Intermezzo (zolpidem) is a sedative, also called a hypnotic. It affects chemicals in your brain that may become unbalanced and cause sleep problems (insomnia).

Intermezzo sublingual tablets are used to treat insomnia characterized by middle-of-the-night waking followed by difficulty returning to sleep.

Intermezzo should only be used when a person has at least four hours of bedtime remaining. It should not be taken if alcohol has been consumed or with any other sleep aid.

Intermezzo is a class four federally controlled substance because it can be abused or lead to dependence. Keep this medicine in a safe place to prevent misuse and abuse.


Usual Adult Dose for Insomnia:

Intermezzo Sublingual Tablet: Initial and Maximum Dose: 1.75 mg (women) OR 3.5 mg (men)

Comments: The recommended initial doses for women and men are different due to the lower rate of drug clearance in females.

Use: as needed treatment of insomnia when a middle-of-the-night awakening is followed by difficulty returning to sleep.

Usual Geriatric Dose for Insomnia:

Intermezzo Sublingual Tablet: Men and women over the age of 65 years: 1.75 mg
