Q for better ZZZs

QUVIVIQ works differently than other prescriptions you may have taken in the past, and falling or staying asleep with QUVIVIQ may be different. In clinical trials, people who took QUVIVIQ experienced improvements to their sleep after one week, which increased over the course of the first month — and continued improving over a period of 3 months. That’s why it’s essential to give QUVIVIQ a fair trial period.

After you’ve been prescribed QUVIVIQ, take it every night as directed. Be sure to note any side effects you may be feeling or any changes in sleep overall, and discuss them with your doctor.
