BENEFITS OF MELOSET TABLET

In Treatment of Insomnia

Meloset Tablet helps treat insomnia (difficulty falling or staying asleep) in people who have problems related to their sleeping habits. Insomnia may cause you to wake up earlier than usual and you may find it difficult to go back to sleep. It works by slowing down the abnormal activity of nerves in the brain to allow sleep. It also improves the sleep-wake cycle and restores it to normal. This helps you relax, feel calm, and more energetic. It also helps you concentrate better and improves your quality of life.

In Treatment of Jet lag

As a result, people may have symptoms like daytime sleeping, irritability, lack of concentration, headache, tiredness, and indigestion.
