Effects Of Not Sleeping For 24 Hours
What are the long term effects of sleep deprivation? Are there any long term side effects of substituing vivarin for sleep? Over the course of the past few months, i've averaged about 3-5 hours of sleep a day while taking vivarin. I don't feel very differ
This : This is really not a good idea. People really need at least 7 hours of sleep. The body just cannot work with such high levels of stress. If that really has been your schedule, you are severely sleep deprived right now. You cannot form normal sleep cycles in such a short period of time. I can assure you that your performance and your general health are both significantly reduced after doing that for a few months. You will build dependence to vivarin, (caffeine) and you will probably have long term health problems. I would highly suggest you find another way that allows you to get more sleep. Again, really not a good idea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Daily use of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for sleep aid on a 16 month old. Are there long term side effects?
Nothing major: Benadryl can alter the sleep pattern some with diminished time in deep (recuperative) sleep stage. I would never consider chronic use in an infant. I would encourage you to write down all your prior sleep related efforts along with what happens at bedtime.Bring this in to discuss with the kids doc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What are the long term effects of take massive am outs of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to help with sleep at night? I've been taking 500 to 800 mg doses every night.
Taper off!: You have likely become habituated to this medication. Putting multiple times recommended amounts of any substance or chemical is to be discouraged. There have been reports of overdoses with respiratory depression and hallucinations at high doses of benadryl (diphenhydramine). Your body will process what it can, store what it can't until you reach a toxic level. That level is different for everyone. ...Read more

You do not want to have your sleep cycle disrupted for any longer than this -- can lead to other problems in emotion regulation, concentration, etc. Please see your psychiatrist (or whoever prescribed the adderall) about this.

Is taking 11 sleeping pills in 5 consecutive nights safe? Thanks. Not being able to sleep from anxiety..
Depends: That sounds excessive but might be ok. I can't really tell without knowing what kind of sleeping pill you took. If it is an over-the-counter agent, most of those have Diphenhydramine as the active ingredient, and the usual dose is 25 mg. 11 of those over 5 days would mean 50 or 75 mg of Diphenhydramine nightly. This is not bad, but you should seek treatment for the underlying anxiety. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
