I can tell you how it works, but I'm not sure it's going to be of much help. Zolpidem
) is a nonbenzodiazepine hypnotic of the imidazopyridine Class
. This drug binds very selectively to the benzodiazepine omega-1 receptor (unlike other benzodiazepines which bind non-selectively to omega-1, 2, and 3 receptor subtypes), It increases the frequency of chloride channel opening. When those channels open, it depresses the activity of the nerves 'attached' to these receptors, so firing goes down.
