Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

Zolpidem is category C medication during pregnancy and before pregnancy as per food and drug administration of USA. It mean that there is no evidence that it is harmful but at the same time there is no evidence whether it is harmless.

It can be said that it should be avoided as far as possible.

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