If everyone that had a bad Stilnox experience actually reported it…it would surely be taken off the market

When I first read that our so called London swimming heroes, James Magnussen, Eamon Sullivan, Matt Targett, Tommaso D’Orsogna and Cameron McEvoy the guys we chose over hundreds of other swimming hopefuls to represent our country, were running around being total morons in a lead up – one would have presumed involved healthy dinners, early nights and training, I was not the only one to think things that wouldn’t be polite to share here.

When I heard they’d all dropped a few Stilnox’s washed down by their favourite energy drinks, I knew immediately why these idiots had run amok.  They took the drug Stilnox knowing damn well that they were going to start feeling and acting weirdly because it’s a fact that this is what it does for many consumers.

This is a drug that continues to survive on the market, even though it’s reputation is that it can be a very creepy, sinister, mind altering so called answer to a peaceful nights’ sleep.

The media loves to talk about the ‘faceless men’ behind high profile companies or political parties but I’d like to know who the faceless people are behind this drug company so I could ask them ‘so how do you sleep at night?’  I’m pretty sure the answer would not be ‘with the help of Stilnox actually.’

I spoke to Federal President of the AMA, Steve Hambleton, who explains how drugs and our market works; ‘The Therapeutive Goods Administration is the agency that registers drugs for the market and at times de-registers them. They do collect the adverse drug reaction reports and they go through them and make sure the balance between safety and adverse affects is appropriate for our marketing.  The TGA says things like ‘this drug does what it says it does’ and they then publish the product information that the prescribers use to say when I’m going to a new product, here are the trials, here are the successes. Here are the things to watch out for. They’re not so much looking at the media reports but any individual person that’s had an adverse reaction to a drug, any drug or a vaccine, we do need to collect that information because we do come back to looking at particular agents or products, those adverse reactions are looked at.  And if they are cause and affect there is a strong case to take that product off the market.’

So here’s what it comes down to, when people that are genuinely needing help at a particular time in their lives with sleeping, and they are prescribed Stilnox, they are presuming that it must be ok as a doctor has suggested it.  They are further cemented with a feeling of re-assurance that the bad reports must be a beat up, because another pillar of society, the pharmacist has handed it over with a brief warning.

What you don’t know however is if you are going to be one of the larger numbers than I believe are reported, who may have a very odd experience, often dangerous while on this drug.

We’ve heard the bad press in regards to Stilnox but believe me, there’s many more issues not reported out there.  So I ask why is it still on the market?

Apart from the drug industry being a multi billion-dollar business making a whole lot of people very, very wealthy, a fact more people should contemplate before becoming so loyal to so much medication, if the thing stopping this drug being taken off the market is more people needing to make individual reports, then we’ve got a hurdle.

No one likes to own up to something they’ve done when it’s really weird.  No one wants to share information about them behaving inappropriately or illegally under the influence of drugs.  Certainly not when they’re not the trippy drug taking type.

We seem to have a good social conscious these days if a well known identity says or does the wrong thing, sponsors running a mile, so why aren’t we doing the same when it comes to prescription drugs and our own moral compass?

  1. As a health professional, I’ve observed the short and long term effects of Stilnox misuse. It can be a devastating drug and it boggles my comprehension that this group could have been so stupid.

    These are not people who should be considered heroes or even upstanding members of the community.

      • Hi Amber,

        Yeah – the effects have been similar to bad acid trips – hallucinations, paranoia, panic attacks and a kind of reverse insomnia – where overdoses make it difficult for the user to wake up. Some of these reactions can and have been known to be irreversible. Aside from that are the gastro-intestinal effects – nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and the like. Dehydration, fluid and electrolyte imbalances which can lead into other problems.

        Stilnox is not a drug that should be messed with.

        x Dean.

        • Yep, agreed – I think it also makes people depressed and breaks down their immune system. Of course they’d argue that but I am very sensitive to my own body and I know that I could feel both those things happen directly around taking that stupid, sinister drug

  2. Indeed – depression and immunological effects can be among the most harmful effects.

    The line “I know my own body and I can identify the effects when they are happening” is so infuriating. I wish I could shake them and possibly re create that scene from Flying High where the passengers are lining up with baseball bats, boxing gloves and basket balls to slap some sense into the lady having a panic attack – with the idiots I have seen who argue their expertise is better than mine.

    There is nothing more horrifying than seeing a patient physically meltdown on a gurney.
