyds Pharmacy, and a larger number of online pharmacies popping up to offer a more discreet alternative.
Sleep aids available over the counter normally contain antihistamines or combinations of antihistamines and pain relievers or alcohol, and include brand names such as Nytol, Unisom and Tylenol.
The OTC sleep aids mentioned above are considered safe for long-term use, but while they are designed to make users feel sleepy and fall asleep, they are known to be less effective at helping users stay asleep.
When a patient is suffering from chronic insomnia, or experiencing a lack of sleep due to frequent awakenings during the night, a pharmacist may suggest online sleeping pills as they are known to help patients stay asleep, and help prevent rebound insomnia.
