Sir: Zolpidem is a nonbenzodiazepine hypnotic that is used in the treatment of short-term insomnia. Although zolpidem is generally safe and well tolerated, a number of cases of perceptual disturbances and psychosis have been described. At least 2 cases of probable zolpidem-related delirium have been reported.
