A couple of nights of bad sleep (or very little sleep) probably won’t hurt you in the long term. The most likely outcome from this is that you will be very tired during the day – but after a few nights, you’ll be so exhausted that your body will simply force itself to sleep.
Insomnia is different. Insomnia is a medium to long term condition, which is encountered when the body is simply unable to get itself to sleep. For one reason or another (usually stress related or something to do with not having enough of the sleep chemicals in production) you just can’t get to sleep – no matter how tired you are.
Whilst short term sleeplessness is annoying, long term insomnia is downright dangerous – and needs to be treated in order to prevent the long term dangers.
Why Insomnia Needs to be Treated?
Insomnia needs to be treated as soon as you identify the problem. Almost the moment that you realize that you are past the point of plain “sleeplessness” and in to the territory of insomnia, you need to seek medical attention – because the faster you are able to treat the issue, the lower the side effects from insomnia will be.
Serious side effects of insomnia are as follows:
- Day time drowsiness
- Night terrors and bad nightmares
- Immune system weakening and therefore illness
Unfortunately, these side effects can develop within just 3 to 5 days of insomnia becoming a problem. This is why immediate treatment is highly recommended for anyone.
How is Insomnia Treated?
If you were to go to your doctor complaining that you had been unable to sleep for 3 to 4 nights, the most likely course of action that they will take would be to prescribe you a small course of Ambien. This is the most common sleeping aid currently available on the market – and it is by far the most effective.
Ambien is usually given as a short course of 7 to 14 days – to treat insomnia and return you back to a normal sleeping pattern. Studies have shown that in most cases, a 14 days dose will likely solve the issue of insomnia once and for all – and again allow you to rest at night completely unaided by any pharmaceutical drugs.
Clearly, insomnia is a serious issue. Treat it now with a course of prescription-free Ambien.
