FDA just approved a sublingual Ambien for “insomnia in the middle of the night followed by difficulty returning to sleep”
It has taken a few years, but the FDA has now approved Intermezzo, a low dose drug with the same active ingredient as Ambien. Zolpidem tartrate will now be in a sub-lingual tablet form rather than the sleeping pill, Ambien.

Sleeping pills have serious side effects and this issue has been raised by the FDA regarding Intermezzo. In fact, the FDA told manufacturer of the drug, Trancept previously that it was concerned about patients being too impaired to drive the day after use. Their answer was a revision of the warning label, “patients should have at least 4 hours of bedtime remaining”. The common side effects listed for this sleeping pill including headache, nausea and fatigue. As with Ambien and other prescription sleeping aids, Intermezzo can cause a person to get out of bed while not fully awake and do an activity that you do not know you are doing. Reported activities while under the influence of sleep medicines have included driving a car, making and eating food, having sex, talking on the phone, and sleep walking, without knowing at the time or remembering later. Chances of such adverse activity is increased if a person has consumed alcohol or taken other medicines that make them feel sleepy.
