Product Description

Dormicum is a medicine that contains an active substance called midazolam. It belongs to a group of medicines called benzodiazepines. It is used to treat insomnia or to prepare patient for surgery.

The usual dose is 7.5 mg once a day, immediately before bedtime. If necessary, the dose may be increased to 15 mg once a day, immediately before bedtime. This medicine should be taken immediately before bedtime, in order to avoid anterograde amnesia. Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water.

Dormicum is not recommended for use at doses greater than 7.5 mg per day in patients above the age of 65.

It can be used in patients under the age of 18, only in rare cases. In such cases, the dose should be calculated according to body mass. Usual dose is 0.2 mg / kg of body weight.

Example: If your child weighs 40 kg, then dose should be calculated as follows:

40 kg x 0.2 mg / kg = 8 mg per day.

This is just an example. Your doctor will prescribe dosing schedule that is best for you. Do not take this medicine on your own, without your doctor's advice.

This medicine should not be used for more than a month, because prolonged use increases the risk of addiction.
