The most hazardous therapeutic drugs for traffic safety are sedative-hypnotics of the benzodiazepine class and sleep-aid medications or so-called z-hypnotics (zolpidem, zopiclone, and zaleplon) [31].
We are also requiring a Contraindication, our strongest warning, to avoid use in patients who have previously experienced an episode of complex sleep behavior with eszopiclone, zaleplon, and zolpidem." "We identified 66 cases of complex sleep behaviors occurring with these medicines over the past 26 years that resulted in serious injuries, including death," the FDA said.

However, the benzodiazepine receptor agonists such as zaleplon, Zolpidem, and eszopiclone, while lacking evidence in the pediatric population, may be worthwhile considerations as their varying half-lives allow for specificity in treating sleep-onset vs.

The review looked at a range of benzodiazepines (which previous studies have associated with a greater risk for fracture), including diazepam, lorazepam, and temazepam, as well as non-benzodiazepine drugs that are considered safer than benzodiazepines (like Zolpidem, zaleplon, and zopiclone, which are often referred to as "Z-drugs").

If melatonin was unsuccessful, then zaleplon (Sonata[R]) was available (see Figure 2).
In addition, this recommendation is classified as "weak," and the associated evidence "low-quality." Medications reviewed included eszopiclone, zaleplon, Zolpidem, orexin receptor antagonist, melatonin, ramelteon, and benzodiazepines.
