Intermezzo Uses

How Does This Medicine Work?

Intermezzo is part of a class of medications called sedative/hypnotics, which are more commonly known as sleep medicines. It is thought that Intermezzo works by binding to certain receptors in the brain known as benzodiazepine receptors. It should be noted that Intermezzo is not a benzodiazepine drug and is not chemically related to benzodiazepines, even though it binds to the same receptors.

Is It Safe for Children to Use Intermezzo?

This medication has not been adequately studied in children or adolescents. Do not give your child Intermezzo that has been prescribed for you or anyone else, and do not give your child this sleep medicine without discussing the possible risks and benefits with your child's healthcare provider.

Off-Label Uses of Intermezzo

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this product for something other than middle-of-the-night insomnia. This is called an "off-label" use. Using Intermezzo for any other type of insomnia would be considered an off-label use.
