Drug and food interactions
Applies to: zaleplon
Taking zaleplon with a high-fat or heavy meal may delay the onset of sleep. For faster sleep onset, zaleplon should not be administered with or immediately after a high-fat or heavy meal. This will make it easier for your body to absorb the medication. You should avoid the use of alcohol while being treated with zaleplon.
