Zolpidem Oral Spray Information
If you have trouble falling asleep, you may be interested in a prescription drug called zolpidem oral spray (Zolpimist™). This product is only approved to help if you have trouble falling asleep -- it is not approved for other kinds of insomnia, such as trouble staying asleep. In studies, zolpidem oral spray was shown to decrease the time it takes to fall asleep for up to 35 days of use; it is not clear whether this medication would be effective for longer periods.
To minimize potential risks with zolpidem oral spray, make sure your healthcare provider has a current list of any other drugs you are taking, including nonprescription products, as well as up-to-date information on your medical history. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
