This is a summary of the most important information about Zaleplon. For details, talk to
your healthcare professional.

What is Zaleplon used for?

Zaleplon is used to treat short-term difficulty in falling asleep.
Zaleplon has been shown to decrease the
time to sleep onset for up to 30 days in clinical studies.
Zaleplon has not been shown to increase your total sleep time
or decrease the number of times you wake up after falling asleep.

In general, medications used to bring on sleep should only be
used for 7- 10 days.

Who should not take Zaleplon?

Do not take Zaleplon if you are allergic to Zaleplon or any of its
ingredients. Zaleplon contains FD&C Yellow No. 5 dye (tartrazine)
which may cause allergic reactions in certain people such as
asthma-like symptoms and difficulty breathing. Patients who are
allergic to aspirin may be more likely to have a reaction to Zaleplon.

General Precautions with Zaleplon:

  • Zaleplon, like all sleep medicines, may make
    you drowsy during the day. The amount of drowsiness you feel
    depends upon how your body reacts to Zaleplon and the dose of Zaleplon
    you are taking. If you experience drowsiness during the day, talk
    to your doctor.
  • If your sleep problems do not get better or
    you begin to have unusual thinking or behavior changes while you
    take Zaleplon, they may be due to another medical reason. Tell your
    doctor right away.
  • If you abruptly stop taking Zaleplon you may
    experience withdrawal symptoms.
  • You may have more trouble falling asleep the
    first few nights after you stop taking Zaleplon than before starting
    Zaleplon, (rebound insomnia). This problem usually goes away on its
    own after 1-2 nights.
  • Withdrawal symptoms may occur when sleep
    medicines are stopped suddenly after being used daily for a long
    time. In some cases, withdrawal symptoms may include unpleasant
    feelings. In severe cases, stomach and muscle cramps, vomiting,
    sweating, shakiness, and rarely seizures may occur. These more
    severe withdrawal symptoms are very uncommon. Although withdrawal
    symptoms have not been observed in studies of Zaleplon so far, there
    is, nevertheless, the risk of such events in association with the
    use of any sleep medicines.
  • There is a chance that you may experience a
    certain type of memory loss (amnesia). This can usually be avoided
    by taking Zaleplon only when you are able to get 4 or more hours of
    sleep before you need to be active again. If you do have memory
    problems while taking Zaleplon, tell your doctor.
  • There is a risk of becoming dependent on
    Zaleplon, as with any sleeping medication. However, if you have a
    history of addiction to alcohol or drugs your risk of your
    becoming dependent on Zaleplon is higher. Be sure to tell your
    doctor about any previous addictions to alcohol or drugs before
    you start taking Zaleplon.
  • Until you know if Zaleplon causes you
    drowsiness during the day, be extremely careful while doing
    anything that requires your complete attention, or physical
    coordination, like driving a car, or operating machinery.
  • Never drink alcohol while you are taking
    Zaleplon or any other sleep medication. Alcohol can increase the
    side effects of Zaleplon.
