Stilnox is one of the sleeping pills
Stilnox is one of the sleeping pills, which has similar effect with benzodiazepines, but different molecular component and structure. One of the trade name of Stilnox is zolpidem. It also has several names in different countries. This aid is habit-forming one, so it is forbidden to take it for a long time. Otherwise, patient may be dependent from this drug and he will require additional treatment. Also It is very important to use this drug in the proper dosage and intermittently. The main disadvantage of Stilnox is that it effects evaporates in two hours after intake.
User should take this pill only in low doses for the treatment of insomnia every three or five days a week maximum for three months. Patients, who takes this drug every day, are experiencing sleeping problems and after four weeks they are facing sleepless nights. If person would use above pills very often, he would be drug dependent. This period is characterized by strong reliance from the aids despite the fact that the person is aware of its danger.If patient takes this aid for a long time, he would face such symptoms as: anxiety, sweating, panic attacks, hallucinations, psychosis, seizures, convulsions, drowsiness, tremors, stomach cramps and so on.
In comparison Stilnox withdrawal symptoms are not as serious as benzodiazepines one, which are causing life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. Nevertheless, Stilnox addiction must be treated in rehabilitation center. Only in that case patient`s health will be restored. If we are talking about detoxification, so Stilnox detox is similar to benzodiazepine. Weaning process involves dosage reduction of drug over a period of weeks or months (it depends on the duration of addiction and its severity).
It is also known another method of the drug administration (this is about chlordiazepoxide or diazepam, which are similar to Stilnox). These pills are among long-acting and they are also using for benzodiazepine therapy. For example, one of the best aids for this are diazepam and chlordiazepoxide. They could be used for the treatment of alcoholism and benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms. Doctors are recommending to choose Diazepam, because it has long half-life and makes gradual dosage.
It often occurs situations when Stilnox-addicted people are delaying treatment because they are afraid of withdrawal symptoms. In that case it is better for them to choose an inpatient rapid detoxification program. Thanks to the rapid detoxification, drug comes out of the patient`s body. Flumazenil is known as benzodiazepine antagonist and often using in situations, when the benzodiazepine and nonbenzodiazepine overdoses happens. It also eliminates different side effects of benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms.
Thus, Stilnox is a serious drug, which is used to prevent insomnia. If patients will use it longer than three months, they could face not only addiction, but also many side effects. There are several ways for treading addiction, but the most popular and effective is detoxification, which outputs from the human body all the poisons. Before taking this aid it is recommended to red all the instructions. Only in this case user can prevent side effects.
