Brief Answer:
They are appropriate and safe medication...

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Zolfresh is the brand name for the medication Zolpidem. It is a sedative medication which does not have any addictive potential. It is considered better than the other usual sedative medication (benzodiazepines) as it does not cause daytime drowsiness or dullness.

Eliwell is the brand name of the medication Amitryptilline. This is a sedative antidepressant medication. 10 mg is a very minimal and safe dose.

So, don't worry, both medication are effective and safe medication that can be helpful for sleeplessness.

Wish you all the best.
