Appropriately treating insomnia with triazolam

Journal of Psychoactive Drugs
V L Martin


Insomnia is a problem that extends beyond the nighttime. People who experience sleep disturbances complain that they stay awake for a long time before they fall asleep. They may wake up several times during the night and cannot return to sleep and/or they wake up early in the morning. As a result, they feel sleepy during the day and are less alert. Various forms of insomnia are described that require--as much as possible--an individualized treatment approach. Besides sleeping hygiene, benzodiazepines certainly occupy a place in the treatment of insomnia. Triazolam, a triazolobenzodiazepine, closely approaches the characteristics of an ideal hypnotic: pharmacological activity at the level of the receptors, moderate absorption, short-acting, and rapid elimination. It is effective and safe if prescribed correctly and at the appropriate dosage.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.
