Welcome to XXXXXXX
Zolfresh contains zolpidem. Zolpidem is a sleeping pill.
It is important to know the amount one has consumed before starting any therapy.
usual side effects are drowsiness, dizziness and blurred vision, headache, diarrhea, nausea, stomach discomfort and muscle ache, aggressiveness, restlessness, irritability etc.
Treatment is largely symptomatic. Activated charcoal and gastric lavage may be considered if presented within 1 hr of ingestion of more than 100 mg zolpidem. Flumazenil is used to antagonize the effect of it.
I advice it will be better if you see physician for examination, as based on that they can provide the best line management.
Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.
