What is Ramelteon
Ramelteon is the first in a new class of sleep agents that selectively binds to the melatonin receptors in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). It is used for insomnia, particularly delayed sleep onset. Ramelteon has not been shown to produce dependence and has shown no potential for abuse.
Ramelteon mechanism of action
Ramelteon is a melatonin receptor agonist with both high affinity for melatonin MT sub 1 /sub and MT sub 2 /sub receptors, and lower selectivity for the MT sub 3 /sub receptor. Melatonin production is concurrent with nocturnal sleep, meaning that an increase in melatonin levels is related to the onset of self-reported sleepiness and an increase in sleep propensity. MT sub 1 /sub receptors are believed to be responsible for regulation of sleepiness and facilitation of sleep onset, and MT sub 2 /sub receptors are believed to mediate phase-shifting effects of melatonin on the circadian rhythm. While MT sub 1 /sub and MT sub 2 /sub receptors are associated with the sleep-wake cycle, MT sub 3 /sub has a completely different profile, and therefore is not likely to be involved in the sleep-wake cycle. Remelteon has no appreciable affinity for the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptor complex or receptors that bind neuropeptides, cytokines, serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, acetylcholine, or opiates.
