    Why is this medication prescribed

    Zolpidem is used short-term to treat insomnia (to help you fall asleep and stay asleep for a proper rest).

    This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

    Proper Use of This Medicine

    Take this medicine only as directed by your doctor. Do not take more of it, do not take it more often, and do not take it for a longer time than your doctor ordered. If too much is taken, it may become habit-forming (causing mental or physical dependence).

    Take zolpidem just before going to bed, when you are ready to go to sleep. This medicine works very quickly to put you to sleep.

    Do not take this medicine when your schedule does not permit you to get a full night's sleep (7 to 8 hours). If you must wake up before this, you may continue to feel drowsy and may experience memory problems, because the effects of the medicine have not had time to wear off.

    Zolpidem may be taken with or without food or on a full or empty stomach. It may work faster if you take it on an empty stomach. However, if your doctor tells you to take the medicine a certain way, take it exactly as directed.

    Dosing

    The dose of zolpidem will be different for different patients. Follow your doctor's orders or the directions on the label. The following information includes only the average doses of zolpidem. If your dose is different, do not change it unless your doctor tells you to do so.

    The number of tablets that you take depends on the strength of the medicine.

    • For oral dosage form (tablets):
      • For the treatment of insomnia (trouble in sleeping):
        • Adults 10 milligrams (mg) at bedtime.
        • Older adults 5 mg at bedtime.
        • Children up to 18 years of age Use and dose must be determined by the doctor.

    Missed dose

    If you miss a dose of this medicine, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not double doses.

    Storage

    To store this medicine:

    • Keep out of the reach of children.
    • Store away from heat and direct light.
    • Do not store in the bathroom, near the kitchen sink, or in other damp places. Heat or moisture may cause the medicine to break down.
    • Do not keep outdated medicine or medicine no longer needed. Be sure that any discarded medicine is out of the reach of children.

    What other information should I know

    Keep all appointments with your doctor.

    Do not let anyone else take your medication. Zolpidem is a controlled substance. Prescriptions may be refilled only a limited number of times; ask your pharmacist if you have any questions.

    Before Using This Medicine

    Sleep medicines may cause a special type of memory loss or ``amnesia''. When this occurs, a person does not remember what has happened during the several hours between use of the medicine and the time when its effects wear off. This is usually not a problem since most people fall asleep after taking the medicine. In most instances, memory problems can be avoided by taking zolpidem only when you are able to get a full night's sleep (7 to 8 hours) before you need to be active again. Be sure to talk to your doctor if you think you are having memory problems.

    In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of taking the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make. For zolpidem, the following should be considered:

    Allergies Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to zolpidem. Also tell your health care professional if you are allergic to any other substances, such as foods, preservatives, or dyes.

    Pregnancy Zolpidem has not been studied in pregnant women. However, studies in pregnant animals have shown that zolpidem slows down the development of the offspring when given to the mother in doses many times the human dose. Before taking this medicine, make sure your doctor knows if you are pregnant or if you may become pregnant.

    Breast-feeding Although zolpidem passes into breast milk, it has not been reported to cause problems in nursing babies.

    Children Studies on this medicine have been done only in adult patients, and there is no specific information comparing use of zolpidem in children with use in other age groups.

    Older adults Confusion and falling are more likely to occur in the elderly, who are usually more sensitive than younger adults to the effects of zolpidem.

    Other medicines Although certain medicines should not be used together at all, in other cases two different medicines may be used together even if an interaction might occur. In these cases, your doctor may want to change the dose, or other precautions may be necessary. When you are taking zolpidem, it is especially important that your health care professional know if you are taking any of the following:

    • Other central nervous system (CNS) depressants (medicines that cause drowsiness) or
    • Tricyclic antidepressants (amitriptyline [e.g., Elavil], amoxapine [e.g., Asendin], clomipramine [e.g., Anafranil], desipramine [e.g., Pertofrane], doxepin [e.g., Sinequan], imipramine [e.g., Tofranil], nortriptyline [e.g., Aventyl], protriptyline [e.g., Vivactil], trimipramine [e.g., Surmontil]) The CNS depressant effects of either these medicines or zolpidem may be increased, possibly leading to unwanted effects

    Other medical problems The presence of other medical problems may affect the use of zolpidem. Make sure you tell your doctor if you have any other medical problems, especially:
    • Alcohol abuse (or history of) or
    • Drug abuse or dependence (or history of) Dependence on zolpidem may develop
    • Emphysema, asthma, bronchitis, or other chronic lung disease or
    • Mental depression or
    • Sleep apnea (temporary stopping of breathing during sleep) Zolpidem may make these conditions worse
    • Kidney disease or
    • Liver disease Higher blood levels of zolpidem may result, increasing the chance of side effects
