Psychiatric Medicines Induce Sleepiness All Day?
Many people are under the impression that psychiatric medicines induce sleepiness all day. Dr. Save says, “This is one of the commonest myths as many psychotropic medications may cause drowsiness in the first few days. All psychotropic medications are made to work at specific neurotransmitters or receptors. The newer ones have a better adverse effect profile. There is a vast choice of medications available to suit an individual’s needs. Sleeping medications are to be prescribed only if required and that too for a limited period of time. Most of the sleep-related issues can be solved simply by getting up at a constant time every day.”
