Chronic insomnia.

Get out of insomnia. Chronic insomnia.

What do we know about insomnia? Perhaps not very much. Exactly until this problem touches us.
It was also with me. But now I have very well studied the problem of insomnia in the elderly and is ready to share my knowledge …

According to specialists in sleep and gerontology. It is extremely rare to find older people who really need to take sleeping pills.

Older people have exaggerated ideas about what should be a dream. Spending too much time on the bed trying to sleep.
They use sleep as a remedy for boredom.

Chronic insomnia.

The causes of insomnia, which can be treated without using drugs, are:

— Daytime sleep or overly early bedtime;
— the wrong idea of how much you should sleep every night. If you do not feel tired during the day, then you have slept enough the night before;
— lighting and noise. A quieter and darker room can promote a sound sleep;
— consumption of chocolate, coffee or tea or soft drinks less than 8 hours before going to bed;
— lack of ritual before going to bed. A warm bath, a pleasant book, a light, fresh food, a lack of work immediately before going to bed or in bed contributes to a sound sleep.

Older people should know about medicines that can cause insomnia. These are caffeine, a lot of anesthetics, phenylpropanolamine, contact, sufaph, theophylline, aminophylline, aminophylline, amphetamine, phenamine, sycco-carcotisone, hydrocortisone, thyroid preparations, L-thyroxine, mercaspil.

Chronic insomnia.

Insomnia can be caused by negative effects when taking hypnotics, tranquilizers and antidepressants.

Elderly people should not use barbiturates (phenobarbital).
They can not be used as sleeping drugs. As well as meprobamate, hydroxyzine, atarax, chloral hydrate.

If you have a sleep disorder. You are using one of these drugs.
Or if the problem arose when you started taking others
drugs. You must report this to your doctor. To improve the process of falling asleep, you can change the drug or reduce the dose.

A return to sleeping pills that have already created a negative effect will lead you to a vicious circle.

If the cause of sleep disorders is depression, then you need to be treated.
This is depression, and it is not easy to treat it as an indication of the prescription of hypnotic drugs. If the cause is a disease accompanied by pain, then the sick syndrome should be treated. Do not try to sleep with hypnotics.

Safety rules when taking sleeping pills.

— Ask your doctor not to prescribe the medicine for several weeks. Limit the first week of admission. Since you will only have one week, then the development of addiction is unlikely.

— At the end of each day, evaluate yourself or with the help of other people that you did during the day to find the causes of insomnia. This includes an assessment of what you have done to eliminate the external and internal causes of insomnia.

— Taking a sleeping pill. You can not drive a car. Do not work with dangerous machines.

— Drinking alcohol is prohibited. An overdose of sleeping pills in combination with alcohol can even be fatal.

— Before taking medicine, make sure that the doctor knows about all other medicines that you are taking. They can suppress the central nervous system. For example, such as antidepressants, narcotic analgesics, antipsychotics and hypnotics, antihistamines and antiepileptic drugs.

Taking sleeping pills along with other drugs that have a calming effect, dangerously increases the risk of side effects.
And better than any pills to return the dream of folk remedies.

I offer some simple recipes. They promote good sleep.

— Honey with tea has a calming effect on the body. Good to take before bedtime.

— In case of insomnia, 2-3 hours of a honey spoon will dissolve in a glass of warm boiled water. Take before bedtime. Well dissolve honey in a glass of warm or goat milk. You can use cow’s milk.

— 100 g of fresh raspberries (or 2 tablespoons of dried berries or raspberry jam) are dissolved in a glass of boiled water. After 1 minute of infusion, add 2 teaspoons of honey. All content is taken at bedtime.

— During dinner, eat more onions.

— Before going to bed, lubricate whiskey with lavender oil, plus 3-5 drops per lump of sugar. Suck before bedtime.
