Edluar® - treatment of short-term insomnia

Edluar® is based on Orexo’s sublingual tablet technology and the active substance zolpidem. The product offers treatment for short-term insomnia. Zolpidem is a well-documented substance that has been used in the treatment of insomnia for a long time. The Edluar® tablet is placed under the tongue, where it rapidly dissolves and the active ingredient is absorbed through the mucous membrane.
