... the dosage from 10 to 20 mg
It is not at all recommended to take a double dose of any med. the meds are supposed to be taken as they have been prescribed, however some general considerations on taking Zolpidem are:
It is taken once a day, immediately before bedtime.
It is recommended that you take your dose with a glass of water, not after a meal, and not with food.
It works very quickly; make sure that you are ready for sleep before taking zolpidem. Do not take it before driving or performing any tasks that require concentration.
For the medicine to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. It will not work if you take it differently than your doc has prescribed.
In general, it is used for only one to two days. It should not be used for more than one to two weeks. If you are still having trouble sleeping after one to two weeks, make sure to let your doc know.
Take care, be well, please, best wishes!
