Description

Here are the key features:

Sedative-Hypnotic Properties: Zopiclone is a central nervous system depressant that works by enhancing the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter that inhibits brain activity, leading to sedation and sleep induction.

Insomnia Treatment: It is indicated for the short-term treatment of insomnia, typically for periods not exceeding two to four weeks, due to its potential for tolerance and dependence.

Dosage: Each tablet usually contains 7.5mg of zopiclone, the recommended starting dose for adults.

Rapid Onset of Action: Zopiclone typically induces sleep within 30 to 60 minutes after ingestion, making it suitable for individuals who have difficulty falling asleep.

Duration of Action: The sedative effects of zopiclone generally last for around 6 to 8 hours, promoting uninterrupted sleep throughout the night.

Minimal Daytime Sedation: Unlike some other sleep medications, zopiclone is designed to minimize residual sedation and cognitive impairment the next day, although individual responses may vary.

Caution with Alcohol: Consumption of alcohol while taking zopiclone can enhance its sedative effects and increase the risk of respiratory depression and accidents.

Avoidance of Long-Term Use: Due to the risk of tolerance, dependence, and rebound insomnia, zopiclone is generally not recommended for long-term use beyond the prescribed duration.

Side Effects: Common side effects may include bitter or metallic taste in the mouth, dry mouth, drowsiness, headache, and dizziness.

Withdrawal Symptoms: Abrupt discontinuation of zopiclone after prolonged use may result in withdrawal symptoms such as rebound insomnia, anxiety, agitation, and tremors.

Interaction with Other Medications: Zopiclone should be used cautiously with other central nervous system depressants, such as benzodiazepines and opioids, as it can potentiate their effects.

Always follow the guidance of a healthcare professional regarding the appropriate use, dosage, and potential side effects of zopiclone tablets, as individual circumstances may vary.
