Rozerem Overview

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...

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.

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...
