Introduction

Zolcent 5mg Tablet is a prescription medicine used for short term treatment of insomnia. It reduces sleep onset time and frequent awakening at night. This medicine improves sleep maintenance and therefore ensures sound sleep.

Zolcent 5mg Tablet should be taken on an empty stomach, preferably just before going to bed. However, it is advised to take it at the same time each day as this helps to maintain a consistent level of medicine in the body. Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor as it is habit-forming. Do not stop taking it suddenly without talking to your doctor as it may worsen your symptoms.

Some common side effects of this medicine include memory loss, hallucinations, agitation, headache, vertigo, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and back pain. It may also cause fatigue, stomach pain, double vision, and depression. However, these are temporary and resolve on their own after some time. Please consult your doctor if these bother you or do not away.

Zolcent 5mg Tablet also causes dizziness and sleepiness, so do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus until you know how this medicine affects you and do not take alcohol with it as it may worsen the dizziness. Inform your doctor if you develop any unusual changes in mood or behavior, new or worsening depression, hallucinations, or suicidal thoughts while taking this medicine.

Before taking Zolcent 5mg Tablet, inform your doctor about all other medicines that you are taking, so that your doctor can advise if taking this medicine is right for you.
