Insomnia or sleeplessness is a sleep disorder most people experience at least in some periods of life.
However, if it persists, it may have a very negative impact on health, takes away time, reduces work productivity, and sometimes leads to accidents at work.
Insomnia is manifested as an inability to sleep or a poor quality sleep. People also experience difficulties in falling asleep or waking up early in the dawn.
Over 50% of adults had symptoms of insomnia at least for one week.
Types of insomnia
We distinguish between chronic and acute insomnia.
Acute (short-term) insomnia occurs due to some stressful life circumstances. Stress affects the body and often causes sleep problems.
Chronic insomnia lasts more than a month and occurs as a result of mental problems or the consumption of drugs and medicine. This type of insomnia is more difficult to treat, and there is little chance of it passing spontaneously.
Insomnia may be a trigger for depression or the consequences of depression since lack of sleep greatly affects mood swings.
Some of the consequences of insomnia include:
- Continuous drowsiness during the day
- Bad mood
- Depressed mood
- Poor concentration
- Inability to solve problems
- Inability to make decisions
- Proneness to injuries and accidents
- Weak immune system.
Compared to the acute type, chronic insomnia requires a more serious and lasting treatment.
Insomnia and addiction to hypnotics
Many people take medications, usually hypnotics, on their own hook to get some sleep, which often leads to their abuse.
Hypnotics are medications used to treat insomnia, but they also cause physical and psychological addiction. Valium, Librium or Bensedine are generally used.
Valium is a drug that causes severe addiction, which comes quite accidentally. Continuous use of Valium over a long period leads to the body becoming immune requiring higher doses to produce initial effects.
At our hospital, we treat all types of addiction as well as psychological problems. Among other things, we offer our patients painless detoxification and treatment of addictions caused by hypnotics.
