Zopiclone Tablet 7.5mg are sleeping pills (hypnotics) which work by acting on the brain to cause sleepiness. Zopiclone works by inducing sleepiness, reducing anxiety and relaxing muscles. It may be used for short term treatment of difficulties in falling asleep, waking up at night or early in the morning or difficulty in sleeping caused by events, situations or mental illness, which is severe, disabling or causing great distress.
How does it work?
Zopiclone decreases the time taken to fall asleep and night-time awakenings, as well as increasing the total amount of time spent sleeping. However, it is only suitable for short-term treatment of insomnia (up to four weeks), as when used for longer periods it has a potential for dependence and addiction.
The medicine should be taken shortly before going to bed for the night.
