Pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic studies have shown it to be an effective hypnotic with a good safety profile and minimal side- effects. The efficacy of Zopiclone was studied in a group of patients with insomnia (n=40). The study group comprised patients with and without a psychiatric diagnosis. Abouttwo-thirds (65%) oj'thepatients hadbeen on'hypnotics previously without relief of the insomnia. There was improvement in the various sleep parameters studied: sleep latency, sleep duration, night awakening, sleep quality, dreams, "day-after" effects. The drug was well-tolerated and only four patients experienced minor side-effects.
