Acute zolpidem overdose--report of two cases

This report describes two cases of acute zolpidem overdose. The decedent in the first case was a 36-year-old female found dead in bed in her secured home.

The postmortem examination revealed cardiomegaly, pulmonary edema, hepatomegaly, mild coronary atherosclerosis, and no signs of trauma. The zolpidem blood concentrations of these cases are consistent with those of the previously published fatalities. The second case involved a 58-year old female, also found dead in bed, with white foam around her mouth. She was treated with risperidone and sertraline. Subsequent quantitation of postmortem iliac serum revealed 5.6 microg/L of 9-hydroxyrisperidone and the following zolpidem concentrations: blood (subclavian), 4.5 mg/L; blood (iliac), 7.7 mg/L; vitreous humor, 1.6 mg/L; bile, 8.9 mg/L; urine, 1.2 mg/L; liver, 22.6 mg/kg; and gastric contents, 42 mg.

More on how much Ambien is safe for you and Ambien overdose here. You can take too much Ambien (zolpidem) for a number of reasons.

Is it legal to prescribe this? I have been doing it on my own because the 12.5 is so expensive, the Dr. Ok. doesn’t want to prescribe it as such, and the 12.5 doesn’t work as well. HOW do you get off of this stuff? I have been on it since it first came out and touted how safe it was. Thank you for any help you can suggest to get out of this nightmare of my own making. All of this being said I really want to stop the use of it all together but it is a miserable process. Oddly, though I’ve increased my dose to the 12.5mg, it does not seem to work as well as a 10mg and a half of a 5mg.
