Brief Answer:
Hello

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to XXXXXXX

Usually Zolpidem is advised for short term management of insomnia. It is useful in early insomnia as it helps in induction of sleep at 10 mg doses.

Its controlled release preparations "CR" are available in 6.25 to 12.5 mg doses. These preparations help in getting good sleep.

There are no serious side effects with Zolpidem if the drug is taken under proper supervision of a Psychiatrist. It is free of serious dependence, mild restlessness may be observed in next morning in some persons. Over all it is a safe drug.

Thanks, you can ask again if you have more questions.
