Welcome to HCM
Night shift workers suffer problem of insomnia due to change in their circadian rhythm. In order to regulate their sleep a lot of medicines are approved.
Medicines like Benzodiazepines as clonazepam
, alprazolam or other hypnotics as Zolpidem, Zopiclone
can be used. But they have dependence potential so please take these drugs in consultation with a Psychiatrist
Other medicines that correct the circadian rhythm as Ramelteon
can also be used. Ramelteon is even approved for use in shift worker disease. It is a non addicting medicine and it corrects the disturbed rhythm.
Please visit a Psychiatrist for expert opinion.
