An Introduction to Side Effects of Zolpidem Sublingual Tablets

Just like any medicine, zolpidem sublingual tablets (Edluar®Intermezzo®) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. In a survey of hospitalized people, less than 1 percent of those who took normal doses of zolpidem sublingual tablets reported experiencing side effects.
