What is Zimovane?

Zimovane with the active ingredient Zopiclone is a non-benzodiazepine hypnotic drug that is used in the short term treatment of insomnia or sleep problems among patients. The treatment with Zimovane should last for up to 4 weeks.
Zimovane treats patients with difficulty sleeping at night, sleeping problems associated with psychiatric disorders, waking up too early in the morning and other sleeping issues those results to severe distress among sufferers.
How does Zimovane work?
Zimovane works receptors of the brain known as the ‘GABA’ receptors. This set of receptors is responsible for the release of neurotransmitters in the brain known as GABA.
GABA is the one that is dubbed as the nerve calming agent of the brain. It affords balance in the brain by placing equilibrium to the nerve activities and is responsible for relaxing muscles, minimizing anxiety, and induces sleep. Zimovane reduces the time it takes for one to fall asleep and the total number of times when one wakes up at night, thus improves the overall quality of sleep.
