Zolpidem [Presence] in Urine by Confirmatory method
Zolpidem is a drug in the imidazopyridine class used to treat insomnia on a short-term basis, some general brain disorders, and off-label for restless leg syndrome. Zolpidem binds to the benzodiazepine cell receptors and begins to take effect within 15 minutes of dosing. Some side-effects of Zolpidem include anterograde amnesia, hallucinations, delusions, altered thought patterns, ataxia, euphoria, dysphoria, increased appetite, decreased libido, impaired judgement, increased impulsivity, and uninhibited extroversion in social or personal settings. The symptoms of overdose include excessive sedation, pin-point pupils, and depressed respiratory function which may progress to coma or death. The benzodiazepine agonist flumazenil is an effective treatment for overdose with Zolpidem. Information from Wikipedia accessed 2008 09 02.

Zolpidem is a prescription medication used for the short-term treatment of insomnia, as well as some brain disorders. It is a short-acting nonbenzodiazepine hypnotic that potentiates gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), an inhibitory neurotransmitter, by binding to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABAA) receptors at the same location as benzodiazepines. Trade names of zolpidem include Adormix, Ambien, Ambien CR, Edluar, Zolpimist, Damixan, Hypnogen, Ivedal, Lioran, Myslee, Nasen, Nytamel, Sanval, Somidem, Stilnoct, Stilnox, Stilnox CR, Sucedal, Zoldem, Zolnod and Zolpihexal.
Zolpidem has not adequately demonstrated effectiveness in maintaining sleep. Its hypnotic effects are similar to those of the benzodiazepine class of drugs, but it is molecularly distinct from the classical benzodiazepine molecule and is classified as an imidazopyridine. Flumazenil, a benzodiazepine receptor antagonist, which is used for benzodiazepine overdose, can also reverse zolpidem's sedative/hypnotic and memory impairing effects.
