Brief Answer:
He will be ok, the drug is a safe drug.

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for asking from HCM for your health related doubts

I am sorry about your loss. Stilnox is Zolpidem and the drug is a safe drug. Even if he has taken two tabs this will not cause much side effects. No need to worry. He will be ok, let him sleep for some more time. Try not to awaken him. Please give him medicines under proper supervision of a doctor only.

Thanks.

I have been taking .05 Clozapine twice a day for a year to treat Vertigo which was quite severe 3 years ago. Meclizine did not help but Clozapine does. In addition to that, I take Ambien 2-3 times a week for sleep. I was also drinking 2-3 ounces of Vodka nightly which I have discontinued. My plan is to wean myself off Ambien but am not sure about Clozapine because when I don t take it, my head starts spinning again.
