Do you have trouble falling asleep?
Edluar may be able to help
If you have trouble falling asleep, you might have what is called sleep-onset insomnia. Perhaps you've tried changing your sleep routine OR taking an over-the-counter sleep aid. But if you're like many Americans, you still have trouble falling asleep.
Why not ask your healthcare provider about prescription Edluar?
Edluar sublingual tablets contain zolpidem tartrate, the #1 prescribed sleep agent that, for more than 20 years, has helped millions of people fall asleep.
How Edluar works differently
Prescription Edluar sublingual tablets are different because they are "sublingual"—which means you place the tablet under your tongue to dissolve when you want to fall asleep.
How Edluar may help you get to sleep
When you need to fall asleep, immediately before getting into bed, place an Edluar sublingual tablet under your tongue, were it will dissolve. If you find that you can't fall asleep after going to bed (and you haven't taken a sleep aid), you can take Edluar without getting up for water. Be sure you have time for a full night's sleep (7 to 8 hours) before being active again. Edluar sublingual tablets should not be taken with water, other liquids, or food.
Edluar sublingual tablets may help you get a better night's sleep:
- Reduce the time it takes to fall asleep
- Increase sleeping time
- Reduce nighttime awakenings
Ask your healthcare provider if Edluar sublingual tablets are right for you.
Questions to ask your doctor
If you've decided to talk to your healthcare provider about your sleeping problems, write down everything that might be connected to your insomnia. Then take that list to your appointment.
Here are some questions to ask your doctor:
- If I have trouble falling asleep several nights a week, do I have insomnia?
- Can any of the medicines I'm currently taking cause me to have trouble falling asleep?
- What types of activities could prevent me from falling asleep?
- When should I exercise so that it does not affect my sleep?
- How can I make my bedroom a good place to sleep?
- How long before going to bed should I stop drinking caffeine-containing beverages so I can fall asleep?
- Is it okay for me to nap during the day?
- Are Edluar sublingual tablets right for me?
