The medication increases and promotes the activity of GABA (Gamma aminobutyric acid). GABA is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. This chemical messenger inhibits certain brain signals and decreases activity in your nervous system.Zolpidem activates and enhances GABA activity, which inhibits the activity of neuronsthat are associated with insomnia. Essentially, it slows down the brain and helps the user relax which leads to sleep.
