Dangers Of Sleeping Pills?
I want to ask. u003cbr u003e I bought a sleeping pill called Trivam Propofol (25ml) in Bukalapak to make me fall asleep easily and not be disturbed at all, because lately I have been very stressed and my mind is everywhere, so I can’t sleep. Even though it was late and lying in bed, I could not sleep for hours later. U003cbr u003e However, I read in an English article that the drug was also used for anesthesia for patients during surgery. Does that mean the medicine is really strong? until for example being stabbed with a knife doesn’t feel anything when you are asleep / sedated? Then he said to drink alone (mixed with drinking water) so that he can sleep soundly and just started sleeping 5-15 minutes after drinking. u003cbr u003eIs this drug dangerous, and if I try to use it, what are the side effects on my body, and if I am still curious to try, what dose is it for me to be 20 years old body weight 53? thanks.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Propofol is a sedation hypnotic drug that is given by injecting it into a vein. This drug is used for induction of anesthesia before surgery. This drug is a hard drug that should not be used carelessly, it should only be used by health professionals who are experts in using it. This medicine CANNOT be used as a sleeping pill. Although it is used to induce sleep, sleep caused by propofol is not like normal sleep (sleep is not deep and only lasts for a short time), therefore in surgery this drug is not only given for induction, but is also given continuously along with the drug other so that someone can survive sleep during surgery.
This drug is a drug that has the potential to cause death if not used properly. Propofol injected into a blood vessel has the potential to cause side effects in the form of a decrease in blood pressure, a weak and fast heart rate, decreased breathing to stop breathing. Therefore this drug really must be used with caution.
This drug will not have any effect when used by mouth / taken (will not cause drowsiness or sleep). This drug will soon be metabolized and lose its effect if taken directly. We recommend that you do not use drugs like this let alone buy it in an unclear place. You never know whether the drug has been mixed with other drugs that are dangerous if you take it.
If indeed you have trouble sleeping, you can consult directly with your doctor so that you can be given more appropriate sleeping pills. You can read the following article about insomnia and how to overcome insomnia to find solutions to overcome your sleep disorders.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
