Brief Answer:
There is no difference

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for follow up.

There is no difference between efficacy and use of zolpidem and zolpimist. Both of them are same thing and can be used interchangeably.

Since zolpidem can be dissolved in liquids I think difficulty in swallowing small tablets can be overcome by breaking the tablet and than dissolving in water.

I hope this helps you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.
