Sominex Tablets have been formulated for those occasions when you cannot get to sleep because your natural routine is disturbed. Sominex tablets contain promethazine hydrochloride, an antihistamine, which has a sedative effect. The medicine is used as a night time sleep aid, to correct temporary disturbances of sleep pattern where there is difficulty in going to sleep or staying asleep.
Sominex Tablets help to provide approximately six to eight hours of restful sleep. These clinically proven sleeping aids contain the active ingredient promethazine; a type of medicine called a sedating antihistamine. Promethazine enters the brain in significant quantities and causes drowsiness. It decreases the time taken to fall asleep and increases the depth of sleep. This therefore makes Sominex useful for temporary (short-term) relief of sleeping difficulties, such as insomnia, jet lag or other sleeping disorders.
