Agoprex contains Agomelatine which is an anti-depressant developed for the treatment of major depressive disorder. Agomelatine may also have help with sleep and cognition.
Agomelatine works by restoring the balance of the circadian rhythm. It has two actions :
The first is to improve sleep. Agomelatine mimics the activity of a substance called melatonin. This is the brain chemical that we all have which helps us to get to sleep. By mimicking the action of melatonin, Agomelatine helps people with depression to sleep.
The second action is to increase the levels of and noradrenaline in a part of the brain called the frontal cortex. This is the part of the brain that controls our moods, and increasing the activity of and noradrenaline here helps to lift the symptoms of depression.
