Zolpidem drug information

 Insomnia or poor sleep is a common disorder that has a transient course. If you have trouble sleeping, it means that you have trouble falling asleep, or that you wake up several times during the night, or that you wake up very early in the morning. Sleeping pills are usually used as a last resort but are sometimes used to treat some severe insomnia. Zolpidem causes drowsiness by affecting brain messages. Zolpidem belongs to a group of drugs called Z drugs that reduce the time required to fall asleep and increase the duration of sleep.

Zolpidem often works well in the short term, but is not usually prescribed for more than 2-4 weeks. This is because long-term use of zolpidem is addictive and also loses its effectiveness after a while.

 

Dosage and method of taking Zolpidem

The dose and amount of medicine varies from person to person; Use the medicine exactly as your doctor advised. Your doctor may advise you to take the pill only two or three nights a week.

Zolpidem is usually given as a tablet (10 mg) that should be taken before going to bed. Do not take more than one dose overnight. If you are over 65 years old, your doctor may find a 5 mg tablet more appropriate for you.
