Cardioton -

Anxiolytic, Sedative

Properties and actions:

Sedaneurin is an anxiolytic drug with a dose-dependent sedative effect. It shows a potentiating effect in enhancement of GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) pathway, which is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, thus acts as sedative and sleep promoting agent.
Sedaneurin has an antidepressant effect due to inhibition of serotonin and to lesser extent the norepinephrine reuptake pump.
Sedaneurin restores normal sleep pattern through the increase of melatonin that plays a crucial role in the etiology of affective disorders and sleep.
Moreover Hypericum increases its noc- turnal production.

Sedaneurin doesn’t cause substance dependence, habituation or hangover effect.
