Hello Lybrate user, I note that you are worried about size and self stimulation. Ok. Bust really the size doesn't matter as long as you have a strong libido andover and affection with your partner to achieve orgasm. Your size is enough.

Molecules Roles They Play In Sleep!

Molecules Roles They Play In Sleep!

Benzodiazepines are a family of molecules, some of which are used as sleep-inducing medications, while others are used as tranquilizers. 
Benzodiazepines bind to a specific site on a neuron’s receptor for GABA, a neurotransmitter that counteracts the brain’s wakefulness mechanisms. Thus benzodiazepines promote sleep by augmenting this natural process.

The same gabaergic receptor also has binding sites that can be used both by barbiturates (a class of drugs once commonly used as sleep aids but now almost never used for that purpose) and by anesthetics, whose purpose is to put surgical patients to sleep.

Molecules that build up and make you sleep

As each day draws to a close, you feel the need to lie down and go to sleep. The onset of sleep, which seems like such a simple phenomenon from a behavioral perspective, is actually quite complex from a molecular one.
In the early 20th century, French psychologist Henri piéron hypothesized that prolonged wakefulness causes the build-up of a “sleep toxin" that is subsequently broken down during sleep. To test his hypothesis, piéron walked dogs through Paris at night to prevent them from sleeping. He then injected their cerebrospinal fluid into the brains of other dogs. He found that these other dogs then slept longer and more deeply than usual.

We now know that the “hypnogenic” (sleep-inducing) substances that piéron hypothesized do in fact exist. Some of them are small protein molecules that are produced by brain structures such as the hypothalamus and that inhibit the neurons of the wakefulness system.

But these proteins are not the only hypnogenic molecules. The build-up of serotonin in certain parts of the brain during periods of wakefulness also contributes to the onset of sleep. The serotonin level in certain areas of the brain also affects mood. That is why some problems such as depression and anxiety often lead to sleep disorders. People with low serotonin levels also tend to spend less time in restorative non-rem sleep over the course of the night.

Serotonin also plays an important role in sleep because the body uses it to synthesize melatonin. Melatonin is produced at night and plays a fundamental role in regulating the body’s biological clock. In fact, melatonin governs the entire sleep/wake cycle, whereas serotonin is involved more specifically in wakefulness, in triggering sleep, and in rem sleep.

Diagram of a melatonin molecule-
 (atoms: pale blue = carbon, dark blue = nitrogen, red = oxygen,
White = hydrogen)
Thus sleep is triggered by two inter-related processes: the production and build-up of hypnogenic substances in the body while we are awake, and cyclical fluctuations in substances such as melatonin that are associated with our body’s biological clock. 

Among the hypnogenic substances that build up while we are awake, adenosine has been the subject of much discussion since the mid-1990s.

I am 34 lady suffering from ringworm in my inner thigh areas and under my breasts. I had been using zimig tablets as well as cream for a week now. Before I had used candid cream. I do not see any result.in fact it is spreading like sea. It's making me very depressed and frustrating. What should I do please help?

You please try fluconazole 200 mg tablets one daily with breakfast for first 3 days continuously and weekly for 4 weeks. Use lignocaine 2% gel (lidocaine jelly) over lesion and antifungal gel cream. Get your blood sugar checked and hba1c as well. Please post again of outcome. Get a prescription from your local doctor.

Are there any drug interactions between opipramol 50 mg and vilazodone (ssri. Can they both be taken concomitantly by the patient. If interactions exist, which ssri can be taken with opipramol? Looking forward to receiving your valuable inputs!

Ssri and tca have reaction potentiaying each other, although opipramol is said to have less potent. And you can land inserotonin syndrome if potency of ssri is increased by tca. Please stop one of them so that you benefit from one of them. Don't add another antidepressant if you are on opipramol.

You can, but better to take a standard dose or stop it. Or go for sr inj once a month where you can take 50 or 25 or less on a monthly basis.

Hello Sir, Me roj raat ko 2 tablet zapiz 0.5 mg le raha hu kya isse koi nuksaan tou nai h.
Dose jada nahi karna. Usliye tum drugfree programme karna chahiye. Nuksan drugs se bahut hota hai.
