FAQs

Q. How long does Zomnia take to work?

Zomnia starts working slowly and continues to work for a short time even after you stop taking it. You may experience more benefit from Zomnia on the second and third nights after you start taking it. You may continue to feel the effects of Zomnia for one to two nights after you stop taking the medication.

Q. Does Zomnia cause addiction?

Addiction is more likely to occur in patients who are alcoholics or drug addicts. Such patients should be under careful surveillance if they have been prescribed Zomnia.

Q. Is Zomnia a sleeping pill?

Zomnia is used for the short-term treatment of sleeplessness (also known as insomnia) when it is severe. It can help overcome difficulties in falling asleep and may help if you wake up frequently in the middle of the night. Zomnia helps you to sleep but does not cure the underlying cause of your insomnia, which you should discuss with your doctor.

Q. What if you take more than the recommended dose of Zomnia?

Taking more than the recommended dose of Zomnia may cause drowsiness, confusion, tiredness, difficulty in speaking, trouble in coordinating movements (ataxia), breathing difficulty, and impaired vision. Excess of Zomnia may rarely cause coma (loss of consciousness for a period of time) and very rarely death. If you have taken too much of Zomnia, you should immediately seek medical attention in a nearby hospital or contact your doctor.

Q. I am unable to sleep even after taking Zomnia. Should I repeat the dose or stop it?

No, do not repeat the dose or stop taking Zomnia by yourself. In case you are unable to sleep after taking Zomnia, consult your doctor. Your doctor may adjust the dose of Zomnia depending on the severity of insomnia and response to treatment.

Q. Is Zomnia habit forming?

Zomnia can be habit forming if you use higher than the recommended doses or for a longer period of time. It can lead to both physical and psychological dependence. This is particularly common in patients with a history of alcoholism or drug abuse or in patients with marked personality disorders. Regular monitoring in such patients is essential. Regular and repetitive use of Zomnia should be avoided and treatment should be withdrawn gradually.

Q. What are the withdrawal effects of Zomnia?

Abrupt discontinuation of Zomnia may lead to withdrawal symptoms. These may include recurrence of sleep problems, depression, nervousness, extreme anxiety, tension, restlessness, and confusion. You may also experience mood changes, irritability, sweating, diarrhea, headache and muscle weakness.

Q. Will taking Zomnia affect my performance the next day?

Zomnia may cause side effects such as reduced alertness, confusion, tiredness, dizziness, poor muscle coordination and double vision in some patients. This may affect the patients' performance at skilled tasks (driving, operating machinery, etc.) to a varying degree depending upon dosage, administration, and sleep pattern and individual response. Discuss with your doctor if you have any concerns regarding the side effects affecting your performance.
