Does this medication work for insomnia? Are there any side effects?


I sufer insomnia. Have taken differents medicines, but after several days I find they don't work. My Dr. gave me some sample of Rozerem, but I don't anything about this medication. ## I accepted this perscription as ambien or its generic zolpidem is for short term use and was no longer effective and I had been on it for a long time. I read the ingredients in rozerem and was disturbed by "black shellac" as the 2nd to last ingredient listed, but took my first pill 30 minutes before bedtime as instructed. I woke in the middle of the night extremely nauseated and eventually returned to sleep, however upon waking in the morning, felt nauseated still. Took hours for the nausea to wear off and spent all yesterday in a sluggish state of being. Did not repeat taking the pill last...

I've suffered from insomnia for years. I was prescribed Rozerem recently and so far, it works. Directions are to take 30 minutes before bed. They do work! The only side effects mt doctor found were erratic menstruation. That I have not experienced yet. ## I have just started Rozerem and would like to know how others like it and what side effects they have had. ## I have also started taking Rozerem. I saw no results after two nights but the dr. said it took time to work and not to quit taking it. I don't find this statement in the drug company information. Meanwhile I am really tired after waking up every few hours last night. Anyone else given this advice? ## I have been taking it successfully for about a month with no side effects. Best wishs. Susan ## Rozerem has been shown to...

I took only 3 of my script. The first night it was like I was sleeping in cotton candy. Night, I was paralyzed physically but wide awake. My cat kept trying to close my eyes, but they'd pop right back open. It was snowing and I swear on all that is holy, I could "HEAR" each snowflake as they bumped one another and when they settled on my roof, FREAKY, couldn't move, glad I didn't have to go to bathroom!! Lasted 12 hrs. Night 3... NO SLEEP WHATSOEVER...This LASTED 105 hours, began getting sores in my mouth and nose, tongue swelled (not to uncomfortably.) Lips too, looked like J-LO in " Monster-In-Law" after she ate peanuts. I've had bad reactions before, didn't feel the need for EMS or anything. The ONLY good thing about this drug... The WEIGHT I'd...

Does this contain asprin I'm having surgery and can't have anything with it in it ## Hello, Berry! How are you? No, the tablets with the Tak Ram 8 marking are listed as containing Rozerem (Ramelteon), which is used to treat insomnia. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite, trouble concentrating and unable to sleep. Is there anything else I can help with?

round beige or light yellow ## It is Rozerem 8 mg. The acitive ingrediant is Ramelteon: It is a sedative, also called a hypnotic. It affects chemicals in your brain that may become unbalanced and cause sleep problems (insomnia). Ramelteon is used to treat insomnia. This medication causes relaxation to help you fall asleep and stay asleep.

sleep aid ## Do you mean Rozerem ? ## Not sure.. tryin' to find out about it for my Dad. That's the name he gave me.. I'll have to check with him again.... ## Chris, I do think it might be Rozerem since that's what it is prescribed for. Plus running a Google search for Rosozon does not return anything. Usually if you look up a prescription med on Google it will almost always return many results. Hope this helps! Lisa ## Thank you for your help Lisa. I will double-check it with my Dad. Take care....-Chris

prescribed for insomnia ## The right way to spell it is Rozerem. It was approved 7/22/05 by the FDA. The FDA approval allows physicians to prescribe Rozerem for long-term use in adults. Rozerem is the first and only prescription sleep medication that has shown no evidence of abuse and dependence and, as a result, has not been designated as a controlled substance by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). With the exception of Rozerem, all other prescription medications indicated for insomnia are classified as Schedule IV controlled substances by the DEA. Additionally, Rozerem is the first prescription insomnia medication with a new therapeutic mechanism of action in 35 years, and will be available for patients by late September. Rozerem has a unique therapeutic mechanism of acti...
