Can taking zolipem change my mental health?

Your mental health may change in unexpected ways while taking this medication. It is hard to tell if these changes are caused by zolpidem, or if they are caused by physical or mental illnesses that you already have or suddenly develop. Talk to your doctor immediately if you notice changes in your mood or behavior, including:  aggressiveness, strange or unusually outgoing behavior, hallucinations (seeing things or hearing voices that do not exist), feelings of being outside of your body, memory problems, difficulty concentrating, slow speech or movement, new or worsening depression, suicidal thoughts, confusion. Let your family know which symptoms are serious so they can call your doctor if you are unable to seek treatment on your own.
