Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: What other steps should I take to decrease insomnia in my child?

A: You should follow some additional steps other than taking medicines to treat insomnia. Maintain a log of your child's sleeping hours. Make sure that your child has a healthy diet and does not consume heavy meals just before bed. Make sure there is no noise while the child goes to sleep. It is also important to ensure that your child is not exposed to sunlight for very long. Sunlight decreases the synthesis of melatonin and keeps the child awake. Moreover, your child should relax before going to bed.

A: You should administer Pedicalm Susp as prescribed by your doctor. Do not give this medicine without consulting a doctor. A child's medical history is analysed thoroughly before prescribing this medicine. Pedicalm Susp is not prescribed under normal circumstances. It is only given in conditions where other methods cannot control sleep abnormalities.

Q: How long does it take for Pedicalm Susp to act?

A: It takes approximately 30 minutes for the medicine to act. This medicine should be taken about an hour before going to bed.
