Normison history and info
Normison (Restoril) is an intermediate acting benzodiazepine, approved for the short-term treatment of insomnia. Chronic use of Normison can cause drug tolerance and this can develop rapidly, therefore Normison is only recommended for short-term use (1-2 weeks). In use longer than 1-2 weeks, tolerance to Normison will rapidly develop, causing the inability of Normison to maintain sleep. Some studies have shown tolerance to Normison can occur in as little as one week, whereas other studies showed no issue of tolerance in 6 days.
Normison is a powerful hypnotic benzodiazepine that has strong sedative, amnesic (memory disturbance) and motor impairing properties. In addition, Normison also has anti-anxiety, anticonvulsant and skeletal muscle relaxant qualities.
Benzodiazepines are widely used for a variety of conditions including anxiety and insomnia, but also for muscle tightness, pre-surgical sedation, detoxification from alcohol and the anxiety experienced with cardiovascular or gastrointestinal conditions.
Benzodiazepines primary mode of action is on GABA (gamma-aminobutryic acid), the most common receptor in the nervous system. GABA is a neurotransmitter that is the cornerstone of the inhibitory (calming) system of the body, and controls the action of epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine. The main function of GABA is to prevent anxiety and stress-related messages from reaching the motor centers of the brain. They regulate excitability, including the seizure threshold. The brain must balance the excitatory and calming influences. Excessive excitation can lead to seizures, insomnia, anxiety and other clinical conditions; whereas excessive inhibition results in incoordination, sedation and anesthesia.
Benzodiazepines, barbiturates and alcohol all act on GABA, and chronic use down-regulates and modify the GABA receptors, which in turn causes dependence. With continued use of Benzodiazepines, the calming effect of GABA is diminished while the excitatory neurotransmitter Glutamate, is increased. Glutamate is always an excitatory neurotransmitter, and GABA is what counters this action. As GABA is initially enhanced by Benzodiazepines, the brain’s output of excitatory neurotransmitters, including Norepinephrine (noradrenalin), Serotonin, Acetyl Choline and Dopamine are reduced. These neurotransmitters are necessary for alertness, muscle tone, coordination, memory, emotional responses, endocrine gland hormones, heart rate, blood pressure control and other functions. As a result, all these may be impaired by Benzodiazepines.
Additional receptors for Benzodiazepines (non-GABA) are located in the colon, kidney, blood cells and adrenal cortex, and therefore may also be affected by Benzodiazepines. These actions are responsible for the well-known side effects and adverse reactions.
