Sleeping pills and Duromine
The use of Duromine may cause insomnia. Even if insomnia does not occur after using a single dose of Duromine 15mg or 30mg, difficulty falling asleep may appear after the increase of Duromine dose up to 40mg. Patients, who experience sleep problems after the Duromine use, are recommended to use sleeping pills.
Duromine is a prescription drug that may interact with other drugs. Therefore, the Duromine use before, simultaneously or after RX sleeping pills may have a negative effect on health. Before taking sleeping pills in the combination with Duromine, it is better to consult a doctor.
All sleeping pills are divided into three main groups:
- Antihistamine sleeping pills can be bought under the trade names Restavit and Phenergan. Like Duromine, antihistamine sleeping pills can cause dizziness and dry mouth. Therefore, the risk of side effects increases in the combined use of Duromine and antihistamines.
- Benzodiazepine sleeping pills are sold at pharmacies under the trade names: Serepax, Temazepam, Normison and Mogadon. One can buy these sleeping pills by prescription only. Like Duromine, benzodiazepines can negatively affect the liver and kidney functions. Thus, patients taking benzodiazepines are better to refuse from the Duromine use. Furthermore, benzodiazepines can cause muscle weakness. Therefore, obese patients taking benzodiazepine sleeping pills find very difficult to do exercises
- Nonbenzodiazepines (Z-drugs) are RX sleeping pills commercially available under trade names Zolpidem, Alpidem, Zopiclone and Pazinaclone. The mechanism of nonbenzodiazepines action is similar to the mechanism of benzodiazepines action.
