Nitrazepam is a drug from the group of benzodiazepines and is used for short-term treatment of insomnia. It is desirable to determine the cause of insomnia before you start the therapy. Nitrazepam works like all other benzodiazepines.
Nitrazepam should be used during pregnancy only when clearly needed. Forty three cases of pregnant women who have unsuccessfully tried to attempt suicide by taking large doses of Nitrazepam, have been reported. Of the forty three babies who were exposed to the drug, thirteen had congenital malformations while other thirty were born healthy
Nitrazepam during pregnancy can lead to the occurrence of dependence in newborns, and because of that they will experience withdrawal symptoms immediately after a birth. Use of this drug in the last trimester of pregnancy increases the risk of respiratory depression in the newborns.
