Who should take Rilmazafone hydrochloride tablets 2 mg from Japan?
Rilmazafone is an effective hypnotic that helps to induce sleep. It is generally well tolerated and has no serious side effects. Japanese researches particularly recommend using rilmazafone for the elderly with early morning awakening as it doesn’t have any next-day residual effects (S. Uemura, T. Kanbayashi et al. “Residual effects of zolpidem, triazolam, rilmazafone and placebo in healthy elderly subjects: A randomized double-blind study”. Sleep Medicine. 2015, 16 (11), pp. 1395-1402).
