FAQs

Q. How long does it take for Fulnite to work?

Fulnite starts working shortly after you take it. The maximum levels of Fulnite are reached within an hour of taking it. Taking Fulnite may make you feel sleepy and sleepiness may persist for some time. This is the reason that you should prefer taking Fulnite immediately before you go to bed, or after you have gone to bed but could not fall asleep. Moreover, take Fulnite only if you know that you will be able to stay in bed for at least 7 to 8 hours after taking the medication.

Q. Does Fulnite have abuse potential?

Yes, Fulnite does have abuse potential. The risk of abuse increases with the dose and duration of treatment and concomitant use of other psychoactive drugs. The risk is also greater for patients who have a history of alcohol or drug abuse or history of psychiatric disorders.

Q. What are the symptoms of overdose of Fulnite?

An overdose of medicine can make you feel confused, drowsy, dizzy, and lightheaded. It may also lead to difficulty in breathing, floppy muscles (hypotonia), and loss of balance which may make you fall over. You may sleep deeply and possibly fall into a coma. The underlying reason of these symptoms could be low blood pressure due to overdose of Fulnite.

Q. How long should I take Fulnite?

Treatment should be as short as possible and should not exceed four weeks which includes the period of slowly decreasing the dose. For transient sleeplessness, the recommended duration is 2-5 days and for short lived sleeplessness duration should be 2-3 weeks.

Q. Can I drink alcohol with Fulnite?

Do not drink alcohol while you are taking Fulnite. Alcohol can increase the effects of Fulnite and make you sleep very deeply so that you do not breathe properly or have difficulty waking.

Q. Is Fulnite safe to take?

Yes, Fulnite is safe to take if taken at the prescribed dose and for a short duration (less than 4 weeks). If the dose and duration is increased then risk of abuse and dependence on the medicine is more likely to occur.

Q. Does Fulnite affect memory?

Memory impairment is rare, but may occur, especially when sleep is interrupted or there is a delay in going to bed after taking the tablet. Therefore to reduce such possibility of memory impairment, patients should ensure that they are taking the tablet when they are able to have a full night's sleep (uninterrupted sleep of about 7 to 8 hours).

Q. Can I drive after taking Fulnite?

Fulnite can cause slowing of your normal brain function (central nervous system depression) which may adversely affect the ability to drive or to use machines. It can be very unsafe if a patient drives within 12 hours of taking Fulnite.
