Dalmane Drug Information
People who are dealing with insomnia may benefit from Dalmane® (flurazepam). The medication is typically recommended for short-term use, although it may be taken for longer periods in certain circumstances. As a benzodiazepine, the medicine works by enhancing the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a chemical that is naturally calming. GABA can slow down or stop certain nerve signals in the brain.
Although this drug is generally effective, Dalmane is not appropriate for everyone. Tell your healthcare provider if you have a history of substance abuse, depression, or certain allergies. Having this and other information will help ensure that this is the right insomnia treatment for you.
