What Is Zolpidem Oral Spray Used For?

How Does Zolpidem Oral Spray Work?

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

Can It Be Used in Children?

Zolpidem oral spray has not been adequately studied in children or adolescents. Do not give your child zolpidem oral spray that has been prescribed for you or anyone else, and do not give your child the oral spray without discussing the possible risks and benefits of use in children with your child's healthcare provider.
 

Off-Label Zolpidem Oral Spray Uses

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