Sleeping pills are a class of sedatives that act on the central nervous system and help a person fall asleep quickly.
There are a few types of medicines that can produce sedative effects. Examples are antidepressants, barbiturates, and benzodiazepines.
Benzodiazepines are the most commonly used anxiolytics and hypnotics. Some Benzodiazepines are used to relieve anxiety, alcohol withdrawal, panic disorders and certain seizures disorders.
Most anxiolytics (eg. alprazolam, clonazepam, diazepam, lorazepam) will induce sleep when given at night and most hypnotics (eg. midazolam, zolpidem) will sedate when given during the day
