Facts on insomnia, muscle relaxant medications
Dormonoct is schedule 5 psychotropic medication classed as benzodiazepine used for insomnia, muscle relaxant. This high scheduling in South Africa means that all South African medical doctors prescribing or dispensing benzodiazepines like (Dormonoct, Dormonoct, Somnovit and Sonin) that contain Loprazolam must keep a national register of prescription allocations as it is highly controlled substance by legislation.
The motivation for scheduling Loprazolam, Dormonoct, Somnovit and Sonin and other benzodiazepines is due to the fact that psychoactive drugs like Dormonoct can affect on the chemical composition of the brain and nervous system and are capable of influencing your emotions, mind and your moods, or perceptions.

What does Dormonoct do?
Dormonoct adheres to receptors in your nervous system and brain. This boosts the production of a chemical called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). This can produce a calming effect in your brain. Loprazolam is a central nervous system (CNS) depressant and it may be prescribed for it’s sedation effects on people.
As the intent of Dormonoct suppresses your nervous system and you can enter a more relaxed state of being. This de-activated state becomes the primary drawcard for many people who have underlying or constant modes of anxiety or stress in their day to day life that cause the insomnia, muscle relaxant related symptoms.
It won’t take you long to figure out that medications will work for reducing most insomnia, muscle relaxant symptoms. This is why so many people become addicted to Dormonoct even using it as directed by a doctor. The tolerance to and withdrawal from Loprazolam builds quite quickly thus so does the pressure for upping the the recommended dosage.

In many cases, Dormonoct will stay in your system for around 10 days or five “half-lives” to metabolise Loprazolam from the body. Shorter metabolising benzodiazepines have a short half-life meaning that they are processed more quickly and leave your body more quickly.
