What is Dayvigo?

Dayvigo is an FDA (Food and Drug Administration) – approved medication manufactured by Eisai Inc. Dayvigo is a prescription drug for adults who have problems falling or staying asleep (insomnia). Insomnia affects all age groups and is the most common sleep disorder in the world. It is not known if Dayvigo is safe and effective in children under the age of 18 years.

Dayvigo is a federally controlled substance (CIV). It can be abused or cause dependence. You should keep Dayvigo in a safe place to prevent misuse and abuse. Selling or giving away Dayvigo may harm others and is against the law. In clinical trials, Dayvigo did not cause signs or symptoms of withdrawal after discontinuation. This suggests that it does not produce physical dependence in those taking it.

What doses of Dayvigo are available?

Dayvigo is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 5 mg or 10 mg.

  • Take Dayvigo exactly as your healthcare provider advises you to take it. Take Dayvigo one time each night, just before going to bed, but only when you can stay in bed for a full night for at least 7 hours. Time to sleep onset may take longer if you take it with or soon after a meal. Call your healthcare provider if your insomnia (sleep problem) worsens or if it has not improved within 7 to 10 days. This could mean that another condition is causing your sleep problem. If you take too much Dayvigo, call your healthcare professional for medical advice or go to the nearest hospital emergency room right away. Store Dayvigo tablets at room temperature

Dayvigo active ingredients

Lemborexant belongs to the class of medications called hypnotics and is an orexin receptor antagonist and the mechanism of action of lemborexant in the treatment of insomnia is thought to be through the blocking of orexin receptors, which normally play a role in staying awake.

Dayvigo side effects

The most common side effects of Dayvigo include:

  • Drowsiness (somnolence) that continues into the next day
  • Nightmares or unusual dreams
  • Headache

In rare instances, Dayvigo can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Temporary inability to move or talk (sleep paralysis) – this can last up to several minutes while you are going to sleep or waking up
  • Temporary weakness in your legs – this can occur during the day or night
  • Complex sleep behaviors such as sleep-walking, sleep-driving, preparing and eating food, making phone calls, having sex, or doing other activities while not fully awake. You may not remember what you did the next morning
  • Worsening depression and suicidal thoughts

Side effects are more likely if Dayvigo is taken in a high dose, with other CNS depressants, or after a poor night’s sleep.

Other possible side effects may occur. Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Dayvigo against your risk of side effects.

Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Dayvigo to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
