Nitrazepam is a medication which belongs to the benzodiazepine family, which includes diazepam and lorazepam. Different benzodiazepines vary slightly and will have different levels of bioavailability and elimination half-life durations for example. Nitrazepam tablets were developed and patented in 1961 and was licenced for use in 1965. It was manufactured for the treatment of a range of disorders, which we will discuss in more detail a little later. It has sedative qualities which cause relaxation and can help with mental health and physiological disorders. It is approved by the Medical and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and available on the Nation Health Service (NHS), however it is a Class C controlled substance in the UK. Even though it is usually a prescription only medication, you can buy nitrazepam online from our dedicated UK based pharmacy.
Nitrazepam is used for the management of a range of conditions, including anxiety, insomnia, epilepsy, and alcohol withdrawals. Epilepsy should not be self-managed at home however, and all types of epilepsy or transient seizures will need to be overseen by a consultant neurologist. Alcohol withdrawals also need to be monitored in an in-patient facility as it can be very dangerous to detox if you have become physically dependent on it. Detoxing can cause delirium and seizures, and most people require intramuscular vitamin injections. You can however buy cheap nitrazepam online for the management of anxiety and insomnia, which can be safely treated at home. Nitrazepam 10 mg is commonly used to treat various types of anxiety including generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety, panic disorder, and phobias. If you are experiencing the following symptoms, you may have an anxiety disorder:
Anxiety disorders affect people in different ways, so if you are not sure if any of the above applies to you, you can book a consultation with your GP and ask for a referral to your local mental health team. Nitrazepam 5 mg can be used for the treatment of insomnia as well, including sleep-onset and sleep-maintenance insomnia. Sleep-onset insomnia is characterised by the inability to get to sleep, and sleep-maintenance insomnia means that you can get to sleep but wake up in the night or wake up too early. You may also find that you cannot nap during the day even though you feel tired. If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms you may want to buy nitrazepam sleeping tablets for the management of your symptoms.
Nitrazepam belongs to the benzodiazepine family, which are central nervous system depressants. They work by binding to gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) neuronal receptors in the brain. The receptors are made of 5 subunits and the chemicals in nitrazepam tablets can bind to 1 of 2 receptors in each subunit. This causes the production and secretion of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA which subdue certain signals in the brain. Neurotransmitters are essentially chemical messengers which can either stimulate or inhibit the functioning of the central nervous system. Stimulatory neurotransmitters can make you more alert and this can be very useful at times, however if you have anxiety or insomnia, they can hinder your ability to function. GABA inhibits some of the electrical activity in the brain, resulting in relaxation and sedation. Benzodiazepines are powerful medications, and you can use nitrazepam for sleep as well as anxiety.
Nitrazepam tablets are absorbed rapidly, which means they starts to work quickly, usually after 30 to 60 minutes, reaching peak concentration levels after around 2 hours. It has a bioavailability of up to 94% and it is one of the more potent benzodiazepines. The rate of absorption, bioavailability and elimination half-life will depend on several factors including your metabolism, your body mass index (BMI), and whether or not you take it on an empty stomach or with food. It will stay in your system for 29 hours on average, which is particularly useful for sleep-maintenance insomnia, allowing you to stay asleep for 6 to 8 hours. As nitrazepam 10 mg has such a long elimination half-life, it will stay at a consistent level in your system, which can be maintained if you need to take it long-term for anxiety disorders. You can search the term 'nitrazepam for sale' or buy nitrazepam directly from our website.
Nitrazepam dosage will vary depending on what condition you are treating, as well as the severity of the disorder. Nitrazepam 10 mg is the most commonly prescribed dosage, however nitrazepam 5 mg can be used as an alternative for people who have mild anxiety or insomnia. Nitrazepam 5 mg is also a good option for people who are particularly sensitive to medication or where a higher dose is contraindicated. Nitrazepam 20 mg is sometimes prescribed if your condition is severe or if you have built up a tolerance to the medication and you need a higher dose. If you are taking nitrazepam for sleep then you should take it around 30 to 60 minutes before you go to bed. Nitrazepam tablets should be swallowed whole and taken with a glass of water or juice. It is important that you do not crush the tablets in any way as this will result in the medication being absorbed too quickly which can be dangerous. If you are taking the medication for anxiety, your dosage schedule will depend on which type of anxiety you have. If you have GAD then most people take the appropriate dose in the morning and as it has such a long elimination-half life then redosing should not be necessary, unless you need to take it again to get to sleep. If you suffer from social anxiety, panic disorder, or phobias, then you should take it 30 minutes before entering a triggering situation or when you start to experience symptoms.
You can buy sleeping pills in the UK from our online pharmacy, however it is important to be aware of any potential side effects that may occur. Most people only experience mild side effects which go away on their own after a short period of time. Some of the more common nitrazepam side effects include:
If you feel drowsy or dizzy, you should not drive or use machinery. You should also avoid drinking alcohol as this can increase drowsiness and your chances of having an accident. Some people experience severe side effects, although this is rare. If you experience any of the following you should stop taking the medication and contact your GP:
Some people experience a severe allergic reaction called anaphylaxis or anaphylactic shock, although this is very rare. Symptoms of anaphylactic shock include the following:
If you have ever experienced anaphylaxis before you may have an epi-pen. If you do carry an epi-pen then you should inject it into your thigh muscle while you wait for medical assistance. Anaphylaxis is a medical emergency and will require treatment in hospital. If you have experienced anaphylaxis before then you should consult with your GP before taking medication to ensure it is safe for you to do so.
Benzodiazepines should be ideally used for the short-term management of symptoms if possible. If you are using the medication for insomnia, you should try and use it for the least number of days in each week. For example, you could take it for 3 out of 7 days per week and space the days out to reduce the likelihood of building up a tolerance to it. If your tolerance builds up, then you will not benefit to the same extent and you will need a higher dose to achieve the same results. You should also not exceed the maximum dose each day, which is 20 mg for most people. The longest nitrazepam should be taken for is 4 weeks as not much is known about the safety of long-term use. Using it for longer than 4 weeks will not only cause your tolerance to build up, but it can lead to physical dependence. Some people, however, do need to take it on a long-term basis due to chronic conditions such as anxiety. If you take it for longer than 4 weeks and on a daily basis, you should gradually reduce your dosage to reduce withdrawal symptoms.
Benzodiazepines are a different class of medication to zolpidem. Zolpidem is used for the treatment of insomnia, and although it has a very similar mechanism of action to benzodiazepines, their chemical structure is entirely different. They both target GABA receptors in the brain which secrete the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. This depresses the central nervous system by reducing certain signals in the brain as we explained earlier, causing relaxation and sedation. Zolpidem and other Z drugs can be used for the treatment of sleep-onset and transient insomnia, caused by jet lag, or working a mixture of day and night shifts for example. Nitrazepam has a longer elimination half-life so it is the preferred treatment option for sleep-maintenance insomnia. It can also be used for anxiety and a range of other conditions, whereas Z drugs are only licenced for insomnia.
Before you buy sleeping tablets online for the management of your insomnia or anxiety, you should consider whether this is the best option for you, particularly if you are ordering nitrazepam 20 mg. Good sleep hygiene should be the first line of treatment for insomnia as it can reset your circadian rhythm, also known as your sleep wake cycle. Sleep hygiene methods include going to bed at the same time every night, getting up at the same time each morning, and not using your phone or laptop in bed. If you wake up and cannot get back to sleep after about 10 minutes, then you should get up and do something relaxing such as reading until you feel tired again. Some people have circadian rhythm disorders however, and these methods may not be useful. If you are considering using medication to treat your anxiety symptoms there are other holistic techniques that you could try such as breathing exercises or keeping a journal to write down your worries. It can be helpful to try and set a certain time to worry each day, for example set aside 20 minutes in the evening and tell yourself 'I can worry about things during this time and then not again until tomorrow'. This method is recommended by psychologists along with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). This isn't enough for everyone though, and most people who suffer with insomnia and/or anxiety need to use medication alongside natural techniques.
Benzodiazepines are effective for the treatment of moderate to severe anxiety and insomnia. It is widely accepted that anxiety and insomnia can seriously impact an individual's quality of life and day-to-day functioning. This can have a knock-on effect and negatively affect other parts of your life, such as your home life or relationships at work. Anxiety and insomnia and the negative results of these conditions shouldn't have the power to define your life. You can take action and get some normality back to your daily life. Effective treatment can reduce stress, irritability, and improve your mental health.
