Medication and Sleep

Medication affects us in more ways than we initially thought. For example, Viagra was originally a blood pressure medication however it also caused a number of patients (male) to have erections. It was then also discovered it could help men with Diabetes maintain a healthy sex life, making everyone happy!

With a lot of medication, you’ll find all kinds of side effects, increased appetite, reduced appetite, drowsiness, suicidal thoughts, tinnitus, and nausea. You name it, it’s a side effect. This is why it is always advisable to read carefully the leaflet that comes with your medication and keep it to hand for if you even need it. It’s only a leaflet it’s not going to fill your bag!

When taking medication, sometimes if you get the tiredness side effect, which is actually very common, speak to your doctor, for it may be a better idea to change the dose or the time you take it. There are 24 hours in every day, so technically, no matter what time you take it, as long as you don’t double dose, it’s going to still do its job whether you take it before bed or in the morning.

The only time medication should be treated with caution when changing times of day is anti-retroviral drugs, as these must be administered at specific intervals. If you are taking this type of medication speak with your doctor to work out the best plan of action to suit you, this could include upping the dose but reducing the number of medicines you take per day, or could involve a complete upheaval of your routine and new medication being prescribed and at different times.

If you take herbal medication, such as St. Johns Wort but make sure that you discuss this with your doctor before taking any other drugs, for they could react with each other or worse, cancel the other out. Also if you take herbal drugs such as Wild Lettuce Extract, then speak to your doctor about it, for these are hallucinogenic which are commonly used to treat insomnia.

Be sure to always read the labels and any literature you receive with a medication to ensure you know exactly what the medication is, what it does, and any potential side effects. Most side effects are very common and go within a few days of regularly taking the medication however should you have a rare or very rare side effect, stop taking the medication and speak to your doctor as soon as possible.
