How Does It 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 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.
 

Zolpidem Oral Spray Effects

Studies have shown that zolpidem oral spray helps people fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and wake up less frequently, compared to a placebo spray (with no active ingredients). Studies have also shown that zolpidem oral spray (at the recommended dosage) is unlikely to cause a "hangover" effect the next day and is unlikely to cause rebound insomnia (a worsening of insomnia once the medication is stopped).
 
Studies of zolpidem oral spray have been relatively short (a few weeks in duration), and it is not clear if this medication is effective when used for more than 35 days.
