ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: The imidazopyridine derivative zolpidem, which acts as a benzodiazepine (BZ) receptor agonist, is the most widely prescribed hypnotic drug in the US. AREAS COVERED: This review addresses the neuroreceptor properties of zolpidem; clinical pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and drug interactions; efficacy as a hypnotic; adverse effects; tolerance, dependence and withdrawal; relation to motor vehicle accidents and complex sleep behaviors; and new dosage forms. EXPERT OPINION: Approved doses of zolpidem (10 mg for adults, 5 mg for the elderly) are consistently effective in reducing sleep latency and consequently increasing sleep duration in patients with insomnia. However, favorable effects on sleep maintenance are observed less consistently. Residual daytime effects are unlikely with recommended doses, and provided that at least 8 h elapse prior to arising. Hypnotic efficacy is maintained with repeated nightly use, and the risk of rebound insomnia is low. Dependence and abuse of zolpidem are no more likely to occur than with typical benzodiazepines. Newly available novel dosage forms of zolpidem have increased therapeutic options for patients with insomnia variants such as sleep maintenance insomnia and middle-of-the-night awakening.

Zolpidem for Insomnia Related to PTSD. Michael E. Dieperink ,M.D., Ph.D.; Lisa Drogemuller, R.Ph. Psychiatric Services 1999; doi: Article.

Case 3. The patient, a 52-year-old male Vietnam combat veteran diagnosed with PTSD by the Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale, reported severe nightmares nightly in which he awoke sweating profusely, was "ready to shoot at the enemy," and was unable to go back to sleep. He slept a total of two to four hours a night. He was treated with nefazodone 150 mg twice a day and risperidone 5 mg at bedtime. However, he felt oversedated, and one month later zolpidem up to 20 mg was substituted for risperidone.
