About Sleeping tablets
What are sleeping tablets?
Sleeping tablets are in a group of drugs called non-benzodiazepines, and they are otherwise known as Z-drugs. They are also known as hypnotics.
Sleeping tablets are used to treat problems with sleep for a very short period of time. They should only be used for a few days due to the possible severe side effects and risk of dependency.
Because of the risks of dependency if this medication isn’t taken in the appropriate manner, we follow a strict prescribing policy. Read our Z-drug policy.
How do sleeping pills work?
Sleeping pills slow down the functions of your body and brain. This means you breathe more slowly, your heart beats at a decreased pace and you don’t think as quickly.
Sleeping tablets can be helpful for managing severe cases of insomnia where other methods of tackling sleep issues haven’t worked. The medication can help you get back into a good sleep routine, but you shouldn’t rely on it to help you sleep every night.
The longer you take sleeping pills, the less likely they are to work. This is because your body builds up a tolerance to the medication. This is one of the reasons that a short course of this treatment is recommended.
Is taking sleeping tablets safe?
Sleeping pills are safe to take as long as you follow the advice of your doctor. They should only be taken for a few days if you have very bad insomnia that hasn’t been solved by other treatments or self care methods.
There are some serious side effects associated with sleeping tablets. There is also a risk that you might become dependent on them.
Because of the addictive nature of this medicine, we follow a strict policy when prescribing it. This is very important when buying sleeping pills online. Read our Z-drug policy.
