Stress is almost inevitable. The same type of complex reaction of the nervous system is to conflicts, extreme effects, and external stimuli. Ordinary emotions turn into irritability, anxiety, emotions or even fear, which can become the culprit of the emergence of the depletion of the adaptive protective system, the disruption of the endocrine and immune system.
Stress can be:
The first case, as a rule, is characterized by a large and sudden irritability, which can develop into chronic stress.
As a result, the adaptive defense system is unable to cope with stressful situations on its own and the person becomes irritable, mentally unstable, passive, inattentive, unworkable, and may even experience a depressive state.
Depression is not weak-willingness, not non-assortment; it is a disease that needs treatment. Therefore, many doctors are very serious and recommend patients not to ignore nervous overwork.
In almost all cases, psychotropic drugs are used to treat stress. Modern life and ecology do not leave a person any choice. We constantly have to use various medications, including sedatives. Most people who are faced with the problem of increased irritability and nervous overexcitement hesitate to seek medical help and prefer to buy self-sedative pills, often not too effective and expensive. Soothing drugs are also called sedatives. They are able to provide such a sedative effect for nerves for adults:
- inhibit nerve reactions and eliminate increased CNS excitation,
- normalize the work of the autonomic nervous system: reduce the rate of heart rhythm, reduce increased sweating, relieve spasms of the intestine and eliminate trembling in the hands,
- eliminate the symptoms of nervous disorders: increased aggressiveness, irritability or tearfulness,
- effectively struggle insomnia.
Soothing means for the nervous system is not a sleeping pill, but they can slow the functioning of the cerebral cortex, normalize the physiological sleep, eliminating the increased sensitivity to various stimuli.
All sedatives increase the effect of hypnotics, tranquilizers, analgesics, and neuroleptics. Therefore, when using these drugs at the same time, you need to reduce dosages and observe the possible manifestation of side effects.
Sedatives are often prescribed for the treatment of neuroses and neurasthenia and are sometimes included in the number of drugs for controlling insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, neurosis of the cardiovascular system, hypertension and climacteric syndrome.
Each person is suited to their sedative, as the nervous disorders have a different nature of occurrence. Note that powerful soothing types such as Ativan, Valium, and others are not suitable for everyone. You can choose the most appropriate and safe remedy for you.
The effectiveness of the drug depends largely on how you take the medicine, how it suits you. Ativan is almost universal drug, except for cases of disease and individual contraindications.
The most effective sedative for adults will be, of course, the one that the doctor appointed. This is because increased irritability or nervous breakdown can be a symptom of a serious mental disorder, a serious internal disease or a hormonal malfunction, diagnosed only by a doctor. If in doubt, do not disregard the assistance of a specialist.
