Having trouble sleeping for one or two nights isn't uncommon. When you have trouble sleeping for longer than that, or if you experience trouble sleeping for one or two nights but on a regular basis, you may begin looking into treatment options. Before doing that, the simplest thing to do is to examine your habits and lifestyle. You may find a few causes, or one single cause of stress; stress and anxiety are by far the main reasons for insomnia. If there are stressful factors which are causing you to have trouble sleeping, there may be a cognitive answer to dealing with these factors. We are told the benefits of eating right and exercising regularly, and when it comes to dealing with insomnia this is no exception; if you exercise (during the day, not late at night) this improves your body on many different levels and burns off energy. Trust nature to treat what ails you, especially in the case of trouble sleeping. There are so many natural remedies to help with sleep that unless you have a serious physical problem you should be able to deal with insomnia safely, without the use of pharmaceuticals. Don't let trouble sleeping interrupt your life any further.
If you are thinking of using Ativan think again! Even by the standards of other prescription drugs it is dangerous, and people using Ativan require constant monitoring of kidney and liver function to ensure that it is not causing permanent damage to the body. Ativan is prescribed all too often, both for anxiety and sleep problems, but the prescription of a pharmaceutical drug like Ativan makes the assumption that your anxiety and sleeping problems are being caused by a chemical imbalance when there are many other factors which could be affecting you. Before resorting to the use of Ativan or another benzodiazepine you should try a combination of lifestyle changes, relaxation techniques, cognitive therapy and/or herbal remedies. All of these are obviously side effect and dependency free methods of dealing with anxiety and insomnia, whereas Ativan can lead to addiction, dependency and permanent damage to the body.
Approximately one third of the adult population will have trouble sleeping sometime during this year. Usually trouble sleeping is short term, just a few nights, but when the problem persists for long periods there are major negative consequences. Obviously focus and concentration are severely impaired when getting no sleep or having trouble sleeping for long periods of time. There are also a lot of negative effects on the brain when it comes to long term trouble sleeping; it is difficult to form new memories or recall old ones, processing information becomes far more difficult, a person can become confused easily, and in the most extreme cases hallucinations occur. Having trouble sleeping or getting no sleep at all can result in weight gain because of hormonal changes and a slowing of the metabolism. Hypertension has been reported and there are a lot more negative physical conditions that can arise from trouble sleeping. The situation is more serious than you may think, and you should look for ways to remedy an inability to sleep.
