Zolpidem is a sedative that is also known as a hypnotic. It alters brain chemicals that may be out of whack in those who suffer from sleep problems (insomnia).
Insomnia is treated with Zolpidem tartrate 10mg. Ambien, Intermezzo, Edluar, and Zolpimist are the immediate-release versions that are used to assist you to fall asleep.
When you first go to bed, Ambien, Edluar, and Zolpimist are taken to assist you to fall asleep. If you wake up in the middle of the night and have difficulties sleeping, Intermezzo can help you get back to sleep.
The optimal form of zolpidem for you will be determined by your doctor.
