This medication is used to treat insomnia. It can be used to effectively treat sleep onset insomnia, which involves difficulty initially falling asleep at the beginning of the night. It is also useful for preventing nighttime and early-morning awakenings.
Eszopiclone acts as a muscle relaxant due to the hypnotic properties. When the tablet is absorbed into the bloodstream, the activity of GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid) is increased. GABA is an amino acid in the brain, which acts as a neurotransmitter. It is stimulated when sleeping pills like eszopiclone are consumed. Eszopiclone stimulates production of GABA, which reduces the neuron activity associated with insomnia. This ultimately slows the brain and helps calm the patient, contributing to quality sleep.
The peak blood level concentration of eszopiclone develops between 45 and 60 minutes after ingestion.
This pill does not affect fertility, so you can safely use it without concerns over having children.
