Sove 5mg Tablets
Sove 5 MG Description
Sove Tab belongs to a class of medicine called sedative-hypnotics, used primarily to treat insomnia, a disorder causing difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Insomnia may be acute or short-ter
m and chronic or long-term due to various complications like stress, anxiety and breathing problems. Sove Tab contains Zolpidem as an active ingredient that works by increasing the activity of GABA, a chemical messenger in the brain acting as a natural nerve-calming agent, thereby inducing sleep. Thus, Sove Tab relaxes muscles, reduces anxiety and helps one to fall asleep. Take Sove Tab on an empty stomach for effective results and swallow it whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew or break Sove Tab. Your doctor will advise how often you should take Sove Tab based on your medical condition. Some people may experience dizziness, diarrhoea, drowsiness, headache, nausea, vomiting, nose or throat infections, tiredness, stomach pain, double vision and back pain on taking Sove Tab. Most of these side effects of Sove Tab do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects of Sove Tab persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.
