How effective are Japanese Rozerem tablets 8 mg for insomnia (ramelteon)?
Rozerem tablets’ active ingredient is ramelteon, a melatonin receptor agonist. It works by binding to the MT1 and MT2 receptors in the suprachiasmatic nucleus and promoting sleep while acting upon endogenous melatonin. As a result, Rozerem tablets speed the onset of sleep and increase the total amount of sleep.
Who should take Rozerem tablets 8 mg from Japan?
Ramelteon is currently considered a unique sleep agent in its class. It does not have a direct sedating effect. Instead, Rozerem tablets naturally improve body’s circadian rhythm underlying the normal sleep-wake cycle. Studies also showed that ramelteon has no abuse liability and therefore is not even listed as a controlled substance (D. N. Neubauer. "A review of ramelteon in the treatment of sleep disorders". Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment. 2008, February, 4 (1): 69–79).
