Zolpidem is prescribed to treat insomnia. It is part of the sedative-hypnotics drug family. It slows activity in the brain to allow sleep.
Types of Zolpidem
It generally comes in two types of sizes:
- Zolpidem 5mg Tablets - For those who need a smaller dose.
- Zolpidem 10mg Tablets - Those who need larger doses.
The correct size is usually determined by your doctor. It comes either as a tablet or an extended-release oral tablet. It’s prescribed to be taken as needed late at night or when your normal bedtime is and will work faster if it is not taken with a meal or immediately after a meal. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and take as directed.
Zolpidem Dosage is determined by your doctor. There are two general types, extended release (Zolpidem CR) and instant release (Zolpidem IR). Extended release creates an immediate fast acting formula in order to bring you to sleep, and a longer slow disinegrating solution in order to keep you asleep. It is one of the best sleep aids.
It should be used if you are having trouble getting on a normal sleeping schedule and your doctor feels like it could resolve the issue. It is important to get a medical professional’s advice prior to taking it. Your schedule should allow you to sleep 7-8 hours after taking it.
