Why sleeping pills are bad?
Many people around the world think that sleeping pills are their best option in treating insomnia. Well, let me tell you this – they are most definitely wrong. Well, the truth is that sleeping pills can’t help you in the long-term process. They just provide a short-term fix of your insomnia problems.
These, sleeping pills are a specific type of medication that promotes and maintains sleep. Actually, these medications are classified as something called – sedative hypnotics. Among other sedative hypnotic drugs are benzodiazepines and barbiturates. Benzodiazepines – these sleeping pills can be addictive and they are also used to treat anxiety disorders, by increasing drowsiness. And the barbiturates sleeping pills depress the central nervous system, which means that they are used as anesthetics and sedatives.
These sleeping medications and drugs can cause many side effects. Besides the addiction problem, these sleeping pills can cause the following health problems:
- Difficulty focusing and remembering
- Stomach pain
- Uncontrollable shaking
These sleeping medications can slow down your heart rate as well, which means that if you suffer from lung diseases (COPD or asthma) these medications can be really dangerous for you, even fatal.
