How Does Stilnox 10mg Work?
Stilnox 10mg (Zolpidem) is a useful medication that is available as a prescription sleep aid to treat insomnia.It accounts for about 85 percent of the prescribed sleeping pills. It works as a hypnotic drug, meaning that it induces a state of unconsciousness, similar to what occurs in natural sleep.
Like most sleep aids, Stilnox has only modest effects on the amount of measurable additional sleep it provides. For example, research suggests that it only adds about 29 minutes of total sleep time on average when taken. It may allow a person to fall asleep faster by just 5 to 12 minutes.
What does it do then? It affects chemical messengers in the brain called neurotransmitters. By affecting a neurotransmitter called GABA, it can calm the activity of specific parts of the brain. One of the areas that may be affected is the hippocampus. Along with other regions of the brain, the hippocampus is important in the formation of memory. You may need Dilaudid 8mg.
