FDA requires lower dosage for insomnia drugs

(CNN) -- The Food and Drug Administration announced Thursday it is requiring manufacturers of insomnia products, such as Ambien, Edluar.

"Patients should also read the medication guides and understand the benefits and risks of these drugs," said Dr. Ellis Unger of the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. "We believe that by lowering these doses, we can decrease the side effects that happen the morning after.".

The agency recommended the dosage of zolpidem for women be lowered to 5 milligrams from 10 milligrams for immediate-release products and to 6.25 milligrams from 12.5 milligrams for extended-release products. Patients who use the extended-release forms of these drugs have an even higher risk for next morning impairment, according to the FDA.

Unger said that those who are taking these drugs talk to their doctors first before changing the dosage.
