Can Sleeping Tablets Damage KidneysSleeping tablets have become a common method to deal with insomnia for most people. However, as a kidney disease patient, you may also experience insomnia which refers to poor quality sleeping. In this condition, can you take sleeping pills to improve your sleeping quality?

First, let’s see that how insomnia occurs in kidney failure?

People with kidney disease have often trouble falling asleep in night. Why? Since they are diagnosed with kidney failure, there are more or less decreased renal function. Along with the gradual decline of renal function, a large amount of waste products and toxins will accumulate in the body. Thus patients will suffer different discomforts during the onset of illness, including restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea, itching, bad emotion, caffeine, and inadequate dialysis clearance. These factors all have bad effect on your sleeping.

In such condition, we can see that the primary cause of insomnia is damage kidney function. Therefore, eating sleeping tablets is not enough for improving your sleeping quality. I don’t deny sleeping pills are a good choice for a short-time treatment. But it’s my duty to tell you that it is not suggested to take for a long time.

If you can not find an alternative treatment, you may face the following the problems:

--You may depend on these pills for the rest of life and the dosage will become larger and larger.

--You may suffer a series of side effects like nausea, vomiting, fatigue and so on.

--it can also increase the burden of kidney and cause further kidney damage.

Then, is there any alternative treatment for treating insomnia?
