Waking up confused is now called 'sleep drunkenness'; how long until we can buy a pill for that?

(NaturalNews) Infectious disease medicine and psychiatry have motivated Big Pharma with incentives to provide pills for everything real or imaginary. And only America and New Zealand allow TV advertising with Big Pharma's inventions for often made-up diseases.

The made-up diseases or maladies that motivate all these often dangerous, usually ineffective chemical creations range from restless leg syndrome to restless kids. Now, even toddlers are prescribed Ritalin.

Now, a new label for a claimed disorder is out -- sleep drunkenness. It's not about going to sleep drunk. It simply describes a state of confusion upon awakening. Hurry, gotta get a pill for that.

Never mind that one of Big Pharma's sleeplessness or insomnia remedies has people sleep walking, sleep driving, cooking and eating asleep crazy stuff, or doing whatever, even killing people and not remembering.

It's called Ambien, and it's the number one prescribed sleeping pill on the market. What's next, Big Pharma? Maybe something for sleep drunkenness?

They even did a study on sleep drunkenness

A new study conducted at the Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, California, determined that one in seven Americans suffer from intense confusion upon being awakened.

But here's the kicker, 84 percent of them had other sleep disorders, a mental health issue, or were on psychotropic drugs like antidepressants.

The study, published August 26, 2014, in the journal Neurology surveyed over 19,000 adults about their sleeping habits to filter out sleep drunkenness episodes and determine their one out of seven number.

But although one out of seven did experience at least one episode of "confusional arousal," very few appear to have sleep drunkenness as a chronic condition. They just have those other chronic sleep disorders and psychiatric conditions with their psychiatric meds.

In other words, almost all of those who experienced sleep drunkenness or "confusional arousal" had other underlying conditions and/or were on psychiatric pharmaceuticals or used sleeping pills. Bottom line, most "confusional arousal" episodes are likely iatrogenic (caused by medical treatments).

The confusion is rarely severe. But, once, a man walked off the deck of a ship at sea and drowned just after being awakened. It's often not so serious, like bopping a bed mate upon being awakened. After all, during "confusional arousal," one doesn't know where one is for a moment.

Those few who don't suffer from any of the known sleep disorders -- such as restless leg syndrome, which keeps people awake -- or who don't use psychiatric drugs often have "confusional arousal" episodes while napping with jet lag or when they have gotten too much or too little sleep.

The researchers determined that not enough sleep was usually under six hours and too much sleep was over nine hours. But sleep being interrupted often can create the same confused state of temporarily not knowing where you are as well.

Waking up from a wicked nightmare while sweating out a high fever can leave one confused enough to be delirious. Then there's awakening from sleeping off last night's alcohol drunkenness with that fog or memory blank.

So, really, what's the big deal about this study and its findings? There are automatic survival instincts at play. Ever suddenly wake up a dog that snaps viciously and then becomes apologetic upon realizing that it snapped at or bit you?

It's a very small percentage, 15 percent in this study, who experience sleep drunkenness; even among those who do, it can be very occasional. Some of the 19,136 people surveyed reported only one episode in the last year

And 84 percent of that 15 percent were among those who had pre-existing sleep disorders or were using psychiatric pharmaceuticals. Hey, Big Pharma, we don't want any more of your stinking pills.
