Sleep disturbance may be the presenting manifestation of a physical and/or psychiatric disorder. Consequently, a decision to initiate symptomatic treatment of insomnia should only be made after the patient has been carefully evaluated.
DAYVIGO™ (lemborexant) is indicated for the treatment of insomnia, characterized by difficulties with sleep onset and/or sleep maintenance.
DAYVIGO is not recommended for patients under the age of 18 years.
DAYVIGO is not recommended in patients with severe hepatic impairment.
