What is Zopiclone?

IMOVANE is a prescription medication intended to help you sleep if you have transient and short-term insomnia.
Patients who take IMOVANE and other medicines to help them sleep may experience decreased ability to be alert the day after taking the medicine, even if they feel fully awake. This can cause next-day impairment of driving or other activities that require full mental alertness.
  • The recommended initial dose has been reduced to 3.75 mg (one-half of the 7.5 mg tablet). Elderly patients, those with liver or kidney function impairment or those currently taking other specific medication should not take more than 5 mg daily.
  • If you are concerned about your current dosage, contact your healthcare professional.
DO NOT drive a car or engage in hazardous activities requiring complete alertness (e.g. operating machinery):
  • If it has not been at least 12 hours since taking the medicine, even if you feel fully awake, especially in elderly patients and in patients who take the 7.5 mg dose, and
  • In all cases, until you experience how this medication affects you on the next day.
IMOVANE should be taken at bedtime immediately before going to sleep. Do not take more IMOVANE than prescribed. Do not use IMOVANE if you drink alcohol. Do not use IMOVANE along with other medications, over-the-counter medicines or herbal products without first discussing this with your doctor or pharmacist.
If you experience excessive drowsiness the next day after taking IMOVANE that affects your ability to perform tasks in the morning contact your physician as your dose may need to be reduced.
