Midanium is the brand name for Midazolam which is classified as a benzodiazepine class medication. Midanium is also sold under the names Dormicum, Midacum, Versed and Midanium in South Africa as a prescribed drug used for many anxieties, anaesthetic, seizures related disorders.
Facts on anxiety, anaesthetic, seizures medications
Midanium is schedule 5 controlled substance classed as benzodiazepine used for anxiety, anaesthetic, seizures. This elevated scheduling in South Africa means that any medical professionals prescribing or dispensing benzodiazepines like (Midanium, Dormicum, Midacum, Versed and Midanium) which contain Midazolam must maintain a national name registry record of prescription allocations as it is controlled substance in South African law.
The reason for this high scheduling for Midazolam, Dormicum, Midacum, Versed and Midanium and other benzodiazepines is because psychotropic medications like Midanium effect on the chemical composition of the brain and nervous system and are thus capable of affecting your emotions, mind and behaviours.
Psychotropic compounds like Midazolam show addictive properties (even if used as directed) and may impair or impede cognitive functioning. In consequence, Midanium should only be administered as suggested by your medical doctor.
Mixing Midanium with other drugs or alcohol has the potential to cause adverse reactions that further increases the likelihood of overdoses or even death.
What does Midanium do?
Midanium adheres to benzodiazepine receptors in your nervous system and brain. This boosts the production of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) chemicals. This process produces a calming effect in your brain. Midazolam is a central nervous system depressant and it may be prescribed as hypnotic medication.
Seeing as how the intent of Midanium suppresses your bodies nervous system and you are able to enter more relaxed states of being. This relaxation is the main drawcard for many people who have underlying or constant states of anxiety or stress inside their day to day life that cause anxiety, anaesthetic, seizures conditions.
Unfortunately, it will not take you long to conclude that medications will work for reducing many anxieties, anaesthetic, seizures symptoms. Thus many individuals inadvertently become addicted to Midanium even using it as directed by your doctor. The tolerance to and withdrawal cycle from Midazolam builds itself relatively quickly thus so does the pressure for upping the recommended dose beyond that of the prescription.
Midanium used to treat anxiety, anaesthetic, seizures
Many patients that struggle with anxiety, anaesthetic, seizures can find short to medium term relief in Midazolam (Midanium, Dormicum, Midacum, Versed and Midanium) prescriptions. In many cases, benzodiazepines like Midanium are a only a short-term solution that should be employed alongside psychotherapy and lifestyle changes to best manage the underlying causes of anxiety, anaesthetic, seizures conditions. This may include more sustainable changes to your sleep, mental health and diet.
Midanium is taken orally in a suspension or tablet form. Most modern benzodiazepines come in two formats, short-release and long-release. In many cases, Midanium will stay in your bloodstream for as much as 10 days or five “half-lives” to metabolise Midazolam from the body. Short acting benzodiazepines have a short half-life meaning that they are processed more quickly and leave your body more quickly. Conversely, long-acting benzodiazepines take longer to be metabolised by the body.
Midanium Withdrawal and Detox
Even when used as prescribed, Midanium can cause emotional or physical dependence/addiction. Once the addiction cycle begins, your body will need to keep taking Midanium to prevent the withdrawal symptoms. Midanium can have a potentially dangerous withdrawal so you should never try to go “cold turkey” and should seek the advice of a professional before attempting to withdrawal from Midanium. Depending on how much Midanium you are on, sudden withdrawal can spark a coma, seizure, and other potentially fatal scenarios.
