East West Pharmaceuticals Pvt Ltd
Zam-MT 0.5 Tablet 10's belongs to a class of medication called sedatives and hypnotics, primarily used to treat sleeplessness (insomnia). Besides this, it also helps to provide a calming effect on anxiety disorder and panic disorder. Insomnia is a sleeping disorder in which a person finds difficulty in falling asleep or staying asleep. Due to anxiety and panic disorder, a person cannot sleep due to disturbances in their circadian cycle and hormonal imbalance in the brain like melatonin.
Zam-MT 0.5 Tablet 10's is a combination of two medicines: Alprazolam and Melatonin, which helps a person fall asleep faster and stay asleep during the night. Alprazolam is a benzodiazepine (BZD) that increases the activity of a chemical messenger in the brain known as GABA, reducing the abnormal and overactivity of brain cells (neurons), which in turn relaxes the brain and promotes sleep. On the other hand, Melatonin is a natural hormone that activates the ON-OFF mechanism of a person's sleeping-waking cycle (circadian cycle), thereby inducing sleep during the nighttime.
