Diseases That Can Be Caused By Taking Sedatives?
good afternoon doctor, sorry to disturb, I’m doing research about this for some interest. well, I want to know, what serious illnesses can be caused by taking sedatives? especially if you suddenly stop consumption after all this time dependence?
Thank you for the question.
Sedatives in the medical realm are called sedatives. There are many drugs that are classified as sedatives, for example:
Benzodiazepines, such as diazepam, alprazolam
Barbiturates, such as phenobarbital
Hypnotics, like zolpidem
Opioids, such as oxycodone, hydrocodone / acetaminophen, and so on
Depending on the type of drug in question, the side effects can also vary. But generally, long-term use of sedatives can cause addiction. Side effects of tranquilizers can be classified into 2, namely:
Short-term side effects, such as drowsiness, dizziness, blurred vision, impaired vision perception, slowed reflexes, slower breathing, difficulty focusing, difficulty remembering, difficulty speaking fluently
Long-term side effects, such as forgetfulness, weakness, fatigue, symptoms of depression or excessive anxiety, liver disorders, and withdrawal symptoms when suddenly stopped (such as excessive anxiety, difficulty sleeping, restlessness, irritability)
Therefore, all types of sedatives are not included in the free group, and their use must be carried out on the advice of a doctor or psychiatrist.
That's all our explanation. More information for your research needs, you should explore again by reading a lot of books or medical scientific journals.
I hope this helps.
