Sleeping tablets, also known as sleeping pills or hypnotics, are medications that are designed to help people with insomnia or other sleep disorders fall asleep and stay asleep. They work by slowing down the activity of the brain, which can help to induce a state of relaxation and drowsiness.
There are different types of sleeping tablets, including benzodiazepines, non-benzodiazepines, and melatonin receptor agonists. Each type of medication works in a slightly different way and has its own set of benefits and potential side effects.
Travel sickness tablets, also known as motion sickness tablets, are medications that are designed to prevent or alleviate the symptoms of motion sickness, such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and sweating. Motion sickness can occur when the brain receives conflicting signals from the inner ear, eyes, and other sensory organs about the body's movement or position.
Travel sickness tablets work by reducing the activity of the vestibular system, which is responsible for controlling balance and spatial orientation. This can help to prevent or reduce the symptoms of motion sickness.
