At the end of August, Polfa Tarchomin started selling its new product – a non-prescription drug. Tonasen, a synthetic counterpart to the natural hormone – melatonin, is a drug used in case of sleeping disorders.
Tonasen is used as an excipient in sleeping disorders related to, for example, changing time zones or working in shifts. Disruptions of a person’s biological rhythm are one of the reasons for melatonin deficiency. In addition, the product facilitates adjustment of sleeping patterns and wakefulness of blind patients. However, Tonasen may be used by anyone with sleeping problems.
The medicine is available in a form of blisters of 30 uncoated tablets (a dose of 5 mg x 30 tablets).
