strong pain killers (e.g. methadone), drugs for epilepsy, drugs to help breathing, drugs which stop liver

Important information about some of the ingredients of Lormetazepam Tablets
If you have been told by your doctor that you have an intolerance to some sugars, contact your
doctor before taking this medicinal product.
Always take Lormetazepam Tablets exactly as your doctor has told you. The label on your
medicine should also tell you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not
sure. The usual adult dose of Lormetazepam Tablets is 0.5mg to 1.5mg. For patients with mild to
moderate difficulties in breathing or patients with liver impairment a dose reduction should be
considered. You should swallow your tablets with water just before you go to bed at night. Make sure
you can have 7 or 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep before taking Lormetazepam Tablets.
Elderly: Elderly patients may respond to half the usual adult dose or less.

The label on your medicine will tell you how many tablets to take and how often. If it does not, or you
are not sure, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Treatment usually lasts from a few days to 2 weeks. It should not usually last longer than 4
weeks including a dose reduction at the end. This reduces the risk of becoming dependant on
Lormetazepam Tablets, or suffering unpleasant side-effects when you stop taking them (See ‘If you
stop taking Lormetazepam Tablets’ section).
The beneficial effect of Lormetazepam Tablets may be less apparent after several weeks of use. If you
are given lormetazepam for more than 4 weeks, your doctor might want to take blood samples
occasionally to check your blood and liver, since drugs like lormetazepam have occasionally affected
liver function.
