Thanks for writing in.
Zolefresh contains zolpidem and overdose with the drug either alone or in combination with other drugs is known to cause impairment of consciousness ( which could range from feeling extremely sleepy to coma), severely decreased functioning of the cardiovascular and respiratory system and death.
Please visit the emergency room as soon as possible if you or someone you known has ingested this drug in this dose.
Also, please revisit your treating physician for a re-evaluation.
