Product Description


Active ingredient present in MIDORYX is Midazolam.
Midazolam belongs to a group of medicines called ‘benzodiazepines’. Midazolam works quickly to make you feel sleepy or to put you to sleep. It also makes you calm and relaxes your muscles.
Midazolam is used in adults:
• as a general anaesthetic to put them to sleep or to keep them asleep.
Midazolam is also used in adults and children:
• to make them feel calm and sleepy if they are in intensive care. This is called ‘sedation’.
• before and during a medical test or procedure where they are going to stay awake. It makes them feel calm and sleepy. This is called ‘conscious sedation’. • to make them feel calm and sleepy before they are given an anaesthetic.
