What Diazepam tablets are and what they are used for
Valium (Diazepam) belongs to a group of medicines called benzodiazepines. Diazepam helps in the treatment of anxiety, muscle spasms and convulsions (fits).
Diazepam tablets are used to treat a number of conditions, including:
- short term relief (2-4 weeks only) of severe anxiety, which is an emotional state where you may sweat, tremble, feel anxious and have a fast heart beat and may occur alone or with insomnia (trouble sleeping) or mental health problems
- helping muscles relax and for muscle spasm and cerebral palsy (a condition affecting the brain which causes movement problems and rigidity or stiffness)
- epilepsy (when taken with other medicines)
- patients with the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal
- helping to relax nervous dental patients.


Tell your doctor or pharmacist before you take diazepam if you have any of these conditions

 

You need to talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking Diazepam if you:
- are allergic (hypersensitive) to diazepam or to other benzodiazepine medicines or to any of the other ingredients in your tablets
- are breathless or have difficulty breathing
- have depression (with or without anxiety) or hyperactivity
- have a phobia (a fear of a particular object or situation) or other mental illness
- have myasthenia gravis
- suffer from sleep apnoea ( a condition where you stop breathing whilst asleep)
- have severe liver disorders
- have porphyria (an inherited condition causing skin blisters, gut pain and brain or nervous system disorders)
- are planning a pregnancy or are pregnant

Diazepam has some serious side effects, and if you get them you will need a doctor’s help
Go to a doctor or hospital straight away if you get any of the following symptoms, as they might be part of an allergic reaction:
- itchy skin or rash
- swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat
- difficulty breathing or swallowing
Some other side-effects that do appear should get better after a few days. If they do not, you should go back to your doctor.
Some side-effects of Diazepam may – strangely - seem like other mental health symptoms. Some side-effects here are also the opposites of each other. The balance of chemicals in the brain is very fragile, and hard to control! If they do not get better after a few days on the tablets, go back to the doctor.
Do not stop taking the tablets until you talk to your doctor, or you may get withdrawal symptoms as well.

Lack of sleep can blight lives and ruine health, and more than halth of us suffer from it. Here is described one of the most effective drug that can help you to get a good night's rest.1 

 

Zolpidem(Zolbien) 10mgis one of the most commonly prescribed drugs used to treat insomnia(sleeeping problem). Studies have found long-term use of Zolpidem for up to one year safe and effective, but currentFDA(U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approval is limited to short-term use. Zolpidem should only be used at the lowest possible dose and for a maximum of up to four weeks. This will reduce the chance of tolerance, dependence and withdrawal symptoms. Reducing the dose of Zolpidem gradually over time may reduce the chances of having these problems.

 

Zolpidemappears to offer significant advantages over benzodiazepines, the other drug class most commonly used for insomnia. This is due to Zolpidem's lower incidence of adverse side effects including daytime sedation, amnesia, tolerance, drug dependence, and rebound insomnia after discontinuing the drug. Zolpidem produces a sleep pattern very comparable to normal sleep, which likely explains its superiority.zolpidem.jpg

 

The normal Zolpidem dose for treatment of insomnia in adults is 10 milligrams immediate release. Dosing shouldbe individualized to patient response. Therapy should be limitted to seven to ten days. There are no data on the effectiveness or safety of Zolpidem in children under 18 years of age.

 

Zolpidem should not be taken with food because it decreases absorption and lowers the maximum concentration of the drug in the bloodstream. Due, to its rappid effects Zolpidem should be taken immediately before bed time or when having trouble falling asleep. It is essential to get at least eight hours continuous and uninterrupted sleep after taking Zolpidem.

 

The most frequent side effects reported with short-term use (up to 10 nights at doses up to 10mg) of Zolpidem are daytime drowziness, dizziness, headache, and GI symptoms (nausea, vomitting and diarrhea). Dizziness and drugged feelings were most frequently reported with longer term use (28 to 35 nights at doses up to 10 mg).

 

Zolpidemis not suitable for everyone and some peopleshould never use it. Other people should only use it with special care. It is important that the doctor prescribing this medicine knows your full medical history.

Depression is a potentially serious medical condition that only your doctor can diagnose. While the symptoms of depression are relatively universal and few, the treatment options include over 100 different medications, not counting various types of talk therapy and lifestyle changes.

ZoloftYellow.jpgZOLOFT (sertraline) is an approved by FDA medication to treat in adults Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD), and Social Anxiety Disorder. It is also approved to treat Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) in children and adolescents aged 6-17 years.

Zoloft can cause sleepiness or may affect your ability to make decisions, think clearly, or react quickly. You should not drive, operate heavy machinery, or do other dangerous activities until you know how ZOLOFT affects you.

Women who are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or who are breastfeeding should not take ZOLOFT without consulting their physician.

The most commonly observed adverse reactions in patients treated with Zoloft were nausea (25%), delayed ejaculation (14%), shakiness (8%), increased sweating (7%), lack of appetite (6%), and reduced sexual desire (6%).

Do not stop taking Zoloft, even when you feel better. zoloft.pngOnly your healthcare provider can determine the length of treatment that is right for you. Missing doses of Zoloft may increase your risk for relapse in your symptoms.

Zoloft is usually taken 1 time per day with or without food. The dose usually ranges from 50 mg to 200 mg. Only your healthcare provider can determine the correct dose for you.

Avoid drinking alcohol or using illegal drugs while you are taking antidepressant medications. They may decrease the benefits (e.g., worsen your condition) and increase adverse effects (e.g., sedation) of the medication.

Zimovane (zopiclone) is a type of medicine called a non-benzodiazepine hypnotic. It acts in the brain to aid sleep

Zopiclone works by acting on receptors in the brain called GABA receptors. This causes the release of a neurotransmitter called GABA in the brain. GABA is a neurotransmitter that acts as a natural 'nerve-calming' agent. It helps keep the nerve activity in the brain in balance, and is involved in inducing sleepiness, reducing anxiety and relaxing muscles.

beat-away-insomnia.pngZopiclone can be used as a short-term treatment for insomnia. This includes difficulty falling asleep, waking in the night, waking early in the morning, sleeping problems related to psychiatric disorders and sleeping problems that are causing severe distress.

Zopiclone decreases the time taken to fall asleep and night-time awakenings, as well as increasing the total amount of time spent sleeping. However, it is only suitable for short-term treatment of insomnia (up to four weeks), as when used for longer periods it has a potential for dependence and addiction.

The medicine should be taken shortly before going to bed for the night.

It is important to tell your doctor or pharmacist what medicines you are already taking, including those bought without a prescription and herbal medicines, before you use this medicine. Similarly, check with your doctor or pharmacist before using any new medicines while using this one, to ensure that the combination is safe.

The recommended dose for adults is 7.5mg. This dose should not be exceeded!

Treatment of the elderly and patients with impaired liver function or chronic respiratory insufficiency should be initiated on a dose of 3.75mg and if necessary increased to 7.5mg.
Although in case of renal insufficiency no accumulation of zopiclone or of its metabolites has been detected, it is recommended that patients with impaired renal function should start treatment with 3.75mg.

Bitter taste is the most common side effect observed with Zopiclone. Other side effects like drowsiness, confusion, fatigue, headache, dizziness, muscle weakness, ataxia or double vision may occurs at the start of the therapy and usually disappear with repeated administration.
