Zolpidem for insomnia. Greenblatt DJ, Roth T. INTRODUCTION: The imidazopyridine derivative zolpidem , which acts as a benzodiazepine.

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.

The imidazopyridine derivative zolpidem, which acts as a benzodiazepine (BZ) receptor agonist, is the most widely prescribed hypnotic drug in the US.

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.

Zolpidem (Ambien, Stilnox, Myslee, an imidazopyridine, is a nonbenzodiazepine hypnotic indicated for the short-term treatment of insomnia. Zolpidem improves sleep in patients with insomnia. Its overall tolerability is favourable when administered according to the manufacturer's prescribing information, with a low propensity to cause clinical residual effects, withdrawal, dependence or tolerance. In addition, most evidence suggests that the drug is associated with minimal rebound insomnia. In the only clinical trials that investigated the use of a hypnosedative drug in an 'as-needed' regimen, zolpidem produced a global improvement in sleep. Thus, zolpidem continues to be a useful therapeutic option in the pharmacological treatment of patients with insomnia.

People with insomnia — the inability to sleep — may be plagued by trouble falling compared CBT alone with the combination of CBT and zolpidem (Ambien).

Treatment becomes necessary once insomnia impairs sleep quality to the degree that it adversely affects a person's health or ability to function during the day.

Relaxation techniques. For some people with insomnia, a racing or worried mind is the enemy of sleep. In others, physical tension is to blame. A variety of techniques — such as meditation, breathing exercises, progressive muscle relaxation, and visualization of peaceful settings — can calm the mind and relax the body enough to foster sleep.

In each issue of HEALTHbeat:

Over-the-counter antihistamines have a sedating effect and are generally safe.
