Both Nitrazepam and Diazepam are strong benzodiazepine medications which are mainly prescribed by the physicians in the treatment of anxiety disorder, restless legs syndrome, depression and chronic sleeplessness. Benzodiazepines act on the brain and the central nervous system to offer relief to users. Benzodiazepine has sedative properties which promotes drowsiness among anxiety sufferers and enables a person to doze off.
Why is doctor's advice necessary before the use of Benzodiazepines ?
Prolonged use of benzodiazepines can make the user psychologically and physically dependent on the drug. After taking this medication for a longer duration, it doesn’t deliver the desired results on the user and they may require a higher dose in order to attain a similar effect.
Benzodiazepine users may experience short term effects such as talkativeness, feelings of enhanced happiness and increased self confidence. However such people become calmer and free from worrisome thoughts during the course of treatment.
Anxiety, Insomnia, stomach cramps, diarrhea and fever are some of the physical withdrawal symptoms which can last for 3-10 days. However, psychological withdrawal symptoms such as angry outburst, agitation, sleeplessness and anxiety attacks last for a longer time.
Benzodiazepine users should not attempt to discontinue the medicine themselves. Rather, patients dependent on them should consult a health care expert for a therapy or detoxification program. Both these measures are necessary for a safe and effective journey to recovery.
We will study the features, utility, efficacy and the probable side effects of both these medications.
Best Sleeping Pill Nitrazepam
Nitrazepam acts on certain chemicals in the brain to manage the symptoms of anxiety and promotes relaxation among users.It induces sleep among insomniacs and enhances the quality of slumber.This medication works by eliminating the symptoms of anxiety and induces sleep among insomniacs.
Nitrazepam is available in a 5 mg pill. Prior consultation with a sleep specialist is essential before taking this prescription. Correct dose as per the doctor’s prescription, is mandatory for a successful treatment and a sound rest.
Safety Precautions and Warnings
Nitrazepam is a habit forming medication and should be used moderately for a limited duration. People who took it for more than 3 months without getting the approval of their physician become tolerant to it and experienced a lot of difficulty when their physician asked them to taper its use. Sudden discontinuation is strictly prohibited by physicians. Hence, it is advisable for a Nitrazepam user, to stay in direct touch with a doctor during the course of treatment and follow all the instructions carefully.
Any activity which requires people to remain mentally alert such as operating heavy machinery or driving a vehicle must be avoided after its use. Nitrazepam tablets ought not be blended with liquor as it might prompt potential reactions. Use of nitrates with other recreational substances is strictly prohibited.
Nitrazepam is not suitable for pregnant women and lactating mothers, and can create complications for the patients of heart, liver, kidney and lung. Patients of stress, anxiety , depression and drug abuse should never try this drug. People should avoid taking it with other benzodiazepine drugs and should keep it in a safe and secure place, away from the reach of children and pets.
All medications have some side effects attached to them and Nitrazepam is not an exception. It can lead to dizziness, memory problems, headache, slurred speech, reduced alertness, vision problems, drowsiness and fatigue. Adverse effects include high BP, decreased libido, hallucination, clumsiness of fingers, liver toxicity etc. This is the reason why patients are advised to adhere to a doctor’s prescription.
We experience nervousness, stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression in our day to day lives. It has been observed that few patients of nervousness can't manage their pressure well and surrender to sedatives in order to doze off. An essential and widely endorsed pharmaceutical for the treatment of chronic sleeplessness is Diazepam.
Diazepam (Valium) is also prescribed in the treatment of anxiety and panic disorders, liquor withdrawal symptoms, muscle spasms, seizures, social anxiety disorder, depression and epilepsy. It is accessible in the form of tablets, syrups, and injections and marketed under various brand names all over the world.
Usage guidelines and safety precautions
Specialist's recommendation is obligatory before the utilization of Diazepam. He is the best person to guide you regarding the proper dose and the potential side effects of this medication. The tablet or capsule form should be swallowed with water. Diazepam in liquid form should be measured accurately with a spoon or a dropper for an appropriate dosage. If, by chance, you forgot to take your daily dose, never take the double dosage next time.
You should stay in contact with your professional health care provider as long as you are using the best sleeping pills. An important point which you should keep in mind is that continuous usage of this drug leads to dependence and addiction. Diazepam users become accustomed to them after regular use and may require a higher dose after some time in order to experience a similar effect. Hence, it is advisable for users to take this medication moderately for a limited duration, and that too, under the supervision of a health care expert.
Patients with anxiety experience the ill effects of withdrawal symptoms, when they are asked to stop the use of Diazepam medications. Therefore, whenever, you want to discontinue the use of Diazepam, get in touch with a physician. He will gradually reduce the dose over a period of time so that you don’t experience withdrawal symptoms.
Headache, upset stomach, nausea, ataxia and drowsiness are some of the manageable side effects which don’t stay in the body of the users for a longer time. However, severe side effects such as sleep walking, sleep driving, hallucination, agitation and suicidal thoughts require immediate medical attention..
Nitrazepam has strong sedative qualities than Diazepam
A comparative analysis of both these benzodiazepine medications will prove that Nitrazepam has stronger sedative qualities as compared to Buy Diazepam. Hence, the role of the sleep expert becomes all the more important during the course of the treatment. Users should also avoid increasing or reducing the dose themselves. Moreover, they must seek the approval of their physician before discontinuing their use.
