Quviviq active ingredients
Quviviq contains daridorexant, a sedative-hypnotic as the active ingredient. Daridorexant is a dual orexin receptor antagonist. It works by blocking the action of the neuropeptide orexin, a chemical produced by the brain that promotes wakefulness. This allows people to fall asleep quicker, stay asleep for longer, and to improve functioning during the day.
