I take half of a 10 mg of Zolpidem to help me sleep. Lately I have been experiencing crawling and itching of the skin. I have been on Zolpidem for over a year under a doctors care. I can't get a straight answer from my doctor on the side effects and how do I come off of it

Hello, Hector! How are you?

No, those are not listed as known side effects of this medication and it would be very unusual to have them crop up, after you've already been taking it for a year. The common side effects usually include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea and visual disturbances.

As to coming off it, as sudden withdrawal may cause some rebound effects, like severe insomnia and nervousness, so it is better to slowly taper it. The modern method usually involves starting to skip doses, such as taking it one night, skipping the next and so on, then increasing that to skipping 2 days, after a week or two, but your doctor will be better able to advise you on that.

I'm wondering what else might be causing your skin issue. Have you been using any new soaps or detergents? Are you on any other medications? Have you changed your diet recently?

Xanax caused itching/crawling skin for me. I have dry skin and am sensitive to many fillers.

If you've changed generic brands that might be a cause. The fillers can cause allergic reactions and worse for celiacs when gluten is used.
