The Use, Import Or Promotion Of Night Calm Without Prescription Illegal - Interior Ministry

(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) KUWAIT, March 27 (KUNA) -- Kuwait Ministry of Interior warned Monday against the use, possession, promotion, import or selling of Night Calm pills without a medical permit or prescription as it's considered "a crime punishable by law."
The drug, Zopiclone, which is sold under the name Night Calm as well as other generic names, is used to treat insomnia and usually limited to short treatment periods of 1 to 2 weeks or less, the Ministry said in a press release.
The drug can cause multiple health issues such as depression, addiction, anxiety and can lead to suicide if not used under the supervision of an authorized medical specialist, the statement noted.
The Interior ministry's decision comes based on previously adopted laws and regulations issued by the Health ministry in December 2022. (end)
