FDA Requires Lower Doses of Sleeping Drugs, While Natural Insomnia Remedies Exist

Certain sleeping drugs have been linked to impaired alertness and car accidents, and require a lower dosage. At the same time, natural insomnia remedies are available.

2013-01-21
GLENDALE, CA, January 21, 2013 (Press-News.org) The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced it is requiring users of the insomnia drug Ambien and its generic counterparts (all drugs containing the active ingredient zolpidem), to take a lower recommended dose of these medications. They are particularly aiming this toward women, as the drug stays in their system much longer than with men. Women at the time of menopause frequently have sleep problems and insomnia, and some may turn to sleep medications.

Ellis Unger, M.D., director of the Office of Drug Evaluation in the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research said: "Over the years FDA has received spontaneous adverse event reports of driving impairment and motor vehicle accidents associated with zolpidem, but these reports lacked the information necessary to fully understand whether and how zolpidem affected people's mental alertness and ability to drive. Recently, data from clinical trials and other types of studies have become available, which allowed FDA to better characterize the risk of next-morning impairment."

Along the lines of natural insomnia remedies, nature has provided us with some natural sleep aids and relaxants that have stood the test of time. Regarding mineral deficiency as we age and at the time of menopause, the pioneering nutritionist Adelle Davis says, "The amount of calcium in a woman's blood parallels the activity of the ovaries. During the menopause, the lack of ovarian hormones (estrogen and progesterone) can cause severe calcium deficiency symptoms to occur, including irritability, hot flashes, night sweats, leg cramps, and insomnia. These problems can be easily overcome if the intakes of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D are all generously increased and are well absorbed."

Chronic insomnia is one of the main symptoms of magnesium deficiency. Sleeping with a magnesium deficiency is usually agitated, with frequent nighttime awakenings. On the other hand, a high magnesium diet has been found to be associated with deeper, less interrupted sleep. This was shown in a study done by James Penland at the Human Nutrition Research Center in North Dakota.

One natural sleep aid that is gaining in popularity is Sleep Minerals II from Nutrition Breakthroughs. It contains highly absorbable forms of calcium and magnesium, the best minerals for sleeplessness and insomnia, as well as for restless leg syndrome, bone strength, aches and pains, and menopause insomnia. The formula also includes vitamin D and zinc and is delivered in a softgel form with healthy carrier oils, making the minerals more quickly assimilated than tablets or capsules. The softgel formulation provides a deeper, longer-lasting sleep and is an effective alternative to medications.

A. R. of Ramseur, North Carolina says: "Sleep Minerals II has been a blessing for me. It has given me the opportunity to withdraw from a highly addictive sleep medication over time, and has allowed me to sleep while going through this most difficult ordeal. What's great about it is it doesn't lose its effectiveness, which is something that happens with sleep medications. I am most thankful for this product."
