Millions of Americans take sleeping pills to get a good night’s rest. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that approximately four percent of all American adults (about nine million people) take medication to combat sleep disorder. While these medications can, on a limited basis, help get a good night’s sleep, they’re also extremely addictive and come with their own set of withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal from sleeping pills manifests when users develop biological tolerance to these drugs. It presents through a variety of mild to severe physical and psychological symptoms. Recovery Unplugged Texas offers compassionate, effective and medically supervised sleeping pills withdrawal treatment in Austin. Call us today at (855) 384-6340.
Each user’s sleeping pill withdrawal period will vary based upon the scope and severity of their symptoms. The longer abuse persists, the worse the withdrawal period is likely to be. Some of the more common sleeping pill withdrawal symptoms include, but are not limited to muscle spasms, seizures, insomnia, delirium, anxiety, cravings, irritability and mood swings, depression, racing heart rate, excessive sweating, tremors, flu-like symptoms, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and joint pain. If you or someone care about have started experiencing these symptoms or any others related to your sleeping-pill use, talk to your physician or seek treatment immediately.
Sleeping pills are generally administered via prescription so patients and their loved ones are convinced that they’re taking a self, benign and generally harmless drug. It can be difficult to distinguish sleeping pill use from abuse and withdrawal is one of the clearest indicators of dependency. It’s important to monitor your own intake habits, as well as your loved ones’ to ensure that these pills are being taken in a manner consistent with the prescribing physicians’ instructions. Many never bother to get a prescription and wind up either accepting or stealing pills from their friends’ legitimate supply. Taking sleeping pills without a prescription can cause serious changes to the brain’s chemistry for which users may not be prepared.
One of the tragically ironic elements of sleeping pills withdrawal is that it leads to even worse insomnia than when patients first started taking the drug. It also yields other symptoms that make it extraordinarily difficult, if not impossible, to sleep. Symptoms can manifest in as little as a few hours after the last cycle of use, depending on the severity of addiction. Like other types of withdrawal, sleeping pills withdrawal is generally divided into three stages (early, acute and protracted). Acute withdrawal represents he worst of the symptomology and the peak of the period. Protracted symptoms can last for months.
Sleeping pill withdrawal should be treated through medically supervised detox. Recovery Unplugged Texas is one of the few sleeping pills treatment facilities in Austin that offers doctors and nurses to help our patients through the process.
