Sleeping Pills

Let’s talk about sleeping pills.

Benzodiazepines are often preescribed to treat
the SLEEP DISORDER known as insomnia.

Insomnia is described as :

The chronic inability to fall asleep or remain
asleep for an adequate length of time.

Lorazepam (Ativan) is often used to treat both
insomnia and anxiety disorders.

Side effects from lorazepam are common
and include:

dry mouth
upset stomach
changes in appetite

Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms
are severe or do not go away:

restlessness or excitement
difficulty urinating
frequent urination
blurred vision
changes in sex drive or ability

If you experience any of the following symptoms,
call your doctor immediately:

shuffling walk
persistent, fine tremor or inability to sit still
difficulty breathing or swallowing
severe skin rash
yellowing of the skin or eyes
irregular heartbeat

When taken in larger doses over extended periods of
time sleeping pills can become addictive.
