Sonata (Zaleplon) Drug Information Clinical Pharmacology - RxList

Zaleplon was rapidly absorbed with a time to peak concentration (tmax) of approximay 1 hour and a terminal-phase elimination half-life (t½) of approximay.

Because zaleplon is primarily metabolized by aldehyde oxidase, and to a lesser extent by CYP3A4, inhibitors of these enzymes might be expected to decrease zaleplon's clearance and inducers of these enzymes might be expected to increase its clearance. Zaleplon has been shown to have minimal effects on the kinetics of warfarin (both R- and S- forms), imipramine, ethanol, ibuprofen, diphenhydramine, thioridazine, and digoxin. However, the effects of zaleplon on inhibition of enzymes involved in the metabolism of other drugs have not been studied.
