Any per­son some­times has peri­ods when there are many dif­fer­ent prob­lems and dif­fi­cul­ties: at work, in per­son­al life, with chil­dren. And often a mis­for­tune does not come alone, along with prob­lems anoth­er one leans on a per­son — insom­nia. After a night with­out sleep, he gets up tired and over­whelmed, can­not con­cen­trate, work, pay enough atten­tion to chil­dren. In this case, in order to calm the dis­turbed ner­vous sys­tem and avoid sleep dis­tur­bances, many doc­tors rec­om­mend tak­ing seda­tives.

The drugs of this group enhance the process­es of inhi­bi­tion, weak­en­ing the process­es of exci­ta­tion. Thanks to the intake of drugs from this group, sleep becomes deep­er, stronger and more refresh­ing. Against the back­ground of tak­ing these drugs, a per­son becomes calm, less irri­tat­ed over tri­fles.

Seda­tive or seda­tive drugs are divid­ed into drugs of plant and chem­i­cal ori­gin.

For herbal prepa­ra­tions groups of seda­tive drugs relate:

    rhizomes and roots of valerian,
    flowering tops of motherwort grass,
    shoots with passionflower grass leaves and others.

To enhance the seda­tive effect, var­i­ous essen­tial oils and alka­loids are includ­ed in the com­po­si­tion of these drugs. These drugs are avail­able both in the form of tablets and in the form of tinc­tures.

The fact that the tinc­ture sug­gests the pres­ence of eth­yl alco­hol in the com­po­si­tion should alert vehi­cle dri­vers. It is bet­ter to take tinc­tures when you have already returned home and do not plan more car trips dur­ing the day. For the same rea­son, tinc­tures are not indi­cat­ed for preg­nant and lac­tat­ing women.

It must be remem­bered that even herbal prepa­ra­tions are not as harm­less as they seem, and in case of an over­dose they can pro­voke depres­sion of con­scious­ness, dis­rup­tion of the ner­vous sys­tem. There­fore, it is nec­es­sary to observe the dosage indi­cat­ed in the instruc­tions for the med­ical use of the drug.

There are var­i­ous com­bi­na­tion med­i­cines con­tain­ing both herbs and oth­er active sub­stances that have a seda­tive effect. Names such as Novopas­sit, Persen, Ger­bion, Pas­si­fit are known to many and are sold in phar­ma­cies with­out a pre­scrip­tion.

Some trace ele­ments also have a seda­tive effect. For exam­ple, one of the best known is mag­ne­sium. Prepa­ra­tions, which include mag­ne­sium (mag­ne­sium sul­fate, polymin­er­al com­plex­es), will help a per­son to more eas­i­ly endure dif­fi­cult peri­ods of life, ful­ly relax dur­ing a night’s sleep and not be ner­vous over tri­fles.

How­ev­er, some­times herbal prepa­ra­tions, prepa­ra­tions that include mag­ne­sium, do not have the nec­es­sary ther­a­peu­tic effect, and to nor­mal­ize sleep, the doc­tor may pre­scribe drug ther­a­py with more seri­ous drugs (which include bromine, phe­no­bar­bi­tal). How­ev­er, many of these drugs with­out a pre­scrip­tion can­not be bought at a phar­ma­cy and a spe­cial­ist must con­trol their intake, so self-med­ica­tion with them is high­ly unde­sir­able.
