hello...
it contains zolpidem...
Lexa h tablet induces sleep by suppressing the excessive activity of the nerve cells in the brain...
usually i avoid this drug for my patients.. as insomnia is quite normal in every women.. i always suggest to keep mind peaceful and do some yoga and meditation which do miracles in this condition
