“A well-spent day brings happy sleep.”
The sleeping disorder has been a common problem in many – thanks to the sedentary and stressful life, a reckless lifestyle and too much dependency on drugs, alcohol, medicines and caffeinated products. However, the advancement in medical science has made it possible to eradicate insomnia and other sleeping disorders to a great extent. According to science, a person is bound to be affected by Insomnia, when certain chemicals in the brain venture into an unbalanced state.
Hence, if that chemical unbalances can be treated, you can effectively get rid of this disorder. One such medicine that is considered to be a great sleeping aid is Ambien or Zolpidem. Although you will find a number of over the counter medicines to get rid of sleep disorders, Ambien works better compared to many another drug. It offers instant relief. You can fall asleep faster and the troubles of falling asleep can be eradicated leading to a better night’s rest.
It is fast and effective:
Amongst the many drugs that are used as sleeping aids, most work at a slow pace. It takes quite some time for the medication to react in the body. However, in the case of Ambien, the effects and the results are fast. Ambien gets dissolved easily in the bloodstream ensuring balance amongst the brain chemicals.
My doctor prescribed Ambien for me and I have been taking this for quite some time. No other medicine that I took previously, proved to be so effective. It starts working within 15 minutes.
Best for short term treatment:
“The best bridge between despair and hope is a good night’s sleep.”
Ambien is extremely useful in initiating sleep. However, in order to maintain the sleep, a serene atmosphere, and a controlled ambience is highly essential. Doctors prescribe this medicine usually for short-term treatment for insomnia. I was prescribed to take Ambien for about four weeks; but within two weeks, I got total relief from insomnia. I was able to fall asleep on my own, without depending on the medicine. But of course, practicing good sleeping habit is a must, so that your good night’s rest is a long one, lasting between 7 to 8 hours.
Most popular medicine for treating insomnia:
This sleep-inducing pill is there on the block for two decades ever since FDA first approved Ambien in the year 1992 as a safe and effective drug for treating sleeping disorders. With controlled dosage, it can induce sleep like no other medicine. “The only thing that you need to keep in mind is that the dosage should be controlled so that it doesn’t act as a ‘hypnotic’ and cause hallucinations”, my doctor made me aware.
But of course, you are not going to use it for long term or even in high dosage. Just a 5mg dose is enough to induce sleep. No doubt it is the number one prescription sleep aid for treating insomnia and other sleeping disorders. However, no medicine will be effective if you continue taking them for years. Stop its usage as soon as you get rid of the problem.
