Product Description

Mogadon (Nitrazepam)

Mogadon is used to treat sleeping problems, also called insomnia. Mogadon contains the active ingredient nitrazepam, a benzodiazepine. It is thought to work by its action on brain chemicals. In general, benzodiazepines such as Mogadon should be taken for short periods only (for example 2 4 weeks). Nitrazepam is a hypnotic drug of the benzodiazepine class, indicated for the short-term relief of severe, disabling anxiety and insomnia It also has sedative and motor-impairing properties as well as amnestic, anticonvulsant, and skeletal muscle relaxant effects.

Nitrazepam is used to treat short-term sleeping problems (insomnia), namely difficulty falling asleep, frequent awakening, early awakening, or a combination of each. Nitrazepam is sometimes used for refractory epilepsies. However, long-term prophylactic treatment of epilepsy has considerable drawbacks. Most importantly, the loss of antiepileptic effects due to tolerance which renders prolonged nitrazepam therapy ineffective. It also has the drawback of significant side effects such as sedation, which is why nitrazepam and benzodiazepines in general are only prescribed in the acute management of epilepsies. Nitrazepam has been found to be more effective than clonazepam in the treatment of West syndrome, which is an age-dependent epilepsy, affecting the very young. However, as with other epilepsies treated with benzodiazepines, long-term therapy becomes ineffective with prolonged treatment, and the side effects of hypotonia and drowsiness are troublesome with nitrazepam therapy; other antiepileptic agents are therefore recommended for long-term therapy, possibly corticotropin (ACTH) or vigabatrin.In uncontrolled studies, nitrazepam has shown effectiveness in infantile spasms; it is sometimes considered as a treatment option for this indication when other drugs fail to control infantile spasms


Mogadon belongs to a group of medicines known as benzodiazepines, which are tranquillisers (medicines that have a calming effect).
Mogadon shortens the time taken to fall asleep and lengthens the duration of sleep. Mogadon Tablets are used for the short term treatment of sleeplessness (also known as insomnia) when it is severe.
Mogadon Tablets help you to sleep but do not cure the underlying cause of your insomnia, which you should discuss with your doctor.
