BELSOMRA works differently from other sleep medications. BELSOMRA specifically targets the action of orexin, one of the wake neurotransmitters. Only BELSOMRA works this way.
Only BELSOMRA Targets and Inhibits the Action of Orexin
BELSOMRA is the only prescription sleep aid that targets and inhibits the action of orexin.
Orexin is a central promoter of wakefulness. By inhibiting orexin, BELSOMRA is thought to help quiet the wake pathway.
