Nitrest 10 MG Description

Nitrest Tablet is a medication used in the treatment of sleep-related problems, which may be severely upsetting and may also interfere with the quality of everyday life. This could include the inabil

ity to fall asleep, awakening at night or waking up too early. Nitrest contains the active ingredient called zolpidem tartrate, which belongs to the class of medicines called hypnotics. It primarily acts on the CNS(central nervous system) to help one sleep. A thorough evaluation to identify the sleep issue and its cause will be done by your physician prior to starting therapy with Nitrest Tablet. If the sleep issue persists even after a 7-14 day course of the medication, the doctor may have to do regular follow-ups to treat any underlying disorder you may have. Nitrest is recommended only for short-term treatment of sleep problems (insomnia). It should not be used for a long time as there is an increased risk of dependence with an increase in length of treatment time, especially if used for more than 4 weeks. Dependence may pose a higher risk in individuals with a history of mental illness or alcohol/substance abuse. Informing the physician of any such prior issue is of utmost importance prior to starting treatment with Nitrest.
