Zolpidem-Induced Sleepwalking, Sleep Related Eating Disorder

Zolpidem is a hypnotic which acts at the GABAA receptor and is indicated for short-term insomnia. Sleep related disorders including somnambulism, sleep.

5 Though considered a non-benzodiazepine since its imidazopyridine structure differs from benzodiazepine fusion of benzene and diazepine, zolpidem is a benzodiazepine receptor agonist with high binding affinity for the GABA A (gamma-amino butyric acid type A) receptor expressing the α 1 subunit. Zolpidem is an imidazopyridine drug indicated for short-term insomnia at a dosage usually ranging from 5 to 10 mg per day. Benzodiazepines and benzodiazepine receptor agonists like zolpidem bind to the GABA A receptor at sites that are distinct from the GABA binding site, thereby allosterically affecting the activity of the ligand-operated chloride channel.

A second PET study FDG was administered 1 h after the administration of 10 mg zolpidem.

NEUROTOPIA Ambient Somnambulism, or The Zombies Among Us

Ambien is a sleep aid, a class of drugs known as hypnotics. this case) may not elicit somnambulism, the system could be primed for the effect.

Isn't it true, though, that somnambulism is not always associated with a lack of memory? I frequently (once every couple of months) murder my bedside drawers, pulling stuff out, contructing little structures out of the lamp and other things. So I think of sleepwalkers as conscious in the same way we are conscious during a dream: that is, a different person altogether, perhaps confused and with unusual motivations, but still able to respond to stimuli. I don't remember why I did it, but I do - vaguely - remember doing it, and having had a reason at teh time.

To Sleep, Perchance to . . . Walk - Washington Post

More than 24 million prescriptions for Ambien were written in 2004.. The prescribing information for Ambien lists somnambulism as a "rare".

(Ambien has been available in the United States since 1993, but sleepwalking events per se were not reported before 1997.). FDA adverse event report databases contain sleepwalking reports from 1997 through June 2005. After a drug is approved and marketed in the United States, the FDA accepts (but does not actively solicit) reports of side effects from doctors, patients and drug makers.

"That can give patients, and physicians for that matter, the impression that the management of problems is as simple as giving someone a prescription for a sleeping medication and sending them on their way," Sateia said.
