Medical Uses of Zolpidem?
Zolpidem is approved by the FDA, and contains a substance called zolpidem tartrate. This ingredient is a sedative, thus classifying zolpidem as a hypnotic drug. It is one of the most well-known medications for treating insomnia. There are three distinct types of the drug: immediate-release, sublingual and extended release. The two former types are released into the body almost immediately, while the latter has two layers that release at different rates. One is released fairly quickly to help the consumer fall asleep, while the other is a slow-release that maintains the state of rest. These layers have Ambien CR as an active component.
How It Works?
Zolpidem’s mechanism of action works by releasing a neurotransmitter into the brain, known as “GABA”. This has a somewhat immediate effect: it calms the nerves, relaxes muscles, reduces anxiety and thus induces sleep. The effect on the central nervous system is relatively fast after the medication has been consumed.
Precautions and Contraindications with Zolpidem
As with most sleeping pills, there are precautionary measures that need to be adhered to. Allergies to the main ingredient (zolpidem tartrate) require the consumer to avoid the medication. Consumers should also avoid Zolpidem if they suffer from: hepatic insufficiency, myasthenia gravis, acute respiratory depression, or psychological changes like depression or psychosis. Consult your healthcare professional to find out if Zolpidem may interact with any current medications.
