Hello,

Amnesia (forgetfulness) is more common if you do not get a full 7 to 8 hours of sleep after taking this medicine. Avoid driving or hazardous activity until you know how zolpidem will affect you.

You may still feel sleepy in the morning, and your reactions could be impaired.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr AJEET SINGH, General & Family Physician
