Edluar Uses

How Does Edluar Work?

Edluar is part of a class of medications called sedative/hypnotics, which are known more commonly as sleep medicines. It is thought that Edluar works by binding to certain receptors in the brain known as benzodiazepine receptors. It should be noted that this medication is not a benzodiazepine drug and is not chemically related to benzodiazepines, even though it binds to the same receptors.

Edluar Use in Children

Edluar has not been adequately studied in children or adolescents. Do not give your child Edluar that has been prescribed for you or anyone else, and do not give this drug to your child without discussing the possible risks and benefits with your child's healthcare provider.
Studies suggest that zolpidem (the active ingredient) might not be effective for treating insomnia in children and may have an unacceptably high risk of serious side effects (such as hallucinations) in children.

Off-Label Uses for Edluar

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Edluar for something other than for short-term insomnia (this would be known as an "off-label" use). Using Edluar for long-term insomnia treatment would be considered an off-label purpose.
