Sleeping Pills Are Safe For Consumption By The Elderly Who Take Antihypertensive Drugs?
Hello, I want to ask which sleeping medicine is safest and does not cause dependence for the elderly, huh? and safe to combine with hypertension drugs and bone vitamins
Hello Ainun, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Sleeping pills or drugs that can have a sedating (sleepy) effect in Indonesia fall into the category of hard drugs and have a high risk of causing dependence if used inappropriately according to medical regulations, so they are not traded freely, their use must be based on doctor's instructions and during use must be under the supervision of a prescribing physician by carrying out routine control as directed.
Apart from the above provisions, administration of sedation drugs to the elderly must also be based on a prior examination by a doctor and there must be a clear indication of their administration due to administration of sedation drugs to the elderly, especially those who have experienced various other disorders such as high blood pressure, diabetes, impaired function kidney, and others, are very high risk if not based on clear considerations from the doctor and also the use of inappropriate doses.
For now, if you really feel the patient needs sleeping pills for any reason, you should first ask the doctor who is treating him for examination and consideration based on his condition, whether the patient really needs sedation medicine or not.
It is highly not recommended that you give / force to buy sedation drugs based on your own decision without clear instructions from your doctor.
I hope this helps.
