Sleeping Tablets Can Help with Insomnia
The majority of adults in the UK have had difficulty falling asleep at some point due to worry or anxiety and often use a sleep aid for achieving a healthy sleep.
Worries about what may happen tomorrow or things that have happened in the past often prevent restful sleep.
Other persistent thoughts may include that encourage sleeplessness:
- How long have I been lying awake?
- What does the future hold?
- What important responsibilities do I have?
These thoughts can lead to a general feeling of being overstimulated which can make it difficult to sleep.
If anxiety associated with sleeplessness becomes a long-term problem, you may start to dread the thought of not being able to sleep properly.
This can become a vicious cycle so it is important to treat this condition before it reaches this stage. Strong sleeping pills can help by creating a calming effect so you can get the sleep you need and wake up feeling refreshed. We also stock a range of anxiety medication for people suffering from anxiety induced insomnia.
Insomnia is often caused by pain from underlying medical conditions, or pain from an accident in the past. The most commonly reported forms of pain that cause sleeplessness among UK patients include lower back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain and hip pain.
When pain is causing sleeplessness, sleeping tablets may not offer any assistance and patients often opt for a strong painkiller such as gabapentin, tramadol or pregabalin to provide fast, effective pain relief.
Insomnia can also be caused by various lifestyle factors. This can include taking naps in the afternoon, sleeping later some mornings or working late in the evenings. This can confuse your body’s natural circadian rhythm or internal biological clock which can make it difficult to sleep at night.
Unhealthy lifestyle habits such as binge drinking (excess alcohol consumption) can lead to sleep deprivation so it is important to strive for a consistent sleep schedule.
How to Use Sleeping Tablets Safely
Patients who buy sleeping tablets online should follow the guidelines and take the medication with some water just before bedtime (they should be swallowed whole – not crushed or chewed). This medication can be taken with or without food however taking medication on a completely empty stomach is not recommended.
Avoid the use of alcohol as it can increase the sedative effects to dangerous levels. You should always make sure that you have 7 to 8 hours of uninterrupted healthy sleep time.
The continuous treatment duration on a nightly basis is usually no longer than four weeks. During this time patients are advised to gradually build up and taper off the medication to avoid becoming dependent or developing an addiction.
Once a patient has developed an addiction, getting a normal night’s sleep without using sleeping tablets can become more difficult.
