About FULNITE 2MG TABLET

FULNITE 2MG TABLET belongs to a group of medicines called 'sedative-hypnotics,' primarily used to treat sleep problem or insomnia. Insomnia is defined as a sleep disorder which makes it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep.

FULNITE 2MG TABLET contains 'Eszopiclone,' which is a sedative-hypnotic drug. Eszopiclone works by increasing the chemical substance in the brain called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).

This chemical substance slows down the brain's activity to produce a calming effect, thus helping you sleep.
