What Normodorm is and what it is used for
Normodorm is a medicine that contains the active substance doxylamine hydrogensuccinate. Doxylamine belongs to a group of medications called antihistamines that have sedative properties.
This medication is indicated for the symptomatic treatment of occasional insomnia in people over 18 years of age.
You should see a doctor if it worsens or does not improve after 7 days.

Adults (over 18 years old)
The recommended dose is 1 tablet (25 mg) a day.
If drowsiness occurs during the day, it is recommended to reduce the dose to half a tablet (12.5 mg) per day, or to advance the intake to ensure that at least 8 hours elapse before waking up.

Use in over 65 years
People over 65 years of age are more prone to other pathologies that may recommend a dose reduction. In case of undesirable side effects it is recommended to reduce the dose to half a tablet (12.5 mg) per day.
Use in patients with liver or kidney disease
These patients should take a different dose, adjusted to the degree of their disease, to be determined by the doctor.
Use in children and adolescents
Normodorm is not recommended for use in children under 18 years, therefore the drug should not be used in this population.
Route and method of administration
The tablet can be divided into equal doses.
The tablets should be taken 30 minutes before bedtime with a sufficient amount of liquid (preferably water).
The duration of treatment should be as short as possible. In general, the duration of treatment can range from a few days to a week.
It should not be administered for a period longer than 7 days without consulting the doctor.
If you take more Normodorm than you should
Symptoms of poisoning are: drowsiness, depression or stimulation of the central nervous system, anticholinergic effects (dilated pupils, fever, dry mouth, decreased bowel tone), redness, increased or abnormal heart rate, increased blood pressure, nausea, vomiting, agitation, altered gait, dizziness, irritability, sedation, confusion and hallucinations. Delirium, psychosis, decreased blood pressure, seizures, decreased breathing, loss of consciousness, coma, and death may occur. A serious complication may be rhabdomyolysis (a muscle injury), followed by kidney failure.
There is no specific antidote for antihistamine overdose, so treatment is symptomatic and maintenance. Your doctor will assess the need to induce vomiting, perform a stomach wash, or prescribe medications to increase blood pressure if necessary.
In case of overdose or accidental ingestion, consult the Toxicological Information Service, telephone: 91 562 04 20, indicating the medicine and the amount ingested.
If you forget to take normodorm
