Insomnia may be experienced for a few days, for two to three weeks, or it may be chronic, lasting for three weeks or more. Many people experience insomnia, particularly women before and at the onset of the menstrual cycle, during pregnancy and menopause. You may need to see a physician or sleep specialist.
Insomnia can have a very serious impact on quality of life, productivity and safety.
ZolpiMist (zolpidem tartrate) Oral Spray is indicated for the short-term treatment of insomnia characterized by difficulties with sleep initiation. Zolpidem tartrate has been shown to decrease sleep latency for up to 35 days in controlled clinical studies. The clinical trials performed in support of efficacy were 4-5 weeks in duration with the final formal assessments of sleep latency performed at the end of treatment.
Complex sleep behaviors including sleep-walking, sleep-driving, and engaging in other activities while not fully awake may occur following use of ZolpiMist. Some of these events may result in serious injuries, including death. Discontinue ZolpiMist immediately if a patient experiences a complex sleep behavior.
