New drugs under development will be required to carry out similar driving simulations as part of the approval process, Unger said, and makers of approved drugs will be asked to do so as well.

"Over the years," Unger said, "we have received reports of possible driving impairment and motor vehicle accidents related to zolpidem.".

New data suggest that the drugs can leave levels of zolpidem high enough the morning after use to impair activities such as driving, the agency said.
